St. Augustine is the place to be in the summer, and the Sing Out Loud Festival is part of the reason why! This free – you read that right, free – festival runs from Friday, September 6th to Sunday, September 29th. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday there are fantastic new acts to see spread out through the beautiful city of St. Augustine, and we have the inside scoop on where to go, where to eat, and how to make the most out of this fantastic event.

Eating

With multiple venues each weekend, it can be hard to pick where to go. While some restaurants are hosting the concerts, others are not, so we have put together a handy little guide on the nearest places to eat for the venues that pop up most on the schedule. 112 Riberia Street, home of the St. Augustine Distillery, is a venue every weekend of the festival! The closest eatery to the venue is the renowned Ice Plant Bar, which boasts a menu from soft baked pretzel bread to umami watermelon-tomato salad, local fish, and half pound burgers.

77 Bridge Street is another repeat venue, with the wonderful Preserved Restaurant just down the street. Fine dining for a very reasonable amount, treat yourself there to Mayport shrimp and grits or a mouthwatering creme brulee. Near the Colonial Oak Music Park, you can find two great venues – the No Name Bar which has a small but mouth-watering menu of burgers, fish sandwiches and tacos, and the Taberna del Caballo, a restaurant with a wonderful variety of Spanish food ranging from nachos to tacos, to carne asada.

Anastasia State Park, home of the St. Augustine Ampitheatre, has Island Joe’s – some of the best fresh daily food with wonderful new specials every day. Sarbez! and Shanghai Nobby’s are both repeat venues that double as eateries. Enjoy some wonderful, quality dinner along with fantastic music!

Parking

Parking can be difficult, so we’ve put together a list of the nearest parking to take some of the pressure off. For parking near the St. Augustine Distillery, check out the 90 Riberia Street Parking. It’s nearby, and leaves a few blocks to enjoy the nice weather. Near 33 Saint George Street, you have the Tolomato Metered and Permit Parking. 1-45 Washington Street Parking is perfect for parking near 77 Bridge Street, or park near Preserved Restaurant to do all your parking for the night in one fell swoop. Parking for Sarbez!, Shanghai Nobby’s and the St. Augustine Ampitheatre are all available at the establishment themselves, or at nearby establishments.

Book your favorite Beacher’s Lodge suite today for a music-filled weekend getaway, and don’t forget to check out our rental specials!

If there is one question I hear a lot from our guests, it is “what should we do first in historic St. Augustine?” Of course, as a local, I always say, be sure to eat at any of the fabulous restaurants. Naturally, I tend to give a tip here and there as any local would. 

Parking Garage

If you have had the good fortune of taking a short adventure to downtown St. Augustine, you might have noticed that parking is scarce. Many visitors start their day early and park at the parking garage located on Cordova street. Parking is expensive if you are just looking to eat at one establishment or take an hour stroll. You can also try your hand at the meters located throughout the area. I rarely use the meters as I tend to lose track of time and my meter is then in need of more money. But when I do use them, I find the nearest meter to where I want to go by using this map of the meters in the city. You can find it by clicking here

 

Of course, everyone says, “Is this what you do?” Just between my readers and the world wide web, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that you will only hear of locals and those blending in as a local would do. 

Trolley Parking

I have parked my vehicle at the visitors center and rode the trolley to any of the areas amazing restaurants. I don’t always take the trolley, sometimes it depends on the time of day or year. If it isn’t too hot, I love strolling the area to see where my tastebuds lead me. Another bonus is they stop everywhere! 

 

If you are an avid walker, you could park at one of the local establishments off of US 1 and take in a long scenic walk. Of course, I can’t promise that any of these tips won’t get you towed. 

Attractions and Events

Many of us love checking out what is going on in the historic district. It seems that there is always something going on. Whether it be a local band playing at Prohibition Kitchen or an annual event in the park like the September’s Sing Out Loud Festival.  With great events going on throughout the entire year, you’ll often hear our guests say, “ANY time of year is a great time to visit!” My local advice is to check out this local site for any current events or festivals and make your dining experience revolve around the event. 

Beach Time

Of course while here, part of your dining experience has to include the beach. Naturally, you will either have a picnic on the beach or grill your favorite cuisine on the property with the most magnificent view you could imagine. But are there other ways of having a unique beach dining experience? Of course there are! You can stroll on over the South Beach Grille and have an amazing entree made for you while you enjoy your beachfront view.  

These are just a few tips you can enjoy during your visit to the area. We are all about making your visit with us as fun, easy and memorable as possible. We’ll see you during Easy Season!

As visitors browse the historic district of St. Augustine, many refer to it is a tiny glimpse of Europe. The cobblestone roads are much more narrow than what most of us are used to. The old style buildings that are original in design but have had upkeep over the years take you back to an era of long ago. The feeling of this part of town not only takes you to a new experience but so does the food. After eating at the Columbia this past week, I became truly inspired to write this piece for all the past, current, and future guests of the Beachers Lodge. 

