This year’s 4th of July celebration in downtown St. Augustine is going to be one of the most incredible events of the entire year. Since the 4th falls on a Friday this year, there’s never been a better excuse to get out of town for the weekend. If you’ve never experienced 4th of July fireworks in St. Augustine, you have simply been missing out. All roads in and out of downtown are closed around 5pm to vehicles. Thousands of spectators travel from all over the state to watch the fireworks over the Matanzas inlet. While sitting out on the Fort lawn, you can experience one of the best firework displays you will ever see.
Normally 4th of July in St. Augustine requires lots of planning. Since all roads are closed it is extremely difficult to get in and out of the city. By staying with Carriage Way you will avoid this issue entirely. We offer FREE ONSITE PARKING to all of our guests and we are located just a short 5 minute walk from the center of all the festivities.
As if fireworks weren’t enough, the 4th of July is also the first Friday of the month, which means all the art galleries in the city will be open to the public for First Friday Art Walk! Enjoy complimentary champagne and wine while walking through semi private galleries. This is a great chance to experience all that the nation’s oldest city has to offer. This jam packed weekend will definitely sell out in the city, so don’t wait! Call us today and let us help you begin to plan your vacation!
