Experience Nights of Lights in Elegance

By: Kara Chalmers


St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights is one of the best ways to get into the Christmas spirit in Florida. Here's a great way to experience it:

Stay two nights (Sunday through Thursday) at one of the five Inns of Elegance and get an exclusive, private ride on the St. Augustine Sightseeing Train as well as a complimentary beverage at the Tini Martini Bar at the Casablanca Inn, before or after your train tour.

The Inns of Elegance are a collection of romantic bed-and-breakfast inns. They are the Casablanca Inn, Inn on Charlotte, Westcott House, Bayfront Marin House and St. Francis Inn. The promotion is valid from Nov. 28 through Jan. 27. To reserve, or for more information, call 877-616-6444 or visit www.innsofelegance.com.

Nights of Lights, which this year runs from Saturday through the month of January, is how St. Augustine celebrates the holidays. More than two million tiny white lights illuminate the city – its historic structures, narrow brick streets and trees. There are also tons of associated events, like holiday concerts, art walks, a lighted boat parade, ice skating and candle-light tours of the Villa Zorayda Museum.

“Light-Up Night,” when there'll be a countdown and a "flipping of the switch" in the historic Plaza de la Constitución to begin Nights of Lights, is Saturday. Festivities start at 4 p.m. with holiday performances and Light-Up begins at 6:30 p.m. Also on Saturday night is a Nights of Lights River Cruise for adults only.
