St Augustine: Critique this newbie's itinerary for 3-day weekend

CFByrne | Apr 25, 201505:23 AM

South Florida hounds coming to spend our first weekend in St Augustine Historic District next weekend (May 1-3).

Our tastes run from Michael’s Genuine in Miami to Buccan in Palm Beach to The Ravenous Pig and Luma on Park in Winter Park.

But since we’re hitting St Aug, I would definitely be up focusing on local specialties (Spanish, datil peppers, that Minorcan chowder etc).

Staying at Best Western Bayfront, just a few blocks from St George and Cuna. Have a car.

Here’s my rough draft itinerary. Please comment and even suggest top bites at any of these spots:

Arrive mid-afternoon Friday.

Friday late afternoon (5PM) pre-show dinner at Michael’s Tasting Room

Friday night Wilco show at St Augustine Amphitheatre

Friday late night spot for craft beer and maybe music back in Historic District? I am a fan.

Saturday Breakfast

Rest of Saturday: See the sights.

Saturday lunch at The Floridian

Saturday evening our “big dinner” at Columbia

Sunday morning: Depart but maybe nice early breakfast first somewhere.

Also looking for an “authentic” seafood market or “fishing village” spot in the area, from St Augustine on south, that might have royal red shrimp and other special local seafood products. (If worse comes to worse I can always get these all the way down in Cape Canaveral).

Thanks in advance!
