America's Best College Town


St. Augustine, home of Flagler College, was recently ranked No. 7 in Travel + Leisure magazine’s list of best college towns in America.

“Thanks to its oldest-city-in-the-country claim to fame—not to mention 43 miles of beaches—this coastal town has long been a favorite among tourists,” said the city’s listing. “But it’s the mix of the old and the new that makes St. Augustine so interesting.”

“This is a huge honor for St. Augustine and Flagler College to be considered one of the top 10 best college towns in America, especially as we continue to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the former Hotel Ponce de Leon,” said Flagler College President William T. Abare, Jr., Ed.D. “We’re proud to be such an important part of the Nation’s Oldest City.”

First on this year’s list was Burlington, Vt., home of the University of Vermont. All cities on the list were voted upon by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.
