National Geographic Lists St. Augustine in World’s 20 Must-See Places

St. Augustine, Fla., has made the list of National Geographic Traveler’s World’s Top 20 Places to See. The northeast Florida city, founded in 1565, is one of only four locations in the United States included on the international list.

National Geographic Traveler published the list this week. Other U.S. cities that made the list are Memphis, Tenn.; Missouri River Banks, MT; and Hudson Valley, N.Y.

By including St. Augustine on its list of must see places, National Geographic’s editors praised the city for maintaining the genuine “old Florida” culture and charm and preserving its nearly 450-year-old historical assets. Editors specifically recommended the 17th century Castillo de San Marcos, which stands sentry over the pristine Bayfront, and the Lightner Museum built by Henry Flagler in 1887 in the Spanish Renaissance style. Flagler College (the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, also built by Henry Flagler), which Princeton Review listed among the country’s most beautiful college campuses, was highlighted along with the pedestrian friendly Spanish colonial St. George Street and the St. Augustine Lighthouse, Florida’s first lighthouse.

This is not the first time National Geographic has recognized St. Augustine. In December 2011, National Geographic selected St. Augustine as one of the ten best places in the world to see holiday lights. St. Augustine’s popular Nights of Lights illuminates the city’s historic district with more than three million tiny white lights, providing a brilliant setting for the city’s holiday events each year from late November through January.

And At Journey’s End Bed & Breakfast was named as one of the Top 25 Inns in the United States by winning Trip Advisor’s Travelers Choice Award in 2012…so no better place to stay while visiting St.Augustine!
