Because January visitors can enjoy our town’s jaw-dropping light display during Nights of Lights (the event runs from November 21 through the end of January), exclusive trolley rides through our romantic streets (every Monday and Wednesday night at 7:30), … Read More

Light ’em Up: St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights Kicks Off TONIGHT

Everything about St. Augustine will change tonight at 6:30, when the mayor lights the big tree in the center of town. Dark corners of the town will be lit up with holiday cheer; locals and visitors alike will bump into each other as they gape at the town’s three million electric “stars” on long evening walks. I love … Read More

Happy Boss’s Day! Send Her to St. Augustine!

Boss’s day wasn’t a day when I first started working. If you had polled me then, I would have said that *every* day was boss’s day. In fact, it was a thing back then.

The Last Ice Cream of the Season

How is it almost October? Well, as usual, the summer here in Florida has just flown by. I know people always say it gets really hot here, but honestly, I don’t think it’s more hot than our hometown of Baltimore. Of course, we try to temper the heat as much as possible, with free margaritas … Read More

Free Museum Day in St. Augustine

For a tiny town, St. Augustine has a plethora of museums. (That’s the kind of vocabulary you use when you live in a town with a lot of museums). And on Saturday, September 26, you can visit one of our town’s museums for FREE! It’s part of the Smithsonian’s annual free museum day–a day where museums around the country … Read More

Happy Anniversary to Us!

With all of the hubbub about St. Augustine’s 450th anniversary, we totally forgot that we recently had a (much smaller) anniversary of our own! On September 1, we celebrated five years of owning the Bayfront Marin House. And when we say celebrated, we mean it. In the past five years, we have been lucky enough to meet … Read More
