If you’re flying in, and would like an airport shuttle from Jacksonville, this *appears* to be the company that offers the best rates.

DISCLAIMER: I have NO affiliation or history with this company. It’s simply the one that I found through a Google search, that appears to have the best rates from Jacksonville Airport. They also offer rates from Orlando, if you’d rather fly in there.

Planning to arrive early, stay late, or dash away to the city during breaks in the event? Here are a few memorable ways to spend your time in St. Augustine:

Castillo De San Marcos National Monument – Historic Fort

The Fountain of Youth Archeological State Park – Yeah… the original site Pedro Menendez de Aviles discovered in 1565 and is “rumored” to have life extending properties

St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum – Working lighthouse and local museum. Great views from the top!

J & S Carousel – Whimsical working carousel with historic ties to Ringling Bros. Circus. Across from local public library.

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not – Take a tour through things that will make you go hmmmmm….. 🙂

Lightner Museum – Breathtaking victorian exhibits. Housed in the former famed Alcazar Hotel.

St. George Street – Must see walking/shopping/historic destination. The heart of the historic district, full of “the oldest” sites (school house, jail, etc.), along with local merchants, craftspeople, and eateries.

Pirate & Treasure Museum – Fun museum featuring a mix of Disney Imagineering and authentic pirate booty

And sooooo much more…

    • I just called the hotel and she said there shouldn’t be a problem. I’m sorry that you had an issue, but if you call back, you should be able to reserve without any further complications. Thanks for the message!! Can’t wait to see you there 🙂

  1. I just called and got my room! This is a wonderful way to celebrate my 1/2 century mark birthday. Can’t wait for February.

  2. The deluxe rooms in our reserve block are fine (I’ve seen many of them, myself). There ARE other rooms that haven’t been refurbished yet, so I would suggest sticking to our block, or if you’re more comfortable elsewhere, I understand. I’ll be staying at the host hotel, in one of the deluxe rooms, if that helps anyone decide. 🙂

  3. I am looking for a good place to go on my honeymoon and I want to have a nice hotel because that is very important to me. Thanks for sharing this information.

  4. If you want a NICE hotel, you don’t want to stay at this one. Even the “remodeled” rooms are dirty with non-working phones, rusted refrigerators and no safes. We had $100 cash stolen from my wallet in the one hour it was in our room unattended and the hotel staff was completely unhelpful. When I filed my police report, the officer told me that this hotel is totally uncooperative with the police and their security cameras don’t work, the outside doors don’t lock and their staff’s key cards do not track their entrances into the various rooms. The maintenance staff were creepy and stared at the young women lying around the pool. No one I spoke to at the convention had anything good to say about the hotel.

  5. Stay at the Inn on Charlotte B&B. So beautiful, filled with antiques. It’s right in the heart of Old Town. The owner and staff are sooo nice and accommodating. You get fabulous breakfasts and every day at 5pm is social hour with free beer and wine.
