Have you been thinking of visiting St. Augustine, FL?
It’s an enchanting place. Filled with history, good eats and tons of tours.
Here are a few tids and bits I’ve been meaning to share. I hope it’s helpful.
1. Purchase a 1 or 2 day tour with the Old Town Trolley Tours company and you’ll get a free shuttle into the city from your hotel.
The shuttle is an air conditioned bus! This is awesome considering how hot it can be even in early spring. This was a great way to get into the city without having to drive and look and pay for parking. They picked us up right at the hotel entrance and dropped us off right in the heart of the city where we proceeded to jump on the trolley pictured below. After we road the trolley around town we caught the shuttle back to our hotel to rest and freshen up.
It’s not a stretch for me to say that I love lighthouses.
Don’t even ask me why because I don’t have a concrete answer. I just know that I love them. Maybe it’s the hope they stand for. Maybe it’s the way they are designed to stand high above the rest of us and shine their light into the dark. Maybe it’s just the allure of times gone by that make them appear so romantic. Or maybe it’s that they are simply beautiful. Regardless I love lighthouses.
I have made it a goal to visit all of the land lighthouses in the state of Florida within the next 12 months. I have already visited two of them. Here are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.
I hope you like them as much as I do.
Recently I spent the weekend with a couple of my favorite gals celebrating 10 years of sisterhood. We chose St. Augustine for our quiet and relaxing weekend. In this post I will share a few of the things I loved.
Things I Loved
I bet you had no idea that St. Augustine could easily be considered a college town. Trust me I didn’t even know there was a college there. Flagler College to be exact. The coolest part is that the school was originally a hotel. It’s quite beautiful. Here’s a picture of the entrance with Mr. Flagler himself located on King St. between Sevilla St. and Cordova St.
