There’s a whole lot of Florida to explore, and luckily for Ridge Landing residents, our central location in the sunshine state makes flying out to any destination in the state a cinch. All kinds of tropical getaways and historical destinations await you and your aircraft to touchdown. One of the locally loved places to sightsee in Florida is the historically charming city of St. Augustine.
Playing an integral part in America’s history, St. Augustine was the place Juan Ponce de Leon of Spain first landed when he discovered Florida in 1513, making this city the oldest in America.
