    Fun street to visiti
    Plan to spend plenty of time to explore all the stores, boutiques and food vendors along George Street in St. Augustine, Florida. Great places to visit, eat and enjoy some fun. Was a little disappointed in the homeless lounging about and some of the strange characters about the street. However, this is the fun place of St. Augustine.

    fun
    OK, first and foremost this is primarily a tourist driven street, like many others in tourist town. It is lined with shops and restaurants looking to sell something mixed in with historical sites. However, that doesn't mean it's not fun to walk around looking. You don't have to buy anything, just look around, listen to the singers in the restaurants, see the City Gates and The Oldest School. Try resisting the candy shops, ice cream and cold drinks.....but it's not easy! Walk in the shops and look around, if you like looking and window shopping, why not! Look for the "off the main street" store front for handmade a colonial period clothing shop, it's like shopping for clothes in the 1800s! There are several jewelry stores we enjoy looking in, but J.R. Benet is our favorite. The people are friendly and helpful and jewelry unique and not priced too high. As many other reviews have noted the only real negative to a walk along St. George street is the homeless people. Although we've never had an aggressive encounter some have been mentioned and it is sadly an inevitability it will/can happen. You owe it to yourself to walk down St. George at least once on your visit.

    Cute street with plenty to see, eat and buy
    Nice shops and restaurants mixed with old historical buildings. All local businesses. Plenty of coffee and ice cream shops. Stop in Hyppo for very unique popsicles. Steer clear of the skin products shop that entices you in with free samples and tries to sell you everything. Dont fall for that trap. Plenty of public restrooms to be found. Bin 39 wine bar is a lovely area to sit with a glass of wine ( no food) or have coffee at the local shop in that are as well.

    Worth the visit
    It was really an enjoyable morning things open up around 9 o’clock. we got there early because it gets crowded afternoon. We enjoy the shopping and the people watching and the old streets. The fort is close by which is definitely worth a visit we didn’t even go inside because we’re cheap but there is so much to see on the outside. strongly recommend the shop of Earthbound nice young ladies, and an eclectic offering you don’t see other places

The street was nice that there were no cars on it. Allowed for an easy walk. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars. If the sun is out, wear a hat and sunscreen as there is little shade on the street itself, unless you go into a business.

Lots of fun shops and restaurants. Shop for nick-nacks, clothing, hats, art, candy, and food. See the oldest schoolhouse. Reminded me of Europe.

Lots of stores to choose from. Lots of restaurants to choose from. Off the main path but worth it all. Smallest street is located in this area.

I’m not sure what I expected, but this is way too touristy for me. Crowded streets, souvenir shops, and lots of bums loitering about. Things have changed since we were here last time about 10 years ago. I just didn’t feel the history at all, with everyone wanting to take my money. A half day is plenty.

Shopping for crappy souvenirs or nice clothes. Grab a slice of pizza or key lime pie. Listen to some buskers or do some people watching. Go for a stroll day or night, there is a little something for everyone.

Many homeless persons loitering around or lying along the street. They make the area seem unsafe. During the day a large woman carrying a large Trump flag glared menacingly in my direction while yelling "We want Trump". I do not hold St. Augustine in very high regard.

If you're looking for Florida cheapo T-shirts, tacky souvenirs, greasy over-priced food & general schlock - look no further. Very disappointing array of shops along a crowded street. Only a couple decent clothing stores. Expected a much more 'upscale' experience in historic St. Augustine. We got out of there in a hurry.

This historic pedestrian street was fascinating to walk with all the history, but quite honestly, all things historical were overshadowed by all things commercial and by the crowds.
