Just because St. Augustine is old, doesn't mean that all the shopping is all about dusty antique shops and pirate T-shirt shops. Locally-owned boutiques with fashion forward clothing, design studios and galleries give a visitor plenty of options. Shopping in the old city is a must, but be sure to explore uptown, too for more cool boutiques.
Of course, if you want a fake gold pirate doubloon or a replica of the Castillo San Marcos, well, you can get that too...there are tons of fun souvenir stops on Aviles and St. George Streets, which make great gifts for the folks back home. Even the attractions themselves have great gift shops. One of our favorites is at the Fountain of Youth where you can fill up glass bottles with authentic spring water straight from the source and are labeled so friends back home know they are drinking water that might turn back the clock.
Outside of the old city are more shopping options including a huge outlet with lots of bargains on designer merchandise and shopping malls where you can find favorite local brands.
Here are some places to go if you want to get the perfect gift, something for yourself, or something that will always remind you of your visit to the Ancient City.
