HURRICANE SEASON - June, July, Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov

When did we go?

NOVEMBER - the weather was a combination of sunny and warm, and windy and cold. The wind was coming from an offshore tropical storm. But being a native Floridian, "we ain't scared of no hurricanes!"  Kidding - they are serious, sometimes. Beach was empty, but downtown St. Augustine was still busy with crowds.

 Tip - Don't forget to catch a sunrise!

Budget $$

St. Augustine is very budget friendly. Hotels/Airbnb's along the beach and in downtown St. Augustine are pretty affordable. Of course you have your 5 star hotels that aren't so much, but a lot are in the $100-$200 range per night, even less for some Airbnb's. Tons of food options to fit every budget. I prefer to stay on the beach, as downtown is only a short 10 minute drive and the beach is much more quiet and private this time of year. Keep in mind that parking downtown is free if you get there early, or up to $20 for the day in designated parking lots.
