St. Augustine, Florida

Slowly Reopens

The Nation's Oldest City is welcoming visitors and residents at a slow pace.

As Florida takes the steps permitted in Phase 1: Reopening Florida to slowly reopen the state, St. Augustine and the surrounding area are following suit. Businesses, restaurants, attractions, state parks, museums, hair salons, barbershops, and more have reopened for business in a limited-capacity – and so have some of our Historic Inns.

Attractions & Museums

St. Augustine is home to over 60 attractions and museums. These establishments go a long way in filling up the itineraries of locals and travelers alike. Luckily, many of the area's most popular attractions and museums have reopened in an effort to Reopen Florida.

As these establishments reopen, each of them is abiding by local regulations and policies. However, how they go about ensuring the safety of their guests may be different across individual attractions. While some are open for regular business hours, others are open for limited hours,. And while some are only taking reservations or only letting one family at a time visit their establishment others have extra sanitation stations and precautionary rules.

Please call each attraction before visiting them to ensure you are prepared for your visit.

The idea in Reopening Florida is to reopen the state at a slow and steady pace. Currently, grocery stores, restaurants, retail stores, salons, barbershops, spas, and other shops are open in a limited capacity. However, during the next phases, we can expect to see more establishments reopen such as night clubs and gyms.
