Why You Should Spend Winter in St. Augustine
One of the most common questions that we get is, “when is the best time to visit St. Augustine?” The answer is always, “It depends!” If you dream of spending your time on the beach or basking in the warm weather, winter probably isn’t the best choice for you. However, if you prefer a quiet, less crowded vacation experience, it is the ideal time.
Celebrate the Ho-Ho-Holidays With the Nights of Lights Festival
One of the most famous annual events in St. Augustine is the Nights of Lights Festival. This month-long light display is what makes our city one of the top 10 places in the world to see holiday lights, according to National Geographic. Each year after Thanksgiving, St. Augustine sparkles with over three million brilliant twinkling lights. The Nation’s Oldest City took the Spanish tradition of lighting a candle in your window during the holiday season and expanded on it. Today, guests are treated to a magical experience that they’ll never forget! Who needs snow when you have softly glowing white bulbs lining the streets and aborning the buildings. The Nights of Lights Festival typically lasts until early January and is considered by locals to be an essential part of getting into the Christmas spirit!
