As the oldest European-established city and one of the most haunted cities in the United States, St. Augustine, Fla. is a popular tourist attraction, and it’s a great destination for history buffs, lovers of architecture, ghost enthusiasts or anyone else looking to visit a beautiful city with lots to see. 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. Rest your feet during a Scenic Cruise on the Victory III and enjoy a unique sightseeing opportunity from the water for $16.75.


For lunch, stop by the Spanish Bakery and choose from an empanada, smoked sausage, chicken soup or picadillo lunch combo for $5.50, and add dessert for a few dollars more. 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.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
