Description

from Colonial Quarter
Journey back in time through centuries of St. Augustine history, from our distinctive 35-foot watchtower and colonial buildings to shops and dining.
Take an immersive, captivating journey through centuries of St. Augustine's rich history, brought to breathtaking life at the Colonial Quarter—the revitalized two-acre signature attraction in the heart of the downtown historic district.

Experience the Nation's Oldest City like never before with a Historical Adventure Tour that immerses you in the sights, sounds and smells of three centuries. You can also climb to the top of a 17th century watchtower replica, dine on classic Pub fare and Spanish Tapas and more!

Stroll the Flags Over St. Augustine boardwalk, each step a passage through the centuries beneath the very flags that have flown over this Ancient City for over 450 years—from the flag that likely flew on the mast of Juan Ponce de Leon's ship as he explored Florida's northeast coast to today's 50-star Stars & Stripes.

Visit our 16th Century Ship building project to see a handcrafted 50-foot caravel rising one story into the sky! A caravel was used by the Spanish in the 16th century, including by Don Juan Ponce de Leon, who claimed Florida for Spain in 1513, and Don Pedro Menendez de Aviles, who founded St. Augustine in 1565.

As Europe entered the Age of Exploration and began exploring new worlds, caravels were able to traverse unknown coastlines closer to shore than larger ships and travel deeper into bays and rivers.

Boatwrights like ours played an important role in exploration by designing and building new ships, and repairing those damaged by storms, reefs, sand bars, and attack by other ships.

Get hands-on with buried artifacts in our dig boxes. Get an intriguing glimpse into archaeological investigations that took place on the very ground you'll walk upon at the Colonial Quarter, real evidence that suggests it might have been the site of an early wooden fort burned in the late 1600s.

This was open during the preparations for the night march and other adventures. Period groups come from all around and use this as a staging area. The exhibits for the different areas are still there and some were manned and explanations given. This was a great way to see

Our tour guide was entertaining and informative. The presentation did feel a bit short but I think that if it was much longer it would have been too long. The only down side of this site was the live music next door that distracted us from time to time. But it wasn’t really an issue.

Short tour with limited demonstrations. It appears like a large area, but very disappointing. Large student group was so noisy we couldn't' t hear half the information.

We had a great time just meandering around looking at everything. Tons of shops mixed in with old buildings. Lots to see and do.
