St. Augustine and the Sea


St. Augustine is a city graced with many spectacular attributes. The vibrant culture, deep history, and beautiful sandy beaches are only a select few. St. Augustine is a coastal gem, plain and simple. A gem which had not been for the brave explorers of the early seas would remain undiscovered. Throughout the centuries St. Augustine has evolved into the wonderful city that we here at Beacher’s Lodge Oceanfront Suites know and love today. This is thanks to those pioneers of the sea, St. Augustine is at its heart a coastal town, plain and simple. For hundreds of years countless numbers of marine vessels have visited our shores, from the grandest Galleons to the smallest dinghies. This October the St. Augustine Maritime Heritage Foundation is celebrating the inaugural festival celebrating the rich maritime history of this city. The festival begins October 25 and runs through the 27th and features live entertainment, a bar tending challenge, food, crafts, model boats, kid’s zone, dog agility, and finally a “quick and dirty” boat building competition and race!

Time to Relax


That inevitable time of the year has yet again reached our shores. Summer is winding down, and the kids are going back to school. As the season of bustling crowds and hot sun recedes like the waves, a great opportunity to enjoy the beach again presents itself. Here at Beacher’s Lodge the few weeks before the Labor Day are the best to spend a few nights recharging for the upcoming school year. Treat yourself, or even the entire family┬áto a getaway with the sole purpose of relaxing. This is the time not to stress about planning for school, but rather a period of reflection about the great experiences that have occurred this summer. Just sitting on the beach with the sole purpose of doing nothing, can be one of the best therapies. Provide yourself and your family with a stress-free weekend and stay here with us at Beacher’s Lodge Oceanfront Suites. Allow yourself one final period of summer respite before the Labor Day holiday and usher in the Fall season with a more calm and peaceful state of mind. Remember the ocean is the best healer!
