The Oldest US City

This past weekend, Gabriel and I enjoyed time away in St. Augustine, Florida. There is something so special about getting away, just the two of us. Although we both have weekends off from our daytime jobs, there's always a running to-do list around our house. Getting away gives us a chance to put those pesky tasks on hold and relax, explore, spend time together and dream.

Enjoy time away with your spouse or family. Sometimes, I find the little moments mean so much more than the big ones combined.


My thoughts on St. Augustine:

I will start off by saying, if you've never been, it's definitely worth checking out. Think Savannah, except much smaller and tourist-y. You can pretty much see everything in 1 to 2 days max.


- If you are looking for a place to stay, I would recommend the Hilton or the Casa Monica Hotel. Although we did not stay in either, we had a chance to talk to locals and this is what they recommended. We stayed at the World Golf Hall of Fame, just a few miles north.


- For dinner on Saturday night, we decided to go for sushi in Jacksonville. Cozy little spot - we loved dinner. For $46.00 we ordered so much sushi, we couldn't even finish our plates. RARE!

-Breakfast was eaten at a local bakery called the Bunnery which was recommended by a dear blogger friend, Nilda. The biscuits were to die for!

- We ordered afternoon lattes at Cafe Dolce and were pretty blown away by the southern hospitality and quality.

Others meals were spent at our usual favorite spots: Chilies, Chipotle etc. 

Must See:

-Flagler College

-Matanzas Inlet

-The Fort

-The Missionary

-Henry Flagler's House

-Old Town Road

-St. Augustine Paper Co. (for paper lovers like me!!!)

All in all, St. Augustine was the perfect place to get away and disconnect for the weekend.

Where do you go to disconnect?
