old forts and shops

Visit St. Augustine, Florida.  It is a wonderful place to be and see.  The old fort, built during the Spanish occupation of Florida, offers everything history buffs require.  Guided tours are available as well as the opportunity to explore the fort and grounds on your own.  The heavy walls are constructed of crushed shell and each room in the fort has detailed informational plaques to read.  The fort is operated and maintained by the National Parks Service.  When you are done visiting the fort, please amble on over to St. George street and enjoy the flavor of this quaint shopping area.  There are small shops offering everything from handmade designer handicrafts to more commercialized items.  Restaurants abound with a Cuban sandwich shop catching my eye.  yummy, yum  Just delicious!  Stay for the day and bask in the history.   (also, wear sunscreen because the fort is open to the elements.)