The Columbia

If you are looking for an authentic Columbian dining experience, then look no further than one of my all-time favorites: The Columbia. It is centrally located on the ever so popular St. George street. If the wait is long, which often occurs on the weekend, you can enjoy its genuine Columbian ambiance in their outdoor courtyard. They have a beautiful fountain and you can even have a drink while you wait. I highly recommend their Sangrias! Once seated, you can enjoy some of the Columbian decor – and you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu! It’s the closest thing to authentic Columbian food without using your passport. One more tip, be sure to stop at their gift shop on the way out. They have beautiful pottery and various ingredients for sale. I highly recommend purchasing their Sangria mix. It tastes just like the one you enjoyed with dinner. 

 

If you are up for a wine tasting after dinner, I have the perfect little spot for you. Once you exit the Columbia restaurant, take a step to your right on George Street and stroll on over to the Gifted Cork. They have delicious wines that won’t break the bank. I love heading over there for my dessert wine as their daily tastings are only $5! 

Catch 27

If you are looking for a taste of St. Augustine, then look no further than Catch 27. It’s located near the tail end of Charlotte Street. One of my favorite things about Catch 27 is how almost all of their ingredients come from either our local fisherman or a local farm, so you know it is all very fresh! Another cool thing about Catch 27 is how they have brought the native Minorcan flavor to the table. The spirit of the Minorcan lives and breathes in many things in St. Augustine, but what I love the most is the unique flavor that can be found in Catch 27’s Minorcan Chowder. The menu does change according to season. Be sure to stop by if you are here during Red Snapper season!

Harry’s Seafood Bar & Grill

Looking to spice up your dinner tonight? Look no further than Harry’s! I’ve had the pleasure of spending some time in the Big Easy, aka New Orleans and the Cajun spirit is one to enjoy. You will get a taste of the Big Easy at Harry’s. I highly recommend their Jambalaya. If that is not your cup of tea then try their French Baked Scallops. It will make your taste buds dance!!!

 

Prohibition Kitchen

If you are looking for something completely different, something you have probably never experienced before, then Prohibition Kitchen is a must! From the moment you walk in, you feel like you are in the prohibition era! Even the staff have dressed the part. You can’t go wrong with their local beers and amazing mixed drinks. My all-time favorite and must have each time I go is their pretzel! I’ve been known to have one as a meal; they are HUGE! For those of you that need more to satisfy your appetite, I highly recommend the Whiskey BBQ Burger. Your taste buds will be singing Charlie Daniels songs all night long! Not into burgers? How about their Braised Beef jus. It is to die for!!!  An extra treat is their live entertainment every night. 

 

I’ll be sure to write some more on my most favorite places to eat, but now I’ve made myself so hungry, I’m gonna have to grab a bite to eat. My taste buds are feeling a little rebellious, so Prohibition Kitchen it is! 

It is almost that time of the year when everyone gathers for one of the summer’s biggest holidays. The Fourth of July is a day to celebrate the independence of our great country and spend some time out in the sun before joining together for a dazzling display of fireworks.

St. Augustine enjoys celebrating the 4th in style, so to help you make the most of your time with Beacher’s Lodge, we’ve created a guide to some of the fun things to do for the holiday.

St. Augustine has a multitude of sights to see, and the St. Augustine Sightseeing Tours is the perfect way to pick and choose where you want to go, and when! Hop on and off at any of 23 stops, from the Fountain of Youth to the Plaza de la Constitucion to the Colonial Quarter. As part of the Fountain of Youth package, you’ll also receive admission to the Old Jail, Oldest Store Museum, the St. Augustine History Museum, and of course, the Fountain of Youth. Trolley tickets are valid for two consecutive days, so if you can’t fit everything into one day, don’t fret – you can always come back the next day.

On the day of the 4th, if you’re looking for some time outside of St. Augustine, visit Palm Coast to attend the Choral Arts Society show. The show will be an hour and a half long, filled with patriotic tunes. The show is entirely free, though donations will go towards the benefit of art and music students in the form of scholarships.

If parades are more your style, check out the Fabulous Fourth Festival on the A1A Highway at Flagler Beach. Running from 10 am to noon, the parade will be filled with floats and entertainment, including the handing out of candy if you have any little ones with you, or just want to treat yourself.

Back in St. Augustine, fireworks will be held at 9:30 pm, at 1 South Castillo Drive. Prior to the fireworks, there will be an orchestra entertaining from 6 to 8 pm at the Plaza de la Constitucion, playing a mix of swing and Americana tunes! The bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic, but there will be a free Park & Ride shuttle on Anastasia Blvd. From 6:00 p.m. until midnight from three parking locations along Anastasia Blvd. in St. Augustine Beach. The shuttle will pick up at these locations: Anastasia Baptist Church (1650 A1A South), St. Augustine Amphitheatre (1340-C A1A South) and R.B. Hunt Elementary School (125 Magnolia Dr.). For more information, click here.

