Are you planning a visit from Orlando to St. Augustine? These are two of Florida’s major cities and are both well known for different reasons.

Orlando is the Theme Park Capital of the World, being home to Walt Disney World resorts and Universal Orlando Resort, while Saint Augustine is known for its rich history and being the oldest city in the United States.

I love visiting Orlando because it’s centrally located in Florida and just an hour from the Atlantic Coast.  And just an hour and a half from St. Augustine. 

Because these two cities are so close, they’re easily put together for one road trip during your visit to Florida. And the route between them is pretty straightforward, so it’s easy enough even for travelers.

In this post, I’ll cover how to best get between these two destinations, the distance, and a few stops to make along the way.
