Best of Saint Augustine 2020

Meet the Ancient City's finest

Posted

Around this time last year, we had a novel idea. What if we took our long-running Best of Jax reader poll, which covers four counties, and held a magnifying glass to St. Augustine alone? Well, the Ancient City rose to the occasion, and it has done so again for the second edition of Folio Weekly’s Best of Saint Augustine. 8,573 readers participated, casting more than 86,000 votes across our 250 categories. We’ve covered all areas of modern life, from Best Tire Store to Best Beach to Best Personal Trainer—and everything in between. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Best of Saint Augustine.
