Watching the sunset on the beach in St. Augustine, Florida.

Summer Weather

There’s just no getting around it: summer in Florida is hot. High temperatures average around 90 degrees, while lows stay around 70. Luckily, the Sunshine State does get a bit of reprieve thanks to afternoon showers. These brief periods of rain give you the perfect amount of time to relax and head inside for a bit while also cooling the area down for the evening.

Another benefit of the summer weather is longer days! The sun stays out much longer in the summer than in other seasons, so you’ll have plenty of time to take advantage of activities like swimming, shopping, boating, snorkeling, and so much more. Watching the sun set and feeling the cool breeze from the water is one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of any St. Augustine vacation.

Most Popular Events

This time of year is a busy period in St. Augustine, maybe even more than Christmas! One popular event is Music by the Sea, a family-friendly concert series offering great music and delicious food. Music genres vary week to week, from jazz to country to pop to blues and more! This event is held every Wednesday night at St. Johns County Pier, and the dates for 2019 are May 8 – September 11. Entry is free, and meal tickets are $10 or less.

If you’re in town for July 4th, head over to the Castillo de San Marcos to celebrate. The event promises food and live music, and the “Fireworks Over the Matanzas” display has to be seen to be believed. There is no admission fee, and there are plenty of restaurants and shops around the site for you to explore before or after the show.

The Ocean Gallery - Basilica Cathedral

Need to escape the heat? There are several fun indoor activities in the area. Visit the Cathedral Basilica to learn some fascinating history and witness the gorgeous architecture, or check out the World Golf Hall of Fame to keep your sports lover happy. Catch a movie at The Corazon Cinema and Café, or pose with your favorite celebrity at The Potters Wax Museum. These are all interesting and inexpensive ways to spend a rainy or especially hot day.

Finally, you have to take advantage of Florida’s fresh summer produce. Visit the Wednesday Pier Farmers Market every week from 8-12 a.m. You’ll find 60-80 local vendors with the best food and crafts in the area. If you’d rather browse in the evening, check out the Night Market at the Amphitheatre and discover all the goods while surrounded by live entertainment. This event takes place on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from March-October and lasts from 6-9 p.m.
