Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, FL
I haven’t had a chance to profess my love for St. Augustine yet, so let me just say: I’m in LOVE with that place! It’s in my top 5 favorite cities list, without a doubt.
For Pablo’s birthday, we decided to spend the day at one of the most popular attractions in the nation’s oldest city: The Lightner Museum. Life being what it is, we only ended up having about an hour to spend there. (But what a glorious hour it was!)
This place is straight up amazing. It’s been a house, a hotel, and now a museum. The architecture and details will leave you breathless.
The artwork and artifacts housed here are nothing to sneeze at either. From stained glass windows to hand chiseled marble statues, stuffed lions to shrunken heads, meteorites to glasswork, this place had it all.
I could see younger children being bored here (and potentially breaking things), but this is a great stop for adults and older children. If you love art, you’ll love this place. We’ll definitely be back for another trip!
(Major props to my friend, Megan Belcher, who gave us her Groupon to visit the Lightner!)
