Have a Romantic Valentine's Day in the Nation's Oldest City
The charm of St. Augustine is due to many reasons, including its smaller size, seaside location, and historical significance. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, many couples are already preparing special gifts and reserving a time slot at a favorite restaurant. There are so many places to go and attractions to see during a visit to Saint Augustine, but when you want to take the romance factor up a notch, here’s what we recommend.
Listen to the ocean waves while walking on the beach.
Staying in an oceanside condo has its advantages, and one of them is easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. Pristine white beaches await travelers and with private beach walkovers in most of our condominium communities, you’ll soon be holding hands while strolling over the sand.
Sip on a handcrafted cocktail while staring into each other’s eyes.
With dozens of bars in the Historic District alone, there are so many places to enjoy a zesty martini or a classic old fashioned. Prefer beer or wine? Make sure to stop by one of the locally owned breweries for a taste of homemade ale you won’t find anywhere else.
Wrap your arms around each other while dancing the night away.
It takes two to tango, so grab your dance partner and head to one of the many establishments where live entertainment is offered. Dance outside under the lights at The Cellar Upstairs, part of the popular San Sebastian Winery, or get down to the latest beats that are dished out at Dos Gatos.
Be chauffeured around the City in a private horse drawn carriage.
Along the Bayfront, private tour companies offer guided or romantic horse drawn carriage rides throughout the Historic District. For an intimate experience, ask for the romantic tour so you and your significant other can sit comfortably under the moonlight without any interruptions.
Ready to pop the question? St. Augustine is the perfect place to propose.
Climb to the top of the Lighthouse and while you’re taking in the panoramic view of Saint Augustine and the surrounding beaches, get down on one knee so your focus is obvious. Take a sunset cruise on the Schooner Freedom and after catching a glimpse of wild dolphins, keep the excitement going with the burning question on your lips.
