STAY A WHILE AND VISIT FLORIDA’S HISTORIC COAST
Unparalleled history. Abundant nightlife. Amazing architecture. Eclectic dining. Boutique shopping. Luxury accommodations. Natural habitat and abundant wildlife. You’ll find it all on Florida’s Historic Coast – just a few short miles from the race’s host hotel in St. Johns county.
Peek into the past on a tour of Castillo de San Marcos in the nation’s oldest city of Saint Augustine, or eat homemade ice cream while walking down St. George Street to the vibrant sounds of local street musicians and artistically inclined Flagler College students.
In 2015, St. Augustine celebrated its 450th anniversary — a milestone no other city in the U.S. can claim. It’s easy to see why this seaside city claims its history is unparalleled. Saint Augustine’s historic fort, stunning Spanish Colonial architecture and brick-paved streets, along with more than 60 historic sites and attractions, serve as authentic reminders of a bygone era. Around every corner and turn through town is an experience in old world charm and a rich and diverse culture.
Adventure seekers can hike, kayak and explore miles of pristine Florida habitat, quietly spotting plenty of wildlife along the way. More than nine plus miles of nature trails wind through the GTM Research Reserve located on scenic A1A. The coastal estuary offers incredible views of lush vegetation, nesting bald eagles, and possible encounters with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins and the West Indian manatee.
