I can’t believe there is only two guest post left for my Christmas blog post series. Although I feel sad, I am also excited to welcome a new year’s adventure. I can definitely say you don’t have to worry about your Christmas destination for 2019. You have plenty of options to choose from right? Just type Places to celebrate Christmas in the search bar and you will have the whole list with all details. Today I am introducing Jill, full-time traveling mom of 4 kiddos and a wife to a digital nomad. Jill is sharing her tips & tricks to enjoy Christmas in St Augustine
Enjoy Christmas in St Augustine by Jill from lets travel family
St. Augustine, Florida is a great city to visit during the Christmas holidays. The historic city is in the northeast of Florida on the Atlantic coast providing some beach and ocean experience to your holiday. Our full-time traveling family spent all of December in 2017 visiting St.Augustine and found ourselves enchanted by all the holiday festivities.
The streets of St. Augustine are lite up with white twinkly lights for everyone to enjoy each night from Thanksgiving until New Years. They call it the Nights of Lights. Take a walk along the waterfront and enjoy the view, or hire a horse-drawn carriage and bundle under the blanket together for an enchanting evening.
Our family chose to take the Red Train Trolley for a tour of the city. We could hop off and explore an area and then hop back on the next trolley that arrived. If you want to see the lights at night and sing Christmas carols, then the Red Train Trolley is a great option. The trolley is not only decorated with garland and lights, you also listen to Christmas carols as you travel among the city of lights.
We loved spending Christmas in St. Augustine last year as it allowed us to explore the ocean front while also being in such a festive city, all the while not having to live with snow. Since our family is originally from Minnesota, we were thrilled to have a winter without snow.
