Must-Do Activities for Wedding Guests

Visiting for a wedding? In addition to the wedding festivities, we've rounded up seven ways to savor St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach while you're here.

St. Augustine is not only a popular place to pop the question or celebrate an anniversary, but many couples get married in the Nation’s Oldest City. More than 100 weddings take place in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra each month, and many of them are destination weddings with family and friends traveling from out of town.

While guests may have designated wedding activities and roles to play during the visit, there's also time to explore on your own. Here are seven ways to enjoy your stay on Florida's Historic Coast.

1. Enjoy a historic tour on wheels aboard the Old Town Trolleys or Ripley's Sightseeing Trains. Each offers dozens of stops at museums, attractions and points of interest for you to hop on and off all day. 

2. A visit to St. Augustine wouldn’t be complete without a stroll down historic St. George Street. This pedestrian only thoroughfare is lined with unique shops, independently owned restaurants, museums and historic places. 
 
3. Climb 219 steps to the top of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. You’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean and St. Augustine’s historic district.  

4. Be adventurous and explore the dark side of the destination with a ghost tour. A variety of tours run nightly.

5. Sink your toes in the sand at Ponte Vedra Beach, a coastline known for its unspoiled beauty. The beaches at the GTM Reserve feature a dune overlook platform and easy parking.

6. Golfers, scratch an item off your bucket list by playing at The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Then visit the World Golf Hall of Fame, the only place in the world where golf’s greatest players are enshrined along with exhibits tracing the evolution of the game.

7. Let your foodie flag fly. The Tasting Tours take you on a walk through history while you sample delicious specialties from locally owned restaurants. There are also free tours and tastings at the St. Augustine Distillery and San Sebastian Winery.
