If you love to travel, chances are you've been to popular vacation spots like Miami, Las Vegas, and Nashville. When you're looking to expand your travel repertoire and try something new, consider heading to North Florida's historic coastline to stay in charming St. Augustine.

It may be the oldest city in the continental US - founded by the Spanish in 1565 (the natives lived there long before that) - but St. Augustine has a youthful energy that vibrates its cobbled streets.

Whether you're in your 20s and looking for a new travel experience, or you're at a stage where the mayhem of crowded nightclubs no longer appeals, St. Augustine has something for every group of travelers.

Instagram worthy backgrounds

The first thing you might notice about St. Augustine is that it has a huge number of photo op spots to show off pictures on social media.

Thanks to its centuries-old history, St. Augustine has a mixture of beautiful architectural styles. Walking through the quaint streets of the city center allows visitors to admire the colonial houses with their often colorful façades and wooden balconies. Popular Southern styles also play a role in homes with round porches painted in pristine whites. Plus, you can't miss the grandeur of the Spanish Renaissance architecture that can be seen at Flagler College, including Tiffany's stained glass windows.

And that's just in the center. Be sure to visit the beaches, the lighthouse and the Bridge of Lions. In short, you'll want to pack your best outfits and strike a pose.

Appetizing food

All those walks, photo shoots and laughter with family or friends are sure to whet your appetite. Despite the relatively small size of St. Augustine, the city is a foodie's paradise with restaurants serving a wide variety of world cuisines. However, the main attraction is Florida's home cooking, which focuses on local seafood, fresh ingredients, and Southern classics.

There is no better place to start than The Floridian, an aptly named diner in the city center. There you will find fried green tomatoes (a must), buttermilk cookies served with braised pork belly and hot honey sauce, creamy goat cheese grits with seafood and ginger and passion fruit sauce, and much more.

Meanwhile in wrestling 27 daily deliveries of freshly caught seafood are prepared with a unique twist. And don't miss the signature dessert: rum caramel-soaked donut bread pudding, whipped cream espresso and cinnamon streusel.

A touch of adventure

While walking around St. Augustine is fun enough, there are also plenty of ways to enhance the adventure factor with outdoor fun. Although there are several companies in the area that offer water activities, St. Augustine Eco Tours makes sure its guests leave with great photos and a better understanding of local history and wildlife.

Offering boat, sail and kayak tours with an experienced guide, a trip with St. Augustine Eco Tours is your best bet for watching the two beloved dolphins that live in the waters surrounding the city. The guide will explain the behavior of dolphins, the life of birds and much more. While there is no 100% guarantee of seeing dolphins, these experiences do not disappoint in any way.

If eating all that fresh seafood has inspired you to catch your own fish, St. Augustine is also the perfect fishing spot. Whether you're looking for a relaxing day of fishing on calm coastal waters or you're looking for an adventure on the high seas with deep sea fishing, you can try it all with Sea Love Charters. To complete your experience and show off all the fish you've caught, head to Kingfish Grillwhere your catch will be cooked in different ways.

Rest and relaxation

St. Augustine is also an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. Plus, you couldn't come to the Sunshine State without visiting the beach, so be sure to head to St. Augustine Beach. In addition to the sand and the sea, this beach - one of the most popular in the area - offers restaurants and a coastal park with a fishing pier, a pavilion, a water park and sand volleyball courts. For an experience that takes you out of the city and into nature, head to the beach at Anastasia State Park, where you can also explore the sand dunes on the nature trail and spot the area's many birdlife.

Just the right nightlife