If being a little further from the action is more your style, the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum will allow for a view of the fireworks from almost 170 feet in the air! The cost is $40 for adults and $35 for children under 12. Move quickly, there are just a few tickets left!

No matter what you choose to do, spending your Independence Day in and around the Nation’s oldest city is sure to give you a wonderful patriotic experience!

Father’s Day is quickly approaching, and some of us are not sure what we should do for dad on his special day. Should you get him a tie, or a weekend at the beach grilling steaks in the BBQ area at Beacher’s Lodge?

Naturally we think a weekend getaway for dad is much better than a tie and we bet dad will agree. Not only can he grill his favorite BBQ burgers or steaks, but there’s lots to do with dad in the  Crescent beach area.

Just south of St. Augustine, Crescent Beach boasts some of the best sun and sand that you can find. Gorgeous beaches are surrounded by history and top-rated restaurants, making this the perfect place to spend a day with Dad.

Fort Matanzas National Monument

An excellent place to start the day would be at Fort Matanzas National Monument. Consisting of a fort that has been standing since 1740, as well as 100 acres of salt marsh and barrier islands, this national monument stands as a symbol of protection. The history of Coastal Florida is filled with major conflicts as everyone sought to control the New World, and this Fort is part of what is left of that history. The fort today serves to protect the barrier islands and the plants and animals that have lived there for hundreds of years.

Kite Surfing

Also on Matanzas Inlet, there are long stretches of beach prime for kitesurfing, something that can be arranged with help from Kiteboarding Florida. Whether you want to stay on Matanzas or take a short trip to somewhere like Porpoise Point, they will help you organize the outing by pointing you in the right direction.

South Beach Grill

A morning of kitesurfing is sure to work up an appetite, and South Beach Grill is one of the top-rated restaurants in Crescent Beach. With a variety of menu options from vegan to gluten-free, burgers to tacos, healthy bowls to fried gator tail, there is surely something on the menu to please any palate.

Moses Creek Conservation Area

To work off your delicious lunch, take dad on a trip to the Moses Creek Conservation area, and walk along a variety of trails, or explore the bluffs within the area. Moses Creek is a wonderful place to picnic, fish, and take a glimpse of the wildlife around you.

Head back to Beacher’s Lodge to add to the comfort and ease of an exciting Crescent Beach getaway – where there’s always a wonderful selection of suites. Spend the evening on the ocean front balcony and have one of those heart to hearts with dear Ol’ Dad. Give the king of the castle the weekend he deserves, and start making memories with us at Beacher’s Lodge.

Mother’s Day has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the sentiment behind the holiday has to end within twenty-four hours. Whether you wanted to avoid the crazy rush the day of, or try to save your sanity in the days leading up to it, Beacher’s Lodge has all the details for a Mother’s Day Getaway.

Whether you want to have a mommies day out with your other mom friends, or you want to spend quality time just you and your mom, there’s a place that’s perfect for you. Nothing starts off the morning the right way more than a trip to the spa. Luckily, there’s quite a few options right in the St. Augustine area, each offering something different to make sure that you get what you want most.

Small Indulgences Day Spa has a wide variety of options for services, ranging from facials, to hair treatments, to massages. They even offer various different packages, from all day packages ( for those mommas that desperately need that rest and relaxation ) to a sample package that will give you the quick refresh you need before you head out the door to your next location.

If the morning at the spa works up your appetite, there are plenty of food options in the area to satisfy those cravings. Michael’s Tasting Room, considered one of the premier special occasion dining choices, has a wide variety of seasonal fish and steakhouse cuts, any of which could be followed with a classic Florida Key Lime Pie. However, if your stomach is screaming for a wonderful sandwich, The Ice Plant is the place for you. With a menu dedicated to unique flavors handcrafted from local ingredients, the farm to table cousine and cocktails are sure to hit the spot!

At the end of your St. Augustine adventure, nothing rounds out the perfect girl’s day out like a trip to the award winning San Sebastian Winery. Tours and tastings run about forty-five minutes, where the wonderful tour guides take you around the wine production facility before letting you taste the wine and see for yourself what all the buzz is about.

Once you have had a fun and exciting day in downtown St. Augustine, be sure to enjoy a glass of wine from the bottle you bought from the San Sebastian Winery as you watch the waves roll in and sing you a lullaby from your Beacher’s Lodge balcony. No matter the time of year, watching the day settle into the night is always breathtaking.

