September is for Locals

Explore your city with these amazing discounts

These discounts were for September 2023. You can still find free things to do and explore St. Augustine like a local. We will provide discount information for September 2024 next summer.

Every September, St. Johns County residents experience St. Augustine as tourists because local attractions and businesses offer exclusive discounts. These discounts enable residents to rediscover the city's captivating charm while fostering a deeper appreciation for its history and culture.

Residents must present a valid ID with their St. Johns County address to receive discounts. Acceptable IDs include a driver's license or voter registration card.
