Pamper Yourself in St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra
Sometimes a break from your “real life” is what you need to recharge, and St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra on Florida’s Historic Coast make for a perfect getaway. With resorts offering a variety of pampering activities, treat yourself to some well-deserved relaxation while your family is having fun.
Treat Yourself to Some Spa Time
Take relaxation to another level with a spa treatment. From sprawling resort spas to intimate boutique experiences, a trip to the spa here will have you immersed in culture as well as a mud wrap. Resorts such as Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort and Spa in Ponte Vedra offer treatments such as a mineralizing moor mud body wrap, ideal for sore muscles and other aches and pains.
If you prefer a hydrating treatment to offset the sun’s effects, try a “quench body polish” at the Spa at Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, or an Ayurveda facial, brightening your skin with a combination of East and West methods.
Take time out from sightseeing around St. Augustine with a visit to Small Indulgences European Day Spa and Salon, where you can enjoy an aromatherapy massage and a reflexology treatment.
Family Fun with Your Kids
You can relax knowing your kids are having a great time on the playground at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, named the No. 1 family hotel in America by Florida Leisure magazine. Riding bikes (available for rent) or playing one of the resort’s championship golf courses are just a couple of the family-friendly options available.
Learn to play tennis during your stay at St. Augustine Ocean & Racquet Resort. The Anastasia Island condo resort offers free individual and group tennis lessons for adults and children of all skill levels at their tennis courts, as well as shuffleboard and horseshoe courts, picnic and fishing areas.
If you stay in one of St. Augustine’s many B&Bs, many of the Ancient City’s activities are nearby. Families will find The Cozy Inn to be a good choice, with townhomes and suites that provide plenty of room for families to enjoy a comfortable stay after exploring St. Augustine’s historic attractions such as the Pirate and Treasure Museum, Fountain of Youth and the Colonial Quarter.
