This shrine to pillaging and plundering greets guests with interactive displays of more than 800 items, including rare and authentic pirate artifacts dating back more than 300 years. Visitors can stop in and see artifacts such as Captain Thomas Tew's 17th-century treasure chest, which the museum boasts is the only authentic pirate treasure chest in the world, or view one of the only two authentic Jolly Roger flags left in existence. Aspiring buccaneers can view the journal of Captain Kidd's final voyage aboard the HMS Advice, a diary kept by Lieutenant Thomas Longish documenting the ship's log and the precise number of extraterrestrials spotted at sea. Pat Croce, a physical therapist, entrepreneur, and former president of the Philadelphia 76ers, opened the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum to share his passion for pirates with the public. This buccaneer's trove of treasures stands within easy walking distance to the historic homes and shopping along St. George Street.

Though they're certainly adept at standing still, buildings and monuments present their own set of challenges for people trying to take pictures of them. To surmount these complications, the professional photographers at ShutterGuide set out on two-hour walking tours, teaching groups how to best frame the landmarks on their route. For each site, they demonstrate a different camera technique that suits the landscape, such as adjusting the composition or keeping photo-bombing statues out of the frame. Guests can capture snapshots with nearly any type of lens—even the one on their smartphone.

The tours cover photography topics from lighting to metering and depth of field, but they're also a lesson in history. During the walk, guides dole out trivia on the city's past. They take a maximum of eight people in every group and accommodate aspiring shutterbugs of all skill levels.
