Local Seasons:

 

Winter tends to be the busiest time of year in this historic Florida coastal city.  However, due to it’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and historic significance, virtually anytime of year can be wonderful for visitors.  In the winter, with the daytime temperatures reaching the high 60’s F to the low 70’s F, it’s a perfect time to explore the many historic sites throughout the city.  Spring brings warmer temperatures and additional sunshine making it a good time for a nice meal followed by a walk through any of the areas dotted with historical buildings.  Summer can be warm with the temperature often exceeding 90 F, but with a warm breeze coming off the Atlantic, it is quite comfortable.  Fall is ideal for taking advantage of the numerous events taking place, or just relaxing with a good book.  Whatever the season and whatever the reason for a visit, historic St. Augustine is waiting with a warm breeze.
