Cool Things to Do in St. Augustine this Summer

Rent a bicycle for the day. Whether you want to explore the sites of Historic Downtown in style or would rather go for a nature ride on the 19-mile Palatka-to-St. Augustine cement-paved trail, bicycling can provide hours of fun!

Ride a catamaran on Matanzas River. A catamaran ride on the portion of Matanzas River that parallels Historic Downtown will provide views of historical sites as well as a glance at vegetation and wildlife along the river – without the risks of a jet ski or the boundaries of a boat!

Learn the history on a walking history tour. If you are wary about being confined in rooms for too long, a walking history tour is a great way to learn about the Nation's Oldest City while still breathing in fresh air!

Give stand up paddleboarding a try. Contrary to popular belief, paddleboarding is easier to learn than most sports. In fact, if taught correctly, it can be learned over the course of a day.

Go to a drive-in movie theatre. Remember years ago when this was the "thing" to do? Create new memories while staying in the comfort of your own vehicle and watching the latest blockbuster releases.

Attend an online workout class from a local. The fun doesn't stop in Historic Downtown! Engage with our local community by attending an online workout class. If you'd like to do the workout outside, just ask your innkeeper for the WIFI password and if they have an outdoor space available for you to use!

Fish from the St. Augustine Beach Pier. The St. Augustine Beach Pier maintains a fishing license which means that a license isn't required to fish from the pier. Additionally, don't worry if you didn't pack a fishing rod in your luggage, you can rent equipment at the bait and tackle shop.

Watch a virtual film from La Corazon, a local theater. Could you go for a movie night but don't want to visit a theater? Not a problem. Just stream a virtual film from La Corazon Cinema & Cafe while staying in the comfy bed at one of our inns!

Fish with the experts during a fishing charter. Learning is fun! What better way to learn about our waters than with the professionals? Whether you're looking for a half-day of fun on our Intracoastal ways or an entire day fun on the Atlantic Ocean, fishing charters are fun, educational, and recreational!

Rent a boat for the day. Have your boating license? Then our waters are yours to explore at your own pace!

Learn about our local ecosystems via a kayaking tour. Soaking up rays, being active, and learning about our local ecosystems sounds like the perfect "to-do" to add to your staycation or vacation in St. Augustine!

Swim with dolphins at Marineland Adventure. If you've had enough time splashing in the Atlantic Ocean but still need to cool off, swimming dolphins at Marineland should be your next stop!

Parasail the day away. Looking for adventure? Parasailing is a fun, safe way to release the inner adventurer in you. Also, this activity is sure to make a lasting memory!

Unwind with yoga taught by locals. Since vacations and staycations are all about unwinding and relaxing, we know that our local yogis will be a great source of help in achieving just that!