Mom getaways are the perfect way to get the rest and relaxation all moms need while staying at their home away from home. So whether you’re in the area or coming in from out of town looking for the perfect Mother’s Day weekend getaway, be sure to check out the specials on Beacher’s Lodge to find the best option for you.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and with it, so is the stress of finding the perfect Mother’s Day gift. It always seems to be a struggle each year – nothing advertised seems to be the right thing, nothing seems to be enough for the person who always puts themselves last, so you wait and wait hoping that the right things will come to you.

This year, there is no need for the panic, no need for the last minute shopping chaos because Beachers Lodge has you covered. With a close proximity to downtown St. Augustine, there is no shortage of excursions to plan, or places to shop.

For the Fishing Mom

If your mom is the kind to have been recently begging you to spend some quality time together, there are a multitude of options in the St. Augustine area, starting with surf fishing just a few steps from your Beachers Lodge condo. Begin with a few lessons from Noel Kuhn, or jump right into a full five hours on the beach with nothing but the sun, the sand, and your fishing rod. If time on the open sea is more her style, you can find full and half day fishing charters organized by Sea Love Charters or our favorite, the Jody Lynn. With everything provided for you, barring your mom’s favorite meal that you’ll pack to bring along, this is the perfect way to spend all your time focused on bonding.

Mom Wants Salt Therapy

Mom does so much for the family all year round. To keep her sanity during her beach vacation, why not let mom enjoy a little salt thereapy. We offer salt therapy here at the property free of charge. Let mom enjoy a relaxing evening as she sips a nice glass of wine (or whatever she chooses to quench her thirst) as she breaths in the salt air. The sunrises from our balconies can’t be beat!!! That’s one way mom can get in a little salt therapy while enjoying the view.

If mom is looking for a more formal version of Salt Therapy, we suggest taking mom to Salt Spa St. Augustine where she can enjoy a unique salt therapy experience. This spa is located in downtown St. Augustine which resembles a salt cave and features water therapy too!!! It will be an experience she will never forget.

Mom Would Love an Eco Tour

Returning a little bit closer to home, Eco Tours is a fantastic way to spend some quality time with your mom while also learning more about the local environment. From boating expeditions to kayaking adventures and sailing excursions, Eco Tours will be there to help you every step of the way. They even offer private tours, in case you feel like planning a special surprise to round out the day.

Mom the Chocolate Lover

Whetstone Chocolates, located on St. George Street, is the place to go for the best chocolates in all of St. Augustine. From assorted chocolates to chocolate covered pretzels to sugar-free options, you’re sure to find something to please in this wonderful shop – and you might even get to enjoy a tasting while you’re there.

Mom Loves a Little Spice

The Spice and Tea Exchange on Hypolita Street has a variety of teas, spices, sugars, sea and mineral salts, and plenty of accessories to accompany or accommodate any of the aforementioned gifts. They even have pre-organized crate boxes to ship rest and relaxation directly to your mom’s front door. How cool would it be for mom to have an extended Mom Appreciation gift waiting for her after enjoying her beach getaway with you?

Mom Loves Shopping

If a day out in the sun isn’t what momma ordered, and you know that mom loves to go shopping, there are a multitude of stores just a short drive away from your home away from home -Beachers Lodge. 

If you and mom feel up for a small adventure, the Vintage Warehouse on Anastasia Boulevard is the place for you. Filled to the brim with unique, upcycled vintage wares, chances are that you and mom will find something among the shelves that just screams take me home!

Mother’s Day doesn’t have to be a day of stress, hoping that everything goes perfectly. Let Beachers Lodge help you make it the best Mother’s Day yet, and be sure to take a look at the special discounts on rentals going on now!

The St. Augustine amphitheatre is an integral part of the town’s community. It’s a place where people can gather to experience music, movies, and magic. The venue is the perfect blend of rich history and vibrant community.

The amphitheatre was built in 1965 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the town. Florida’s official state play – The Cross and the Sword – debuted on the amphiteatre stage when the amphiteatre opened. Written by Dr. Paul Green, the symphonic drama depicts life in St. Augustine during its founding and earliest years. The play’s final performance was in 1996.

The amphitheatre found new life in 2002 when St. John’s County decided to renovate the venue. This rennovation took 5 years. Located in Anastasia State Park, the current amphitheatre grounds cover 16 acres – including the historic rock quarry. The coquina rock quarry was used to build Castillo de San Marcos and other early homes and businesses in St. Augustine. Today, the amphitheatre can host up to 4100 guests and features tours from local and national talent on its stage.

There’s truly something for everyone at the Amphitheatre. While you’re visiting St. Augustine, take a look at some of the events happening every week. Stop by the Farmer’s Market and taste some fresh Florida produce and baked goods. Or stop by the Art at Night to find one-of-a-kind gifts made from local artists. Stroll the gorgeous grounds and experience the history and sense of community that’s embodied in the St. Augustine Amphitheatre.

Farmer’s market
Hours: Every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
