Look up “Things to Do” in St. Augustine and the thousands of results can be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, Amy Angelilli is a willing guide. Her new book, “100 Things to Do in St. Augustine Before You Die,” catalogs the most interesting and obscure activities not to be missed in the Nation’s Oldest City. Her curated list of attractions, restaurants, activities and recreation will turn anyone’s visit to St. Augustine into a memorable experience.

The 100 Things to Do series, published by Reedy Press, provides tourists with a list of local-approved experiences in American cities and towns. “100 Things to Do in St. Augustine Before You Die,” enlists Angelilli, improv theater instructor, owner of The Adventure Project and Third Space Improv, and enthusiastic traveler, to uncover the best food, drink, music, entertainment, sports, recreation, museums, shopping and more.

“If doing improv has taught me anything, it’s to live in the moment and say yes to the adventure,” said Angelilli. “As much as I would love to save all of St. Augustine’s secret spots for myself, that’s just not me. I want everyone to know how amazing this tiny town is — the people, the places, the history and architecture — everything. Come and use this book as your guide for a fun and fabulous adventure.”
