St. Augustine is the county seat of St. Johns County, Florida, in the United States.
It is the oldest continuously occupied European-established city, and the oldest port in the continental United States.
St. Augustine lies in a region of Florida known as The First Coast, which extends from Amelia Island in the north,
south to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Palm Coast.
According to the 2000 census, the city population was 11,592; in 2004, the population estimated by the
U.S. Census Bureau was 12,157
Forty miles north of Daytona Beach, Hwy-1 passes through the heart of ST AUGUSTINE . Few places in Florida are as
immediately engaging as this old city, with the size and even some of the looks of a small Mediterranean town. The oldest
permanent settlement in the US, with much from its early days still intact along its narrow streets, it also offers two alluring
lengths of beach just across the bay.
Ponce de León touched ground here in 1513, but European settlement began when Spain's Pedro Menéndez de Avilés put
ashore on St Augustine's Day in 1565. Sir Francis Drake's ships razed the town in 1586, the first of many battles before
Florida was eventually ceded to Britain in 1763. By then the town was a major social and administrative center, soon to be
capital of east Florida. Subsequently, Tallahassee became the capital of a unified Florida, and St Augustine's fortunes waned.
Expansion largely bypassed the town - a fact inadvertently facilitating the restoration program that has turned this \
quiet community into a fine historical showcase.
