Dexter the Dog loves to take dog-friendly boat rides. During our trip to St. Augustine, Florida, we ran out of time and did not have a chance to board the dog-friendly Schooner Freedom nor St. Augustine Scenic Cruise, but we did enjoy the Red Train Tour!
The dog-friendly Red Train Tour, operated by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! since 1953, takes guests on an extensive and educational tour through St. Augustine. The Red Train tour is fully narrated by the conductor. Our conductor was so knowledgeable and fun to listen to and banter with.
Dexter and other well-behaved dogs are welcome on the train tour. Dexter enjoyed sitting on the train bench, smelling the air with the wind blowing through his ears. When he wasn’t looking at the Nation’s Oldest City’s architecture, he was snoozing in my lap.
When traveling to new destinations, sometimes it can be overwhelming to choose just what to do and see. This was particularly true in our case, when we were only staying for two days. One of the best parts of taking the Red Train Tour, is that as a new visitor, I was able to see the best parts of historic St. Augustine that I may never have known about. It also gave me the opportunity to pinpoint spots and attractions I want to spend more time at next time I visit St. Augustine. Yes, there needs to be a next time. 🙂
St. Augustine is full of old historic buildings such as the Oldest House, Old Jail, Spanish Memorial Hospital, Fort Menendez, Flagler College, various churches, and so much more. By riding on Ripley’s sightseeing train tour, visitors are able to get on and off at any of their 20 convenient stops. One of the best parts of your admission ticket, is that it is valid for the THREE days, and a new train comes by each stop every 15-20 minutes. Free car parking and on-demand shuttle service to and from area hotels is included.
When you are traveling to St. Augustine with your dog and are looking for a great way to see and get around “Nation’s Oldest City,” I definitely recommend The Red Train Tour. It’s an easy and enjoyable way to tour St. Augustine with your dog and not worry about parking or getting lost. If you and your canine companion are more adventurous, check out their Ghost Tour for a paranormal experience.
Before you go, make sure you check out St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors & Convention Bureau for guides, maps, things to do, and much more.
