      Whenever I go down to St. Augustine, Florida, for a few days, there is one attraction I love best. It’s hard to choose a “best” in a city full of wonderful historical treasures and many things to see and do, but the way to see them all is to take the St. Augustine Sightseeing Trains. The Sightseeing Trains resemble the tour trolleys of old, and not only are they cute, they’re informative. Each tour guide tells important stories of St. Augustine in a fun, entertaining manner,

      and since you can get off and on the trolley at each designated tour stop, you’ll get many trolleys and many different storytellers in the course of a day.

      The tour trolley is important for first time visitors because it gives such a good overview of the Oldest City. There are different places in St. Augustine where you can board the Sightseeing Trains. When you purchase a ticket ($20.99 for grown-ups, and no charge for children younger than twelve), you also have the option to use ...

      • the shuttle that travels to nearby tourist haven Anastasia Island, where the St. Augustine Lighthouse is located. There are various combo tickets you can take advantage of.

        For the last few times when we bought tickets, we received free admission to the Old Florida Museum. Fun for a first-time trip with kids, but nothing special. One of my favorite memories about the Sightseeing Trains include the creaky sound of the not-so-quiet brakes; it seemed appropriate in the “Ancient City”! These trains are a lot of fun

        to ride, especially bouncing around on the cobblestone Aviles Street and hearing the many unique stories of St. Augustine’s history.

        I’ve never had a trip to St. Augustine where I didn’t love the trolley tour. Some of the places you will be able to get off the trolley include the 17th century fortress Castillo de San Marcos, the Gonzalez-Alvarez or “Oldest” House, the Fountain of Youth Park, the St. Augustine Scenic Cruise, old Spanish mission Nombre de Dios, and Potter’s Wax Museum; there are many more to choose from.
