Another reason St Augustine is the best place to visit, love, and live. Preservation! That’s right; St Augustine is among the best places in the US for historic preservation (According to Livabilty.com) and the older I get, the better preservation sounds.
You would expect to read about Charleston, Savannah, et al… on lists like this, but the story about our little St Augustine in the St Augustine Record was confirmation of what I always felt. St Augustine is full of history and is not afraid to preserve it!
While the story reports St Augustine having 37 properties on the National Register of Historic Places, what it does not report is that St Augustine it’s self has other designations, as an Historic Landmark, Nation’s oldest Port, Oldest churches in the Americas (Yes, Christ Landed here – thank God), and the list goes on and on.
