The Colonial Quarter is part of Saint Augustine, which is Must-Visit location in the United States, especially if you live on or are visiting the Eastern part of the States. It is rich full of history, culture, architecture, and beauty. Being founded in 1565 it bears many of the “First in the United States” like the oldest house and the oldest wooden school house. But there are also fantastic shops and restaurants that that are fun to walk around especially at nights with the city illuminated and the moon glowing on the waters! And the incredible beaches are close too. My wife and I had the most phenomenal romantic/get-away weekend there while her mom watched our kids.
We enjoyed a great tour! I am not sure of our tour guides name, but he was knowledgeable and engaging! He was even able to get my introverted 12 year old to fire the cannon! My three children enjoyed the tour and learning some history of St. Augustine.
