Known as Florida's first city, St. Augustine features history around every corner. But during the holiday season, St. Augustine features lights around every corner!

Running until February 2, 2020, St. Augustine is hosting its annual Night of Lights festival. More than three million lights adorn the downtown historic district during the display. To add to the fun, shops stay open late and tours by train, trolley, foot, or horse and carriage are available.

This one-of-a-kind celebration features hundreds of vintage decorations, designed to suit the historical period. General admission is a lower price, but we recommend opting for the guided tour that's filled with facts!

In the town center is one of Florida's few synthetic ice rinks, with special concerts taking place on the surrounding square. Plus, you'll get to see carolers, carriage rides, and "snowfall" on the hour every night until December 31.
