The colony of St Augustine was first founded by the Spanish when Pedro Menendez de Aviles landed on the Florida coast in September 1565. The famous admiral first spotted the land of St. Augustine FL on August 28th, which happened to be the feast day of Augustine of Hippo, thus he named the area San Agustin, after the renowned philosopher and Saint. The colony was the first established European colony in North America, as these events occurred 21 years prior to the English settlement at Roanoke Island in Virginia and 42 years prior to the settlement of Jamestown. With such a vast history, St Augustine is a dynamic and unique city filled with new and old influences. Having survived several wars, conflicts and a few occupations, St Augustine is a city filled with diversity and creativity. After thriving for more than five centuries, St Augustine today is a very popular spot to enjoy a Florida Beach Vacation.
