History, Mystery, and Romance in St Augustine
Perhaps it is because of (versus despite) St. Augustine’s oft-tragic history that fills her air with passion. Passion for everything. If you have travelled Europe, you will know what I mean when I say that history and mystery too here are in the air. An after-dinner stroll will demonstrate this perfectly. The sultry night air, cobblestone under foot, music and laughter about, your way illuminated by the softly-lit homes and mansions tucked away on nearly every street. With every step you take together, you know that thousands and thousands of couples have stepped together before you, for the last nearly-450 years. Spanish soldiers, British soldiers, Seminole warriors have stepped before you. Slaves have stepped before you; civil rights demonstrators have marched before you. Happy couples, troubled couples. Lonely souls. St. Augustine is just one big energy ball. At the right time of year, the scent of jasmine will fill your senses and make you silly, silly with love--love for your sweetheart, love for St. Augustine, love for life. What could be more romantic! We he hope you'll find all the perfectly romantic things to do in St Augustine FL, and here are a couple of ideas to get you started.
Vintage Dress-up Fun
There is no shortage of St Augustine attractions offering you a step back in time, but The Way We Were at 86 Charlotte Street really does! Vintage fashion describes aged clothes from the 1920s to the 1980s that are back in style. Kim Myers, owner of St. Augustine’s premiere vintage clothing shop, has excellent vintage taste and makes sure there is something for everyone in her physical shop and her online store. Even the guys love this store. What a great date – playing dress up for a bit and buying (or renting) a great accessory or outfits for you both to wear out for your romantic evening in St Augustine! You can rent an outfit from the rental selection for one to five nights. Even if you would normally be a little embarrassed to wear vintage clothing, no one knows you in St. Augustine – it’s the perfect time to bust out your bad selves 2getha!
A Kiss, A Cuddle, and A Carriage Ride
St. Augustine is famous for its horse-drawn carriage rides. You can go at this one of two ways – as a historic and educational way during which your guide will most assuredly inundate you with wonderful stories of St. Augustine’s past, or you could just tell your driver that you wish to make the trek in solitude while you cuddle with your sweetheart, your heart beating in time with each clip-clop of the horse’s feet, your head swimming with love! If you stay at this romantic bed and breakfast, we can add your ticket to your bill and arrange for pick-up at the Inn and drop-off wherever you like (as long as it is on the established route). The ride takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Coincidentally, Country Carriages also offers horse-back riding on Vilano Beach for which reservations are required.
Creative Coupling Date Night
This great creative coupling date night activity is a limited-space / by-reservations-only and books fast, so make that reservation before you do anything else! With step-by-step instruction from local artist Jackie Rock, owner of Rock Art Studio Inc., you both will paint a different half of a pre-selected (by you) art work using acrylics; the two halves will create the whole when placed side by side, just like in your relationship. The class is $45 per couple and includes all supplies. It is a BYOB (bring your own beverage) and munchies (you don't have to share with anyone else) affair. This romantic bed and breakfast offers a gourmet picnic basket that you can take with. To reserve your creative coupling date night spot now, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
