The weather is getting cooler up north and my thoughts start to turn toward a trip down south. One place I recently found out about is St. Augustine Ponte Vedra in Florida. It is located just south of Jacksonville along the east coast of Florida.
One of the things that caught my eye, besides all the history this place has, is the event Uptown Saturday Night. They have antique shops, galleries and one of my favorites the Ripley museum that all stay open for the special event. The Uptown Saturday Nights are on the last Saturday of every month. Sorry we just missed the October 27th one but there are more to come, but only two left in 2007 November 24th and December 29th. Of course 2008 is completely open too.
So what happens during these evenings? All kinds of special events thatâ€™s what! They have book signings, live music, and other fun events to make the whole thing a big party. It is right down town from 5 to 9 pm on the last Saturday of every month. So when you are heading down south for warmer weather be sure to head out to the events in St. Augustine Ponte Vedra along the Florida cost.
Oh and did I mention the parking is free and the admission is free.
