Never a Dull Moment

Lightner Museum elegant interiorSt. Augustine has more activities, events, attractions, festivals, landmarks, and other special happenings than you can possibly enjoy in one visit. What would you like to do during your stay at St. Francis Inn? Our innkeeper and staff are fabulous sources of information; but perhaps before you arrive you’d like a ‘head’s-up’ on special events that will be going on during your stay. Or maybe you’d like to make a rough list of places and activities you’d like to include in your visit. Of course, we’ve designed relaxation into every stay at the Inn: linger over a specially prepared latte, dive into a good book by the swimming pool, savor a decadent evening dessert, or sip sherry by the fireplace. Then you’ll have the energy to make your visit a true adventure!
