End-of-Summer deals

Jay Humphreys reminded Historic City News that summer isn’t over and there’s still time to enjoy exciting events and experiences while taking advantage of great deals on hotels and attractions in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and the Beaches.

Through September 30, St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches is offering End-of-Summer deals that are perfect for a late-summer getaway to a place with exceptional golf and incredible history- – – a place where visitors don’t have to wait in line to ride a wave and won’t have to spend a fortune to spend time with the ones they love.

Get in a party mood with special discounts on seaside accommodations and join in the summer-long celebration of the 50th birthday of the City of St. Augustine Beach. Or if golf’s your game, great accommodation discounts are available at World Golf Village and at the exclusive resorts of Ponte Vedra Beach – home to some of the world’s greatest courses. Great end-of-summer discounts are also available on ghost tours, hands-on museum experiences for the entire family, and even a special offer on touring one of St. Augustine’s most famous and intriguing landmarks. There’s even a crab-fishing cruise that promises everyone will take home at least a dozen tasty crabs. Overnight visitors can also get discounts on meals in the heart of the Oldest City’s historic district.
