St. Augustine's History
St. Augustine's history is, in a word, epic. As the nation’s oldest continuously occupied settlement, established in 1565, St. Augustine is 456 years young. Its historic districts are filled with sites and architecture that tell the story of a coastal city that has hosted the hopes and dreams of many people. From the indiginous tribes, to the earliest European settlers, to wealthy industrialists and snowbirds from the late 19th century, to the foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement, St. Augustine is hallowed ground. And history is in the making as newcomers arrive daily to make their homes and businesses here. What part will you play in St. Augustine’s next chapter?

Health and Wellness
Maintaining good health is easier when you live in a sunny, mild climate which allows for outdoor activity year-round. Have you ever practiced yoga on the beach? It’s a game changer when you do triangle pose and your drishti is upon the endless blue sky. Alternative therapies such as massage and chiropractic medicine are also widely available in the Ancient City. Feeling great should never be a privilege; it is an imperative for enjoying the good life that St. Augustine offers. Viva!
