St. Augustine is a city in the Southeastern United States, on the Atlantic coast of northeastern Florida. It is a quaint, coastal town with beautiful beaches and equally beautiful communities. Founded in 1565 by Spanish explorers, it is the oldest continuously inhabited European-established settlement in the contiguous United States and is recognized as the oldest city in the country.
St. Augustine was founded by Spanish admiral Pedro Menéndez de Avilés, Florida's first governor. He named the settlement "San Agustín", as his ships bearing settlers, troops, and supplies from Spain had first sighted land in Florida eleven days earlier on August 28, the feast day of St. Augustine. The city served as the capital of Spanish Florida for over 200 years. It was designated as the capital of British East Florida when the colony was established in 1763; Great Britain returned Florida to Spain in 1783.
The county seat of St. Johns County, St. Augustine is part of Florida's First Coast region and the Jacksonville metropolitan area. Since the late 19th century, St. Augustine's distinct historical character has made the city a tourist attraction.
St. Johns County is home to more than 190,000 people that are served by three municipalities and the county government. The county is 608 square miles and is surrounded with beaches, riverfront, and dozens of historical landmarks, which makes it ideally positioned to attract visitors and industry.
St. Johns County has 2 incorporated cities: St. Augustine and St. Augustine Beach. Unincorporated communities include Ponte Vedra, Switzerland, Crescent Beach, Hastings, Tocoi, Bakersville, Picolatta, Orangedale, Fruit Cove, Summer Haven and Vilano Beach. St. Augustine, the county seat, was incorporated under Florida law on December 2, 1924.
