North City

Find fun shops, restaurants, hotels as well as water access in North City.

The old neighborhood of North City, features neighborhoods with old oaks and historic homes, a yacht harbor, a boat ramp, and many locally-owned restaurants and shops. North City is a tad too far from Historic Downtown for a comfortable stroll, but most businesses offer off-street parking.

Those who enjoy the water will note that one of St. Augustine’s public boat ramps is located along the Vilano Causeway, just before the bridge. Sailors can take a sailing class, rent a boat, or enjoy a crewed charter from St. Augustine Sailing, located at Camachee Cove Yacht Harbor. Visitors who simply want to take a tour on the water to look for dolphins or enjoy the sunset will find Florida Water Tours at Camachee, as well.

Much of the northeastern section is a marsh with the eastern boundary being the Tolomato River, best explored by boat, kayak, or paddleboard. There are also thriving businesses along the northern section of San Marco, from thrift shops and resale shops to outstanding bakeries, a local favorite coffee shop, and a number of cozy and moderately-priced places to stay.

Also in the region is Fort Mose Historic State Park, a former Free-African settlement. Fort Mose is only 3.5 miles from the Plaza de la Constitución in St. Augustine’s Historic Downtown.
