If you happen to be staying with us during the 4th of July holiday you really lucked out with one of the best locations in town for all the holiday events! Literally just steps away from St. Augustine's Bayfront, find yourself in the heart of all the action to enjoy one of the state’s best firework presentations!
The City of St. Augustine presents a gala July 4th celebration beginning with a concert by the All Star Orchestra in the Plaza at 6pm and ending with amazing fireworks over Matanzas Bay at 9:30pm. What’s absolutely wonderful about our location is that you can literally take a few steps and be right back to the inn avoiding all the traffic and crowds.
It is exciting to announce that the All Star Orchestra will return to the plaza for a two-hour show filled with Big Band and Swing music along with traditional patriotic favorites for the occasion! The concert is free and those attending should bring chairs or blankets for seating.
Fireworks over the Matanzas, the highlight of St. Augustine’s traditional July 4th activities has become known for celebrating Independence Day in the Nation’s Oldest City with a bang (pun intended)!
The 20-minute display is tightly choreographed to a soundtrack of great popular music delivered over an extensive sound system transforming the entire Bayfront between the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument and the Bridge of Lions into a theater of sight and sound. The firework show happens so close to the inn you could almost just stay where you are but to avoid any obstruction by the trees, its best to walk down to the Bayfront. Be sure to depart about a half hour or more ahead of time for good seating along the fort green.
