LB and I headed to St. Augustine yesterday afternoon in hope of seeing the city lit up with holiday lights later that evening. As I’ve mentioned time and time again, St. Augustine is a favorite place I frequently visit. Beginning November 18th and continuing through January 31st it is an especially lovely place to visit.
The 24th Annual
dazzles the city of St. Augustine as approximately three million lights adorn the Plaza de la Constitucion and other areas of the historic district.
However, until the sun goes down, it is nice to find something to do to pass the time.
Did someone say SHOPPING?
If I have already passed the St. Augustine Premium Outlet, the shops on Saint George Street are my next choice. There aren’t as many stores to chose from, but H.W. Davis Clothing and Shoes never disappoints. Recently a few other shops have become worth exploring as well.
On this particular trip, there was less shopping, and more sightseeing. I discovered a couple of buildings under construction in the Saint George street vicinity that are likely new restaurants or shops coming to the area. In addition, I discovered a few places that may not be new, but are new to me. For example the
Colonial Oaks Music Park
a rustic performance and event venue complete with a stage and picnic tables. There is an oak, as the name suggests, in the center of the park. Its branches are spread over the picnic tables offering shade in the summer and a place to hang lanterns and lights.
Obviously there is no one on stage, but it looks to be a nice place to relax and enjoy a band or a show. I’m sure LB and I will be back.
Once the sun set, it was time to check out the holiday display.
Nights of Lights is a great opportunity to grab a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy the dazzling display with someone you love.
Thank you for the holiday cheer LB!
Thank you for taking time out of your day to stop by my blog.
