Check out Washington Oaks Gardens State Park

Just south of St. Augustine, Washington Oaks Gardens State Park is a gem. With a rocky coast line perfect for catching little tidal critters to gardens and citrus groves, the 452-acre park was once owned by a descendent of President Washington. It is worth a day trip to Palm Coast to explore!
