THE Perfect Destination for Halloween: St Augustine FL

The days are growing shorter and the nights seem darker and cool breezes rustle the palms in our courtyard. Or...was it really just the breezes rustling the palms? St Augustine is the oldest city in the United States with almost 450 years of people living (and dying...) here. Shadows darken our narrow streets and the clip clop of horses hooves make you wonder if that carriage is from our century, or perhaps an apparition from centuries ago. Halloween - one of our favorite times of the year - is almost here and there is lots of fun to be had - both in the daytime and, if you dare, during the shadows of the night! And, yes!
