Something new is happening to St. Augustine's Oldest Street, Aviles Street. During the next 45 days, Aviles Street is undergoing a face lift that will transform this quaint little street in the nation's oldest city. The new street scape will feature new brick streets, wider sidewalks for benches and outside dining, as well as streetlights. It is nice to know that the businesses will remain open during construction.
Carl Halbirt, who is the City of St. Augustine's archaeologist, has determined that Aviles Street has been a street since the late 1500's. The street is anchored by two museums, the Spanish Military Hospital on the North end and the Father O'Reilly House Museum toward the North end. While visiting St Augustine stroll into Gaufres and Goods for pierogies or purchase a painting at Aviles Street Gallery. One of our favorite shops on Aviles is Dan Holiday Leather, where he will make a pair of custom sandals for you.
We look forward to dining in the under the lights on Aviles Street and strolling home. When you vacation in Florida, Carriage Way is the way to stay for your Florida getaway.
