Spend Valentine’s Day in St. Augustine Florida

Spend Valentine’s Day in St. Augustine Florida

When I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of romance.  If you are looking to plan something truly romantic this Valentine’s Day, plan your special night with and stay at one of our ocean front condos, in St. Augustine, one of the country’s oldest cities.  Our city’s history, fantastic restaurants, carriage rode tours, wine tastings, and night life will give you plenty of ideas.

There are several places that you could enjoy a nice dinner or more casual dinner in St. Augustine, Florida.  A few you could look into are: The Purple Olive, La Cocina Restaurant, Aviles Restaurant & Lounge, Le Pavillion, Old City House, Casa Monica, Café Alcazar, Catch 27, Michael’s Tasting Room, among others to choose from.

If you would like to do something a little more private, how about a romantic picnic? If you’re looking for a beautiful spot to picnic and watch the sunset, we’ve got a place for you. If you drive out on Vilano beach and round the corner to your right, you will have a perfect view of downtown and a magnificent sunset…Porpoise Point.  It’s a very romantic spot and you’re sure to see a few dolphins there too. 

After dinner, treat your Valentine to a carriage ride.  Relax and enjoy over 440 years of history thru the tree lined brick streets.  Guides at Country Carriages will provide details from the first Spanish settlement to current day.  You can also request a quiet romantic ride as well.

Take a carriage ride to our Love Tree.  I guess at this point you might be asking yourself, what is a Love tree? It’s two trees twisted tightly together and entwined forever. In St. Augustine, the love trees are usually a Palm tree and a mighty Oak. Legend claims that if you kiss underneath the love tree, you will be forever entwined. Other love trees can be found at the corner of Dumas & St. Francis, and the corner of Cordova & Orange Street. I say kiss under all of them.

If you have a sweet tooth, try a chocolate tour, with St. Augustine’s “Original Chocolate Tour” led by Whetstone Chocolatiers, where you will be introduced to the history and making of chocolate and the Whetstone story. Enjoy at 4-tiered tasting that distinguishes the characteristics of our dark, milk and white chocolate, cocoa nibs and more. Experience freshly made chocolates and confections while you tour their factory. This tour is for the chocoholic with a discriminating palate and is a decadently delicious experience!  

Once you have indulged yourself in St. Augustine’s finest, head back to your beach front condo and relax or take a romantic stroll on our beautiful beaches.
