St. George Street

A hot spot for local dining, shopping, and history.

St. George Street was historically the city's heart and continues to be a hub of activity today. The pedestrian-only street is lined with restaurants, shops, attractions, and history galore that makes it a hot spot for visitors and locals.

Walk through the City Gate and return to the Spanish Colonial times. From the architecture to the museums at every corner, there is plenty to see. Check out landmarks such as the Oldest Wooden School House and the Peña-Peck House, and soak in the beauty of the Cathedral Basilica — the oldest Catholic Church in the country. Just off the main strip, tour and experience the Shipwreck Museum, Colonial Quarter, Governor's House, and the Pirate & Treasure Museum.

Try the local cuisine from various restaurants/eateries including the Columbia Restaurant, Prohibition Kitchen, Pizza Time, Burrito Works Taco Shop, and Boat Drinks. Also, meander through the unique shops to pick up the perfect souvenir.

After the sun goes down, St. George Street stays alive for the nighttime crowd. Whether to hear haunting stories on the Ghost St. Augustine tours or to hear live music — Colonial Oak Music Park, Harry's Seafood Bar & Grille, Mill Top Tavern — there is something for everyone to enjoy on and around St. George Street.
