“I love St. Augustine and can easily spend all day walking those old streets and visiting the quint shops, restaurants, museums and people watching. But in the hot summer heat, it can be unbearable. To buy a trolley ticket for $25 per adult, it is good all day, easy on/off as the day progresses and plans develop. The only way to visit St. Augustine!”
