Rain will happen during your visit to St. Augustine, but do not let it stop you from enjoying our wonderful city. The trains and trolleys still run and will be more than happy to give you a poncho. What we have found through the years, if we come to town prepared with umbrellas in hand it does not rain. When we are not prepared is when it does rain! Never fear the stores on St. George have umbrellas and raingear in stock or check out one of the 15 Rainy Day Adventures waiting for you in St. Augustine.
