I didn't know much about St. Augustine until I ran across some black and white photos of America's oldest city at a local flea market. The pictures of the city, mostly architectural in nature intrigued me and it seems like many artists and art lovers feel the same way about St. Augustine. The city, founded by the Spanish in 1565 has evolved into a tourist mecca especially is you are an art-lover or history buff. If you find yourself planning a winter get away in Florida consider, St. Augustine Artwalk holds a First Friday Weekend Artwalk, Friday and Saturday December 7th and 8th and every first Weekend of each month after that.
Not only does it have eclectic art including photography, watercolors, oils, architecture but they also have offer free Sightseeing Train and Trolley tours. So you can enjoy the art and not have to worry about transportation once you arrive. A vacation to North Florida should always include a visit to the First Friday Weekend Art Walk you may just discover a new artist you can't live without.
