Event information

Take a walk through history as you tour the wonders of "the oldest city in the United States." Pass by the old Spanish rock walled fort, Castillo San Marco, which withstood British artillery attacks in 1740; continue through a National Cemetery and numerous historical sites; ride in a horse-drawn carriage; visit unique shops and restaurants. The city has a diverse selection of outstanding museums. Throughout the town's architecture you will see the legacy of Henry Flagler, one of the founders of Standard Oil Company and the creator of the currently operating Florida East Coast Railroad.
