The city of St. Augustine is an unmatched resource for colonial history -- it's the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the U.S., at 450 years old -- and also a playground of family-friendly kitsch (themed museums and restaurants abound). The Jaybird's Inn is an affordable option just north of downtown that excels at customer service. The low-rise motel profile conceals rooms that are clean and contemporary. Dark wood floors, seafoam accent colors and marble counters cover rooms that provide free Wi-Fi, a sleeper sofa and a mini fridge. There's free breakfast in the mornings, and guests can borrow the inn's fleet of bicycles at no charge.
The immediate neighborhood is quieter and more residential, but St. Augustine's main tourist sights are within three miles. Right behind the inn is one of the stops on the Red Train tour route. Trolleys stop here every 20 minutes or so during the day and loop around the city's most famous sights, including the original Ripley's museum of oddities, the Old Jail and the City Marina. About two miles down the road is the Spanish Colonial Quarter, which recreates landmarks and streetscapes from St. Augustine's first four centuries of settlement. There's also the spot where Ponce de Leon came ashore and a site commemorating the Fountain of Youth.
