tell me if the St Augustine real estate market is overvalued or
compared to other real estate markets.
That's a pretty broad question
as there are so many areas in St. Augustine. The downtown tourist
area, of course, if overvalued. There are many communities
on the outskirts of downtown that are
within value. We also
have golf course gated communities that are way overvalued. So it
depends on where you want to live. I don't think there
are too many areas within St. Augustine that
compared to the rest of Florida in general.
We have many run-down areas
that are being bought up by builders where you can get a very good
value right now, but as soon as those areas are known then they, of
course, will go up in value.
Good evening, planning to visit
St. Augustine for the first time this April. Can you advise a
unique although not costly dining
Creekside which is located by
the Home Depot on Ponce de Leon Blvd. It's not in the tourist area
so you'll need a car. You can sit outside and they
have a guitar player. The locals eat there a lot.
If you're going
to be over on Anastasia Island, there's a restaurant called La Strada.
but I can't remember the prices.
They're not ridiculous though, I know that.
Caps on the Water is
good if you're over on the St Aug beach side. They're really good
and you can sit out on the deck on the Intracoastal and
watch the boats go by.
Then we have your normal restaurants, chain
restaurants, like Carabbas, Red Lobster, Johnny
(GREAT Jalapeno Talapia). Those are all on Highway 312.
Where do the locals eat? Have
lived in St. Augustine back in the 60's and worked at the
for the deaf and blind. I will be returning in July and would love to eat
good. Please advise me of your
Restaurants are my speciality.
I don't like to cook! If you're looking for $15 - 25 plates,
is the best. It's on San Marco.
looking for less than $15.00 then I would have to say Creekside by the
Home Depot on
Ponce de Leon Blvd. You can sit outside and
hear a guitar player.
Glad you're coming
I need to know where to go that
would interest and entertain our twin daughters. They
animals. I know they will like the alligator farm, is there
any where else? Is the
water park still there?
Its been 8 years since our last visit. We love your city, and
wait to return. We will be there in June.
The best place to get
information for kids is http://www.staugustineforkids.com
is loaded with information. Yes the waterpark is still
Also you may look into Fiesta Falls Miniature Golf Course, and
Black Forest Stables
Anastasia State Park. In summer, the annual
Beach Bash takes place the first Saturday in June.
the summer, campfire programs on Saturday nights include a fire circle,
entertainment and living history
We want to camp with a pop up
on or near a beach and plan to surf fish
Can you name a good tackle
store , campground and beach we can drive on?
How is the fishing in
Directly across the street from
the ocean is Ocean Grove Camp Resort, 4225 A1A South, St
The next one is North Beach
Camp Resort, 4125 Coastal Hwy, St Augustine 904-824-1806.
Their website is: http://www.northbeachcamp.com/
I would think
they both have bait shops on the grounds but I'm sure the website can give
additional information. I don't fish so I can't tell you what
the fishing is like in April. I'm sorry!

will be grate- fully received.
Thank you ,best wishes
You will have a wonderful time
here in St. Augustine. There's surely enough to keep you busy for
one week in downtown St. Augustine in the historic district then
another week out at the beach!!
You can also use St.
Augustine as a "homebase" and travel down to Daytona Beach (45 minutes)
and Orlando (2 1/2 hours).
If you like to golf, it would take
at least 2 weeks to play all the courses in the area!
Let me give you
some of the websites that I would recommend checking out before your
they have the most comprehensive lists of Things To
