St. Augustine: Sightseeing Train Tour

Trolley tour!

We’ve pretty much decided that the best way to see St. Augustine (especially if you’re limited on time) is to take a trolley or a sightseeing train tour.  There are two different companies that are pretty much the same price-wise.  We liked the discount you get at the original Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum (we’ll discuss that later–it’s definitely worth doing) if you buy a Sightseeing Train Tour pass.

The tour takes about an hour and a half to complete and takes you all over St. Augustine to all the points of interest.  Your ticket ($22/person for adults – click here for more ticket pricing and information) is valid to ride the train for three consecutive days (just show them the receipt).  The train stops at about 22 stops, so if you want to get out and explore at any stop, you can.  A train stops at all 22 locationx every 15-20 minutes, so when you’re ready to resume the train tour, just climb aboard the next red train. 

Seth and I especially enjoyed our conductors.  You would think that a narrated tour would get really old really fast, but we were spellbound listening to all the history these conductors knew.  They filled the entire hour and a half with facts, anecdotes, and tips only the locals know–a value in and of itself.  It was one of the conductors who recommended we read A People’s History of the United States.

So would we go back? 
Seth and I have decided that we’re SO NOT through with St. Augustine!  There is so much we want to experience still.  As soon as we can, we’re going back!
