Fall is a great time of year to visit the Sunshine State, especially beautiful St. Augustine!
1. Temperature highs are in the low-80′s, so you can still enjoy the Florida sunshine without the brutal heat & humidity that summer can bring
2. Beaches (and downtown attractions) are less crowded
3. It’s our low season at the Ocean Gallery, so you save on rental rates!
While you’re here, check out these fun fall events going on around town:
