The zoning authorities in the nation's oldest city have done an outstanding job of preserving the charm and history for both visitors and residents. In the original section of the city, horse-drawn carriages maneuver down narrow streets and lanes where Spanish-style buildings and walls are just a few feet from the curb. Homeowners can live above their shops or businesses just as they did more than three centuries ago. An ancient fort, Castillo de San Marcos, still stands, serving as a reminder of the protection residents enjoy in this low-crime rate community

Many of today's St. Augustine residents have traced their family roots to the Minorcan settlers who first navigated to the area in the early 1600s. While tourism plays a large part of the city' s commerce, there are other major employment opportunities as well. For instance, Northrup-Grumman's aircraft service facility is located here, as are the headquarters for the Florida East Coast Railway and the Florida National Guard.

Homes and lifestyles are as varied as the flags that have flown over the city since its founding. From condominiums on the ocean or waterway to gated golfing communities, from restored houses in the city to horse farms in the country, St. Augustine, in St. Johns County, has something for everyone.
