North City/Uptown - The Peaceful Part of Downtown
Uptown begins just North of Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum.
You probably saw this building on TV - this is where they have filmed the Intro to the series and several episodes. Between the Ripleys and the actual MLS Boundary of North City (MLS Area 3) are three significant St. Augustine attractions: the Mission of Nombre De Dios (where the first mass was held in the United States and a great walking area), the Old Jail and the Fountain of Youth - a privately owned park with great archeological significance.
. You can taste the water from and Artesian well here^
If you like ecclectic shopping there are quaint stores along San Marco to patronize and lots of services provided along San Marco Avenue and US 1. Some of the local favorite eateries include Fusion Point (for Sushi), El Potro (Mexican) and a great newcomer for breakfast and lunch - Jaybird's (at US 1 and SR 16). Walgreen's and CVS Pharmacies are at this intersection and there is a full blown Winn-Dixie grocery store at the City Gates (includes Larry's Giant Subs, Wendy's and more).
