Vilano is a year-round seaside community with many fun activities. Over 20 years ago, a new bridge from the mainland was opened, diverting traffic away from the main part of town. The community banded together, re-purposing the east end of the old drawbridge to create a wide fishing pier, and revitalizing the town while making it pedestrian friendly. The Vilano Town Center district now bustles with restaurants, shops, lodging, a large supermarket, a beach pavilion, boardwalk over the salt water marsh, and art deco moderne styling. Several restaurants offer al fresco dining along the Intracoastal Waterway, and you can enjoy fun runs and 1st Saturday sunset celebrations.
Follow A1A North out of downtown St. Augustine to reach Vilano.
