St. Augustine, Florida

4:26 PM / 3 comments

One of my favorite states is Florida. When we went there last year we were able to visit Disney world and the ten days we were there wasn't enough to explore Florida. I want to go back and and visit more places there aside from Disney world and one of the places I want to go to is St. Augustine. St. Augustine, the nation's oldest city, also holds the distinction of being one of the nation's most charming. Known as the "Ancient City," Saint Augustine is located between North East and Central East Florida and is convenient to Jacksonville, Orlando, and Daytona airports. North Florida boasts a year-round mild climate perfect for strolling Saint Augustine's delightful historic district, with its cobblestone streets, quaint cafes, bars, unique shops and bed-and-breakfast inns. Experience the beauty of an early morning that slowly comes alive with locals and tourists setting out on foot to explore significant landmarks such as Castillo de Marcos, Fort Matanzas and Lightner Museums. This time around it would be a great time to visit St. Augustine because of the Uptown Saturday Night event that is going to take place every Saturday night from October 27th to November 24th. A favorite end-of-the-month event, Uptown Saturday Night takes place from 5pm to 9pm the last Saturday of every month in the Uptown San Marco Shopping District, St. Augustine.St. Augustine shopping features some books, antiques and more one of a kind shops. Each participating shop features an open house with wine and refreshments that add to the festive night time atmosphere. The Mission of Nombre de Dios provides free parking for Uptown Saturday Night. Take your family to Uptown Saturday Night at St Augustine and enjoy the old city atmosphere the city has to offer.
