Two weeks ago, Matt and I headed south to Florida for a weekend getaway in St. Augustine. One of our friends was getting married there, so we figured it would be a good mini babymoon. I’ve been coming to St. Augustine for school trips or with my family since I was a kid, but hadn’t been back in three or four years. The beaches are beautiful, the downtown is cute and there are lots of things to do. We decided to stay at the adorable and cozy At Journey’s End Bed & Breakfast. If you’ve never tried out a bed and breakfast, I highly recommend giving one a try. There’s something about staying in a cute old home and having an incredible breakfast prepared for you in the morning. I’m a big fan! Also, my favorite part of this weekend getaway was that we got to see my parents and brother for the afternoon on one of the days we were in St. Augustine. Living away from family is hard sometimes, so these times we get to see each other are all the more special.
Where to stay: At Journey’s End Bed & Breakfast (highly recommend for the breakfast and kind hosts…and COMFIEST beds ever) or the Casa Monica Hotel (for a fancier, more expensive stay with a great pool).
What to do: Tour or visit Flagler College, Explore the Lightner Museum, shop in the Old Town on St. George Street especially the Red Pineapple, take a trolley tour, go to the beach, explore the fort Castillo de San Marcos, visit St. Augustine Lighthouse and wine taste at San Sebastian Winery.
Where to eat: Columbia Restaurant (for a nice dinner and yummy sangria), The Floridian (great lunch or dinner spot with southern food and some healthy options), Dolce Cafe (for a quick bite and yummy ice cream).
