Here are some things you can do during a day in St. Augustine for under $100.


Treat yourself to pumpkin pancakes with peach butter for breakfast at the Yard Bird Cafe for just $6. St. Augustine is extremely walkable, so take a stroll down St. George Street and do some souvenir shopping while you walk off breakfast.

By this point, you’re bound to have seen the Castillo de San Marcos, the only 17th-century military fortress in the United States. Explore it from the inside and learn about its fascinating design and construction for just $7.


For dinner, stop by Catch 27 for their famous southern shrimp and grits for $20, and end the night on a creepy note with the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! night owl combo for a haunted tour, visit to the Odditorium and mini-golf for $38.99.
