    This street has it all
    Whatever you're looking for its all here, a bite to eat, a sweet treat, that perfect hat, a gift to take home or just a beer and a place to people watch! We discovered the St Augustine Seafood Company and ate there 3 days in a row. Our bartender Shannon felt like an old friend and the oysters were so good, especially with Shannon's recommendation for a local IPA!

    A mandatory St. Augustine walk — why again! LOL!
    Big crowds, the biggest we’ve seen in years. Some unique shops, one or two nice restaurants, mainly tourist shops with the same sort of T-shirt stuff you’d expect. Parking close by is an adventure but that’s Florida so no surprise there. For me the fort and the plaza and other side streets are just as fascinating to walk down and the minute you step off St. George street the crowds disappear. If you go to Saint Augustine you are going to walk this street so why am I even reviewing it LOL!

    A Tourist Trap
    Everyone must walk and experience St. George Street. However, look beyond the litany of souvenir shops and enjoy some of the oldest buildings in the country. There are even some well located VRBO/AirBnB like accommodations that allow you to stay right in the middle of this vibrant area.

    Saint Augustine was Great, Our hotel not so much.
    My wife and I had a great time while visiting Saint Augustine. There are so many things to see and do along St. George Street, Charlotte Street and the surrounding area. The shops, eateries and bars provided us with many choices. Everywhere we went the people were exceptionally friendly. We were a bit surprised at the amount of homeless people in the area however, it was never a problem. When we gave a homeless person a sandwich, he was very polite and appreciative. However, if you're looking at accommodations, please do not stay at the Holiday Inn Express Saint Augustine North on Route 16. As an IGH member since 1994, I have never stayed at a Holiday Inn Express that was so disturbing. The whole experience from our accommodations to the continental breakfast was a horrible experience. Hotel management was unavailable the entire weekend. We weren't able to shower for 2 days due to uncontrollable how water in our shower. However, the employees on site were professional and tried to assist the best they could. To date we haven't received any communication from hotel management regarding our stay.

    Fun street to visiti
    Plan to spend plenty of time to explore all the stores, boutiques and food vendors along George Street in St. Augustine, Florida. Great places to visit, eat and enjoy some fun. Was a little disappointed in the homeless lounging about and some of the strange characters about the street. However, this is the fun place of St. Augustine.

    fun
    OK, first and foremost this is primarily a tourist driven street, like many others in tourist town. It is lined with shops and restaurants looking to sell something mixed in with historical sites. However, that doesn't mean it's not fun to walk around looking. You don't have to buy anything, just look around, listen to the singers in the restaurants, see the City Gates and The Oldest School. Try resisting the candy shops, ice cream and cold drinks.....but it's not easy! Walk in the shops and look around, if you like looking and window shopping, why not! Look for the "off the main street" store front for handmade a colonial period clothing shop, it's like shopping for clothes in the 1800s! There are several jewelry stores we enjoy looking in, but J.R. Benet is our favorite. The people are friendly and helpful and jewelry unique and not priced too high. As many other reviews have noted the only real negative to a walk along St. George street is the homeless people. Although we've never had an aggressive encounter some have been mentioned and it is sadly an inevitability it will/can happen. You owe it to yourself to walk down St. George at least once on your visit.

    Cute street with plenty to see, eat and buy
    Nice shops and restaurants mixed with old historical buildings. All local businesses. Plenty of coffee and ice cream shops. Stop in Hyppo for very unique popsicles. Steer clear of the skin products shop that entices you in with free samples and tries to sell you everything. Dont fall for that trap. Plenty of public restrooms to be found. Bin 39 wine bar is a lovely area to sit with a glass of wine ( no food) or have coffee at the local shop in that are as well.

Lots of stores to choose from. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Off the main path but worth it all. Smallest street is located in this area.

I’m not sure what I expected, but this is way too touristy for me. Crowded streets, souvenir shops, and lots of bums loitering about. Things have changed since we were here last time about 10 years ago. I just didn’t feel the history at all, with everyone wanting to take my money. A half day is plenty.

Shopping for crappy souvenirs or nice clothes. Grab a slice of pizza or key lime pie. Listen to some buskers or do some people watching. Go for a stroll day or night, there is a little something for everyone.

Many homeless persons loitering around or lying along the street. They make the area seem unsafe. During the day a large woman carrying a large Trump flag glared menacingly in my direction while yelling "We want Trump". I do not hold St. Augustine in very high regard.

If you're looking for Florida cheapo T-shirts, tacky souvenirs, greasy over-priced food & general schlock - look no further. Very disappointing array of shops along a crowded street. Only a couple decent clothing stores. Expected a much more 'upscale' experience in historic St. Augustine. We got out of there in a hurry.

This historic pedestrian street was fascinating to walk with all the history, but quite honestly, all things historical were overshadowed by all things commercial and by the crowds.

Parking is extremely limited throughout St. Augustine. Since I cannot walk great distances, I was unable to enjoy many of the attractions. The hop on-off trolley was helpful and I wish I would’ve gotten a ticket for a second day, however I still would’ve not been able to do many things, including the water tour. Parking was nonexistent for that, but fortunately their website warned of it so we didn’t buy a ticket and lose the money.

If you are able to get around w no difficulty, I think you’ll enjoy your time in St. Augustine.

We stopped here one afternoon after visiting a few other things in the area. Wow, what a tourist trap. We went to St Augustine for history and was extremely disappointed. We went during the week and even then, it was crazy busy. And the amount of homeless, not my idea of a good time. We have been wanting to visit St Augustine for years. It's a complete one and done for us, never again.
