Spring Travel Guide

Plan Your 2021 St. Augustine Beach Spring Break

St. Augustine is a great year-round vacation destination with great weather, historic attractions, beautiful beaches, and tons of dining and shopping. St. Augustine isn't your typical Florida spring break destination, and that's what we love about it. Unlike some other big beach areas in the state, St. Augustine remains more calm and quiet, making it the perfect place for a spring vacation with family and friends. You'll find plenty of things to do in St. Augustine, whether you're seeking a destination for relaxation or adventure. 

Spring Weather in St. Augustine

The weather in St. Augustine is near perfect during the springtime. Between March and May, the temperature hovers in the mid-70s to mid-80s during the day and cools down to the 50s and 60s at night. It's fairly warm and dry throughout winter and into the start of spring, and by May it starts to get humid again. Plus, you'll get plenty of sunshine during your stay in St. Augustine this time of the year!
