St. Augustine Nights of Lights

For New Year’s Eve we travelled to St. Augustine, Florida to see the Nights of Lights. St. Augustine, founded by the Spanish in 1565, is a small city in Northeast Florida. It served as the capital of the Spanish colony for nearly two-hundred years and still today shows its four-hundred year history beautifully. It was even a central location of the Civil Rights Movement, where supporters conducted marches, sit-ins and peaceful protests. This rich history has made St. Augustine a major tourist attraction.

While there, we attended the New Year’s Beach Blast Off and their 20th “Nights of Lights” celebration. The beach party was a bit busy for us with the chili cook-off, ice sculpting, live music and kids zone, so we spent most of our evening watching the lights instead.

Selected by National Geographic in 2011 & 2012 as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world, St. Augustine Nights of Lights feature millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city. It is truly beautiful and much more willie’s speed.

After viewing some photos online of the lights display it appeared that many were not turned on for New Year’s Eve 🙁 Oh well. We’ll have to go back next year and try again!
