Mixed menu with meat & fish choices best. Thanks

Harry's, O.C. Whites, and the Columbia are good restaurants. Check their websites to see if you like the food choices.

Stay away from Ripleys. The Castillo is not worth it unless you have a lifetime pass like we do.

Walk around Marie Sanchez Lake. Go to the Mission Nombre de Dios.

Walk around the south part of town (except Lincolnville) and just look at the interesting buildings and houses.

Anastasia State Park is great. On the day you leave, stop at Fort Matanzas and Washington Oaks State Park as you drive south on A1A. Along the way, the South Beach Grill is very good.

Cross over the Bridge of Lions, and I believe it is the 3rd left to the Conch House.

Yeah, we ate there for the first time a few weeks ago and thought it was great. We even saw dolphins in the water.

O'Steens nearby has great seafood for a very reasonable price, but it usually VERY crowded. They only accept cash.

Make sure you eat at Harry's, it's Louisiana style fish. It's the best outside of Lafayette Louisiana

Our favorites in St Augustine are:

Tini Martini Bar just to sit and have a drink while watching the world go by

Harry's on Avenida Menendez, get an outside table

Reef Restaurant, a bit out of town but overlooking the ocean

Taco Lu. The best Mexican restaurant in the USA. 85 different brands of tequila. Favorite place for PGA tour players during the Players Championship.

I was going to recommend Columbia. It's big and busy. But the food is great and it's a lot of fun.
