The Lighthouse Museum is an amazing place to visit for maritime history and they have recently added a new exhibit that chronicles the shrimping history and shrimp boat building of St Augustine. Although the modern shrimping industry began in Fernandina Beach, St. Augustine was close to follow. Many of the exhibit items were donated by the longtime shrimp industry families of the area.
There are so many things to see and do when you travel to Florida you really should take your time and stay. Carriage Way Bed and Breakfast is the way to stay.
