Every time I visit the area I enjoy it more, from the Oldest City's historic charm to the beautiful beaches and natural areas nearby. This region of northeast Florida is a haven for wildlife -- particulary birds migrating through here along the Great Florida Birding Trail -- and a center for wildlife research.

Both tours were led by St. Augustine resident photographer Jackie Kramer, whose pictorial book "Sacred St. Augustine" reveals most of the historic churches and graveyards in exquisite detail. I highly recommend spending time exploring the many churches and cemeteries which are each such an integral part of the history of St. Augustine. This can be a fascinating way to spend an afternoon -- as well as an awesome history lesson!
