Parking is awful in the downtown/historic area of St. Augustine. So save yourself some stress and ride the Red Train to get around. The driver also gives a nice tour of the area while stopping at different points of interest.

We do offer a less expensive ticket called a “Once around.” On this tour, you do not get on and off and you just take the tour which lasts a little over an hour. Maybe that would be a good option and save you some money... More
