The Bridge of Lions, which connects St. Augustine to Anastasia Island; the bridge is a drawbridge which opens to let taller vessels through.

 

St. Augustine is famous for it’s annual light celebration, where the downtown is lit with 2 million lights.

I loved seeing the displays, but mostly I enjoyed the festive atmosphere and perfect weather walking the downtown streets.

We went downtown twice in the evening, once with the kids (we stayed in the cars) and once after the littles were in bed. I loved exploring the streets at night. Everything was so magical.

December really is an ideal time to visit, particularly if you are from a colder climate. The respite from cold and lack of typical heat and humidity made for a perfect environment to explore.
