Tell me about St Augustine, historical sites

I should have done this before I left Buffalo

I'm in St Augustine now, what all should I see tomorrow and friday morning? I'm going to a fort for sure.

There is a little bar across the street from the fort that has a outside patio upstairs (brown building, can't remember the name of it though). Sit there and drink. Or this site might help:

There is a bunch shopping right downtown, ripley's museum, the lighthouse etc. If the old forts are what you are looking for, there is another one about 15 miles south of st aug, ft matanzas. Much smaller than the castillo, but still cool to see if you have a car.

This is probably the best place to start. But there's tons of stuff out there, obviously. Let me know when you're done with this and want more. Also, feel free to post your impressions!

Take one of the tour trolleys, they are cheap and a great way to get around and learn some history. We were just there last month, it was our second time there. It's a very relaxing place.
