PARK It Today!!

July is National Parks and Recreation month ( for more information, visit

Saint Augustine, as usual, is celebrating in style, with free admission to all of our parks today!

That includes our town’s very cool forts–the Castillo de San Marco and Fort Matanzas¬†(the latter is pictured above). Sure, these huge stone structures¬†were originally built to keep people out of the nation’s oldest city, but today they’re dropping down the drawbridge and welcoming all to enjoy.

So pack up a peanut butter sandwich and a bottle of wine, and let’s plan a picnic lunch–there’s a breeze off the water and the sun is absolutely gorgeous.

See you at the parks!!
