Flagler College and St. Augustine emerged with the likes of the University of Colorado and Boulder, Colo., when Travel+Leisure magazine issued its America’s best college towns list in December.

The magazine asked readers to nominate favorite towns as part of its America’s Favorite Towns survey, which included the best college towns list. St. Augustine ranked No. 7 behind favorites like Burlington, Vt.; Asheville, N.C.; and Williamsburg, Va.

So what makes the Nation’s Oldest City and Flagler one of the best college towns? Photographer and alumnus Zach Thomas, ’00, set out to try and capture it in this photo essay.
