The Casa Monica Hotel is a gorgeous, historic building dating back to 1888. This 138-room hotel is located in a convenient, central location near many of St. Augustine's top attractions. The Spanish-villa-meets-Arabian-Nights theme creates a historic, romantic vibe in the lobby, and the theme continues into the rooms. Details such as dim lighting, dramatic, velvet headboards, wrought iron accents, and red oriental-style carpets will appeal to some, though others might find them kitschy. Highlights include a sunny rooftop pool with large surrounding patio and a spacious fitness center. There is also a convenient on-site cafe, restaurant, and bar, as well as manicured grounds. However, pricey fees for Wi-Fi and parking might encourage some guests to compare other options in St. Augustine.

Nicknamed the "Ancient City," St. Augustine is the oldest continually occupied European-established city in the country. This Florida city is known for a romantic vibe with streets lined by beautiful architecture. Some buildings date back to the 1600s while "newer" structures from the 19th-century still celebrate the Spanish colonial style but on a larger and grander scale.
St. George Street is the main street of St. Augustine's historic district. Almost all attractions center around the city's history; Castillo de San Marco, the oldest masonry fort in the U.S., attracts visitors, as does the Markland Mansion, and even the original Ripley's Believe It or Not! is housed in a historic mansion. The historic district has a compact but lively nightlife with one of the most popular activities being ghost tours. Anastasia Park has some of the best beaches in the area, as well as a lagoon and several hiking and walking trails.
