Day Trippin’

Now that the weather has cooled off you might be thinking of taking a day trip, some place close enough to reach in a couple of hours.  St. Augustine is the perfect destination for a sunny Saturday.

The historic district offers shopping, people watching and plenty of dining possibilities.


There is nothing more fun for a family than a trip to the Colonial Quarter.

Take a tour and let one of the very knowledgable guides show what life was like when the Spanish first settled in our nation’s oldest city.  See one of the historic shows presented daily or children might enjoy a bit of archealogical digging.

Dine on fabulous tapas at La Taverna del Caballo….the food is fantastic and completely “kid” friendly.

And more delicious tapas with a glass of sangria perhaps?


You can arrive mid-morning, tour the area, eat a fabulous lunch al fresco and be home in time to relax in front of a cozy fire!   The perfect way to get away for the day.
