    Travel Reporter Carrie McLaren discovers the St. Augustine’s Lighthouse, one of the oldest lighthouses in America.

    Carrie McLaren: This place is really special. It's really neat to drive across the bridge alliance as you are coming into St. Augustine and you see that Lighthouse and it's fantastic to think that it's a really working Lighthouse. Brendan Burke: We are the nation's oldest port and that really kind of says at all. We have for almost 450 years of a continued merit time on existence here. Everything that came to this town up until about 100 years ago came by ship. We came by ship our staff, our stories, everything. [Video]Rick Cain: When it's hard to feeling the words, it's hard to articulate, but it reaches a part of the inner person and speaks to them that few other structures do and it's really remarkable when and you think it is simply just a brick tower with an iron lantern on the top. Its just a unique place that opens people eye.

    Carrie McLaren: The people at the Lighthouse here are really preserving histories. So generations after me and my kids, and their kids, and their kids are going to be able to see the things that we also saw today.
