You’ll never forget Nights of Lights in St. Augustine… great reason to stay with us from November 22 – February 1, 2015. Nights of Lights traditionally begins the Saturday before the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, Nights of Lights “turns on” November 22, 2014, and continues through February 1, 2015.
During Nights of Lights, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic – from the ground to the rooftops. Selected by National Geographic as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world, St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights feature millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city.
Tracing its origins to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during the Christmas holidays, the spectacular lighting reflects the city’s 449-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories.
The best way to enjoy the popular holiday lighting display is to park in the Historic Parking Facility located off Castillo Drive and enjoy the sights in one of many different ways – on foot, by bicycle or pedicab, on the Old Town Trolley or the Ripley’s Red Train, or by horse and carriage.
Guests, Friends, we can’t tell them apart at Beacher’s Lodge. Follow us on Facebook for last minute deals, discounts and information on Beacher’s Lodge. www.facebook.com/beacherslodge

As the sea turtles return to nest on the beaches of St. Johns County, officials are asking residents, visitors, and businesses to help protect the natural habitat by observing all nesting season laws and regulations. The official nesting season begins Wednesday, May 1. Between May 1 and October 31, vehicular traffic on the beach is allowed between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. In addition, all beachfront properties are required to maintain a healthy beach habitat by reducing the impact of their interior and exterior lights which may disrupt nesting sea turtles.
