Concerts in the Plaza 2015

This post is part of my 31 Days of Summer in St. Augustine series... free & fun ways to #LoveWhereYouLive! St. Augustine boasts not one, but two free concerts weekly!! You can head to the beach on Wednesdays for Music by the Sea or bring a chair and enjoy concerts in St. Augustine's Plaza de la Constitucion Thursday nights this summer at 7 pm.  Parking is tricky these nights, I'd just use your Park Now Card and park in the garage.  So maybe opt for a blanket to sit on... chairs could get heavy walking that far!

Cold Cow Ice Cream

31 Days 1 Cold Cow

Hi, Simply St. Augustine friends! This post is part of my 31 Days of Summer in St. Augustine series. I've done all the research so you can kick back & have fun this summer! Read through all the ideas here.

My friend … [Read more...]
