By far one of the most popular holiday events in the nation’s oldest city, the St Augustine Bed and Breakfast Holiday Tour – otherwise known as “Christmas in Toyland” is sure to sell out quick again this year!
On its 22nd year, the tour is one of the most enjoyable St. Augustine adventures that really gets one in the holiday spirit!
Always the second weekend in December (Saturday and Sunday), guests are able to tour half of St. Augustine’s best-holiday-decorated inns each day from 1pm-5pm. As if that wasn’t fun in itself, each inn is paired with a local restaurant who will serve up a taste of their favorite dishes at each of the inns as the guests depart!
Your ticket will include an extensive tour booklet with a map of each day’s Inns on tour and much more! You can begin at any Inn and go in any order you choose.
There will be a FREE tour shuttle trolley, courtesy of Old Town Trolley. The trolley will stop at several locations along the tour route, however some walking is still required.
Please see “Frequently Asked Questions” as well as ticket buying info on the official
St Augustine Bed and Breakfast Tour Website for more information.
As always, partial proceeds of the tour benefit a select St. Augustine Charity each year.
The Tour’s charity partner for the 2015 event is the local Betty Griffin House, which provides shelter and counseling for victims of domestic violence.
Partial proceeds of the 2014 tour were donated to Fresh Starts in Culinary Arts, which is operated by First Coast Technical College, who train qualified homeless participants leading to food service certification. The aim is to help graduates find jobs in the food service/hospitality industry, or to transfer into FCTC’s culinary arts program.
