Revel In Making The Most Of Every Moment
Wake up and savor a perfectly crafted brew at Pour Mike’s Coffee House or Dos Coffee, or enjoy a full breakfast any time of day at traditional favorites like Cracker Barrel, IHOP, and Waffle House. Cucina Giovanni offers traditional Italian dishes and pizza in a casual setting, and Gator’s Dockside is the spot for pub fare while watching your favorite teams. Willie Jewell’s Bar-B-Q is a local gem for old-fashioned BBQ smoked low and slow. Visit 2 Creeks Bar & Grill for a tasty variety of sandwiches, steak, seafood, traditional comfort food, and weekend brunch. When you want something extra special, try Preserved Restaurant, Llama, or Collage in the historic district. While you’re there, Prohibition Kitchen is a great place for live music or a nightcap in the form of a tipsy milkshake.
Experience a quintessential Florida day. From Soluna, it’s only 20 minutes to Vilano Beach, and St. Augustine Beach is within 30 minutes. At Vilano, take a walk on the pier and enjoy fresh seafood and waterfront views at Cap’s on the Water, The Reef, or Kingfish Grill. At St. Augustine, it’s a short walk from the shore to try Harvest & Reel or Salt Life Food Shack. Driving on the beach is allowed in both spots, and so is chasing the waves with your dog. Get out on the water to take a scenic boat tour or rent some gear to paddle board, bicycle, or surf. Check out the St. Augustine Surf Culture & History Museum, and then find the perfect spot to watch a dazzling sunset reflected on the water.
STAR-STUDDED ARTS & CULTURE
As Florida’s oldest city, just walking around St. Augustine is like visiting a huge outdoor museum full of beautiful architectural exhibits, including Castillo de San Marcos, City Gate, the Bridge of Lions, and Flagler College. The Lightner Museum hosts a variety of permanent and visiting art exhibits. Its founder described it as a “collection of collections,” so there’s something for everyone to discover. Aviles Street, the oldest street in the nation, is home to a vibrant arts district full of studios, galleries, and the First Friday Art Walk each month. Don’t miss the Nights of Lights during the winter holidays when millions of white lights glow from sidewalks to rooftops throughout 20 blocks of the historic district.
St. Augustine Premium Outlets is just five minutes from Soluna. You’ll find 50+ famous brands offering everything from stylish accessories and athletic apparel to candles and cookware to jeans and jewelry. Everyday essentials are available at Publix, Target, and Costco. The St. Augustine Amphitheatre Farmers Market is held every Saturday, offering fresh foods, prepared goods, and art. The historic district is home to many boutiques and specialty shops, including the Spice and Tea Exchange, Claude’s Chocolate, and the Carrera Wine Cellar. And for a unique shopping experience that cannot be described, there’s only one word: Buc-ee’s. You have to see it to believe it.
