St. Augustine, Florida

It is a HUGE hippy hangout town. Rain or shine, you can always go down to St. George Street and find street musicians, vendors, and tons of cool kids just hanging. There are drum circles at the fort every week. Also, tons of hippy stores, like Gyspy's Moonrose (they have the best jewlery!) and Dreamstreet, a book store that has couches and stuff to chill on. And everybody there is friendly, you can just go up and talk to random people... some of them turn out to be really interesting.

I have a friend near Melbourne Fl, trying to start up community gardens around the county, with goals of spreading country wide, giving all like minded people a safe place, where you work to live instead of living to work, travelers can stop and camp and enjoy good vibes as well as help garden all edible food which they can partake and all excess food would go towards the homeless in the community. trying to see how many supporters I can get to help my friend "Wind" who already has two different locations up and running on his own... more to follow...

I agree with the previous post. I am a native to St. Auggie. As I lived there my species became rare. People just couldnt believe a native existed. The old fishing town of the area has been destroyed by developers. I left a year ago because I couldnt deal with the loads of people and developers and how the slow way of life changed. I went to Vermont, it was too expensive but I had a baby, now I am in GA. I am just lost, wishing home was the same. Sucks to be me, huh

I have always loved St. Augustine. I used to spend every summer there growing up because my Grandparents rertired near the beach there. I only visit there maybe once a year now but if you've never wandered around St. Augustine than you must add it to your to-do-list.

This town is changing. Its becoming more and more like the rest of Florida. More and more people are discovering its charm and are ruining the old town. Becoming more yuppie and trendy. Beach area is becoming too pricey. Its still a nice place, but that hippy haven label is probably dying down here.

Still have a drum circle every thursday night at the fort on san marco avenue. Beautiful beaches, goregous weather. Lots of heads hidden all over st. aug. reggae sunday is allways phat on the beach durring the summer. rainbow gathering regional is only a one and a half hour drive from st. augustine and takes place in febuary. overall st. aug is a beautiful place to relax and livley up yourself. if any of you kids/amily ever need a place to kick it while in st. augustine, give me a heads up. no need to sleep in the cold and hungry. hugs and nugs -daisy zionschild@meowmail.com

Hi, if anyone happens to know anyone who was part of any communes in the seventies that goes by the name of Jacqueline Hiebert-Beuregarde-Christensen (perhaps also add Allan) please let me know My friend David is looking for her. She married him in Thunder Bay Ontario, Canada and he wishes to annul the marriage so he can marry someone else legally. Thanks
