The beach


This is a great tourist spot. So many museums, art galleries, eateries and 40+ miles of beautiful beach. We really had fun visiting this city. It reminds me a little bit of New Orleans. We only spent 2 days and could have stayed for a couple of weeks or more.

We took another tour. This one was $20 each if bought on-line and was good for 3 days. There were 22 stops. You can get on and off at any of them at any time during the day. The ticket included a ride out to the beach too. Again, the tour was worth it. Since our time was short, it helped us decide what to focus on.

Our favorite was the Lightener Museum. It is multiple floors of glasswork, furniture, furnishings, clothes, etc. from the 19th century.

We are staying at Pacetti's RV Park. It is a large park with a lot of long term guests. It borders Trout Creek that is popular for fishing. There is a boat launch available right in the park property. This was a great park for $15 a night, F/H (Passport America). We wished it was a little closer to old St. Augustine. It was about a 1/2 hr drive.

Our next adventure is attending a Native American Pow Wow for Thanksgiving!
