The St Augustine Historic Inns present their 24th Annual Bed and Breakfast Holiday Tour featuring this year’s theme “Coastal Christmas.” Due to the ever increasing popularity of the beloved annual tradition, this year, for the first time, patrons are offered a variety of attendance options.
The 3-Day Extended Weekend Tour showcases 23 inns over the weekend plus 11 bonus properties on Monday including Ximenez Fatio House Museum, Peña-Peck House Museum, Father Miguel O’Reilly House Museum, Villa Zorayda Museum, Oldest House Museum, Art Association Gallery, Lincolnville Museum, Lightner Museum, Colonial Oak Music Park, Government House and Trinity Episcopal Church. The new 3-Day Tour-Lite showcases the same 11 bonus properties on Monday and 17 inns on Tuesday and Wednesday. There is also a 5-day Relaxed Tour for those who want to have access to all days at their leisure.
As is tradition, each inn is paired with a wonderful local restaurant or culinary partner on Saturday and Sunday, providing an array of signature treats and sumptuous bites for your enjoyment, as you stroll from inn to inn. The tour can be navigated on foot or you can opt to take the complimentary Old Town Trolley along the tour route on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
“Experience St. Augustine’s holiday spirit while touring bed and breakfasts in the historic district and sampling food from local restaurants on this popular walking tour.”
