Uptown Saturday Night

A favorite end-of-the-month event, Uptown Saturday Night takes place from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm the last Saturday in October 27 and November 24 in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra and The Beaches.
Events in St. Augustine include
some antique dealers who will provide workshops covering a variety of antique related topics and book stores that will provide readings and book signings by local authors. Art galleries will feature exhibit openings of some of the finest Florida artists.
The Mission of Nombre de Dios provides free parking for Uptown Saturday Night. Each participating shop features an open house with wine and refreshments that will enhance the festive night time atmosphere.
The event sounds like a dream come true to me because I love Florida. You can't beat the sunshine and mix of people and culture not to mention the lovely beaches that dot the state's vast coastline.
The beaches for two descriptions under the Beaches and Nature section seemed so inviting. When visitor's to the site click on the scenario of their choice, they get to read about each get-a-way through the eyes of someone who has intimate knowledge of the beaches.
A good example is "Beaches for Two" by Kara Chalmers who described the "sharp, salty smell of the Atlantic Ocean," as the writer emerged from the car.
They toured their beach neighborhood and found a lovely restaurant for some fresh seafood, the writer said.
