We are planning a weekend in St. Augustine and, while I like nice inns, I don't really want to pay $250 a night (or more) for a room for Saturday night. We will arrive around noon on Saturday. walk around town in the afternoon and see some highlights and then go out to dinner. On Sunday, we will check out one or two more sights, possibly the Lightner Museum, and then head home. One night needed in a hotel or inn.
Question: if I stay outside the historic district, is it easy to just drive into the historic district and park? Or is there a shuttle into town from some hotels? Or should I just bite the bullet and pay more to be downtown in a picturesque B&B?
