Wander leisurely through the historic district’s specialty shops...
Your shopping instinct may motivate you to take home a reminder of your visit, be it jewelry or clothing. Whatever you desire, the shopping experience in St. Augustine will reward you with outstanding selections.
Wander leisurely through the historic district’s specialty shops and stop for lunch or a praline. It’s all part of letting the cares of the world pass you by. Avid collectors gravitate to the Old City and the antique district for nautical artifacts, old maps and fine cutlery prized by collectors. If your taste runs to imported English and French antiques, or Victorian and Edwardian linens and china, specialty shops carry an excellent assortment.
Not only is the St. Augustine area a fantastic place for antique hunting, it’s also the place to find sophisticated accent pieces and stained glass that will redirect the focus of a room. Besides an abundance of yesterday’s treasures, you’ll find the latest in resort wear and precious gemstone jewelry here too. Look for the hottest tropical fashions in beach boutiques and check out the outlet malls for your favorite signature labels.
Even more fun, prepare for a day on the beach with a new pair of bejeweled sandals or a trendy cover-up. You’ll find a fantastic assortment of swim suits for the whole family. You'll also find surf boards, skimmers, sand toys for the little ones and sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes. There’s even more to see off the beaten path in neighborhood specialty shops and in the air-conditioned comfort of “everything under-one-roof centers”.
While you have the time, stroll through the fine art and contemporary photography galleries. You may find the perfect memento of your vacation. Sometimes the best part of shopping is to bask in the glow of knowing you have made just the right choice.
