What’s more romantic than a love tree? That’s when two trees of different species, like an oak and a palm tree, grow together and intertwine as one. You’ll find one on Cordova and Orange Street and another one on Bridge Street. Perhaps you’ll just stumble upon it and be inspired to ask for your beloved’s hand in marriage. Legend has it, couples who kiss under a love tree will seal their love for eternity. Can’t argue with those odds.
If you want a little more dazzle and drama around your proposal, you’ve come to the right place. St. Augustine sure knows how to put on a sparkling show. Can you imagine proposing on the Bridge of Lions when suddenly the skies light up with fireworks? The July 4th Fireworks over the Matanzas is one of the best displays on the East Coast. Let’s just say, it would be an unforgettable moment.
Just as spectacular and magical would be proposing at the gazebo in the Plaza de la Constitucion during Nights of Lights. This is when the entire city is lit up with millions of tiny white lights from the ground to the rooftops, casting a spell of absolute wonder and joy over all who see it. The perfect setting for a sparkling diamond, indeed.
At the end of the day, there’s always a beautiful sunset over the ancient city skyline that inspires romance. A sunset cruise on the Schooner Freedom is a wonderful experience on any night, but made more special when you share it with one you love. Cozy up with a blanket, a glass of wine and declare your love as the wind whips through your hair. When she says “yes”, be like Jack and declare “I’m the king of the world!” After all, you’re not just proposing marriage, you’re proposing an adventure of a lifetime.
