Things To Do

Pelican Point is so comfortable you may never want to leave, but in the event you do there are many great places to visit and restaurants to enjoy.

Places to Visit:

Surf side Park Beach:  This beach is located just two blocks away from Pelican Point so walking there is no problem.  If you have too much to carry to walk there is a convenient free parking lot complete with showers and bathrooms.

Vilano Beach:  This beach is located 5 minutes from Pelican Point at the Vilano Beach Town Center and is a local favorite.  For a small fee you can park your car right on the beach, so no worries about multiple trips to the parking lot to unload all your beach accessories.

Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum:  Just over 3 miles from Pelican Point is St. Augustine’s weirdest museum.  Prepare to be amazed, creeped out, and baffled by what you will find inside here. CAUTION: May be too scary for small children.

Castillo de San Marcos:  Less than 4 miles from Pelican Point is one of America’s oldest Forts.  Located right by St. Georges Street, and right on the River it is a great stop for any history buff and exciting to explore for children.

Anastasia State Park:  Just 6 miles from Pelican Point lies St. Augustine’s finest nature park.  Over 1600 acres of beach and forest give you plenty of places to explore.  If you love water sports, hit the beach, or if you are more of a wildlife enthusiast bring your camera and binoculars go tracking in the woods.
