BEING YOUNG IN THE OLDEST CITY
Florida has a lot to offer those who find themselves in the Sunshine State including the
oldest city in the United States, St. Augustine. Nicknamed the “Ancient City”, it is full of
narrow lanes and cobblestone streets. St. George Street, the heart of the historic district,
has three blocks of pedestrian-only foot traffic. Strolling down this street will bring you to
all kinds of restaurants, galleries, unique shops and bakeries—all kinds of things to taste,
see and explore. Walk down a side street and glimpse Victorian era houses and other 19th
Century buildings. The best part, the city is walkable, making it easy for anyone to enjoy.

LIGHTING THE WAY: LIGHTHOUSES OF THE SOUTHERN COAST
When you picture the coast, do sandy toes, salty air, and sea shells come to
mind? These are all generic icons we associate with being near the ocean. But there
are other landmarks that define the coastline: lighthouses. On down the coast we
stop in Georgia, home to five lighthouses. Shaped like an octagon, the Tybee Island lighthouse with a black top and bottom and a white middle as its daymark, is
proud to be one of the most complete and well-kept lighthouses in America today.
A special feature of this lighthouse is that it is able to be rented out for events. How
beautiful would it be to have a lighthouse as a back drop for an event?
