Fodor's Review

After being closed to the general public for yearlong renovations, the Colonial Quarter, formerly known as the Spanish Quarter, is now an even more appealing attraction. The 2-acre living history museum gives visitors a vivid sense of life in 16th-, 17th-, and 18th-century St. Augustine. The De Mesa–Sanchez House dates from the 1740s and the other buildings—including a soldier's home, print shop, blacksmith's shop, and gunsmith—are replicas, mostly built on the original

foundations. Costumed reenactors help make the history come alive. New additions to the complex include a 35-foot watchtower from which you have a panoramic view of the city. You can also dig for replica artifacts, create a leather medallion, take part in a musket drill, watch a 16th-century ship being built, and more. A family-style show, The Colonial Crew Revue, requires a separate admission. The complex also includes two restaurants: the Taberna del Caballo and the Bull and Crown British Publick House.
