Yes, it's that time of year again already! The holidays are quickly approaching and is a matter of days the Old City will be awash in tiny white lights as the 22nd annual Nights of Lights kicks off.
This globally recognized event, as singled out by National Geographic as one of the only 2 places in the whole USA for Best Holiday Lights; AAA as one of its “12 Favorite Places to Catch the Holiday Spirit in the USA and Canada; as well as the American Bus Association named the event one the nation’s top 100 events yet again.
The Nights of Lights begins with Light-up Night, this
year being held on Saturday Nov. 20th where all the city lights are
turned on at the same time. Everyone is invited to the Plaza de
Constitution starting at 4:00pm with the lights being turned on at
exactly 6:30pm. What a sight to see! The lights are kept on through the
season, and all the way through to the end of January, for those who
could not make it during the holidays.
Staying at one of St Augustine’s historic Inns or, St Augustine's
best bed and breakfasts, is the best way to get into the spirit of the
holidays. Each Inn is lovingly decorated for the season and actually, opens to tour Dec, 12th & 13th for the Annual Holiday Tour of Inns; Yet another example of great Christmas event here in the Ancient City.
So if it’s for the holidays, or a quiet get-away after the holidays (Local’s secrete - you will have the city to yourself) Book your room at the Inn on Charlotte today and make it a year for memory making in St Augustine Fl.
