St. Augustine's Aviles Street is the oldest street in the United States, home of some of the earliest (or very first) services such as a church, cemetery, jail, hospital, boarding houses, and school. It is also considered to be the original artist district in America, rich in both history and culture!
Aviles Street is located in the heart of Old Town and is highly recognized by its picturesque cobblestone street. Lining the street you will find historical museums, a historic well, and plenty of modern shops and galleries. Visit the General Kirby House and Hamblen-Holiday Building while exploring, the latter of which is home to the 11 Aviles Street Artist and Craftsmen Guild.
Shop in the various galleries and then grab a bite to eat at any of the myriads of cafes or restaurants in the area serving up such cuisine as Cuban, Greek, Polish, Italian, and American. Don't leave the area without getting a 'peace pie' too! If you just so happen to be visiting during the month of September you are in for an extra special treat, as this is the time for the city-wide free live music festival, the Sing Out Loud Festival.
