Ripley's Red Train Tours

Sometimes when you visit a new place, it’s difficult to know all the fun and interesting things there are to do, and you either get overwhelmed by trying to visit them all or you just give up and miss out on tourist attractions that could have been the highlight of your entire trip. When you visit St. Augustine, however, that isn’t something you really have to worry about, thanks to Ripley’s Red Train Tours, in operation since 1953. We think they have probably worked out the kinks by now, don’t you? For one low price, you can climb aboard the distinctive red train and visit over 20 of our fair city’s most popular tourist attractions. Just think about it—you can sit back and let someone else do all the driving while you just relax and enjoy the city!

The Sites

St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States, and as such, there are many old buildings that people like to visit—buildings that are located at various locations throughout the city, but you don’t have to let that stop you. Ripley’s Red Train Tours stops at The Old Senator, The Old Jail, AND the Oldest House; get on the train from any of the stops and get off where ever you want—a new Ripley train will magically appear every 15 or 20 minutes, no matter where you are along the tour!

Military buffs will enjoy touring the Spanish Memorial Hospital and Fort Menendez. Ripley’s Red Train has stops at both these places. For those of you who enjoy the ambience and atmosphere of old churches, you have two choices: The Flagler Memorial Presbyterian Church and the Mission Nombre de Dios. The red train tours cover most of the hot spots in St. Augustine, including the Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum—we kid you not!

The Details

Running every day of the year except Christmas, there really is no better way of experiencing our beautiful city. Offering narrated tours that last close to an hour and a half, and open air tours that stop at 22 historic locations throughout the city, including the famed Fountain of Youth, the tours start at 8:30 in the morning and continue until 5:00 PM. Three day passes are available for the low price of $23.99 for adults and $9.99 for kids, so there is no need to rush your way through the historic sites you visit. You can take your time and really get to feel like you have learned all there is to learn about our nation’s oldest city.
