This photo courtesy of the Schooner Freedom is a great snapshot of twilight over the city, lit up with millions of lights to celebrate the holiday season.
Grab a drink at the Tini Martini Bar or wander down St. George Street... after dark, Saint Augustine only becomes MORE magical.
Think you'd like to live here?

This year, according to the schedule on www.floridashistoriccoast.com, our annual Nights of Lights festival will begin with the city-wide illumination of millions of lights on November 21st at 6:30pm.
We love sharing the holiday spirit with our visitors, and the lights will remain lit every evening well into the month of January.
It's a tradition that's been going on for 22 years and something that locals really look forward to. Driving through the city to and from work this time of year always brings a smile to my face, and on weekends its a gorgeous area for gathering with the family and enjoying good food, good talk, and a pretty nice view--if we do say so ourselves.
This is a video link to a campaign that we support and host in Ponte Vedra to support men and women who have served in the armed forces.
Saint Augustine is a city that has known its own history of warfare, and we're still battling today--but against an enemy that is often overlooked.
Many veterans have settled here because we are so supportive of our military and we honor the sacrifice that others have made on our behalf. Active and retired military members receive discounts and benefits at many of our attractions and sites.
We also regularly host campaigns like Wounded Warriors in support of veterans with disabilities garnered from their service.
Please watch the video, support, donate, and honor the men and women who make our lives possible.
