St Augustine Events Scheduled for June
One thing about St. Augustine that never changes next to the historic buildings and monuments that have been here for centuries of course, is the welcoming feeling you’ll experience when you arrive and the fact that events go on throughout the year, so there will always be something to do!
June has started out fairly slow, but rest assure as the weather keeps getting warmer the vacations get longer! Periodically, we post events happening for the upcoming weekend. We strive to get you this information weekly as a convenience to those staying with us or even just browsing all the things to do! There’s chocolate, there’s restaurants, tours, beaches, concerts and much more. Some of these events are even FREE to the public. Here is a few we have discovered – some of which are reoccurring throughout the Summer, so feel free to plan an upcoming stay around them!
