Nights of Lights: A Unique Perspective

Recently, I had the pleasure of sharing a romantic sunset cruise with my husband aboard My Way, the private boat charter run by TH Charters, that allowed us to view the Historic District of downtown St. Augustine.  During the months of November-January, the Nation's Oldest City is decked out in millions of tiny white lights to celebrate the holiday season.  The Nights of Lights is an annual event that brings people from all over the world, and one unique way to view these lights is from the water.  

For our family, we wanted a way to view the Nights of Lights without worrying about crowds of people or traffic jams, so we decided to book a special private charter with Captain Todd once again.  This time though, our cruise was dedicated to watching the sun set over St. Augustine, FL and seeing the illumination of delicate white lights along San Marco Ave.  The trees, local restaurants, and shops were lined with strands of lights that gave an elegant glow as people walked to and fro along the Bayfront, or rode by on the Old Town Trolley, singing Christmas carols.  Being on the water allowed us to still be a part of the event, but it was a much more quiet, intimate experience.  

Visiting St. Augustine during the holiday season is a wonderful way to create lasting memories with your family and friends.  Our vacation rental beach condos are the perfect place to be close both to Nights of Lights and to the pristine white sands of St. Augustine Beach.  Contact us today to begin your holiday getaway.
