Visit the St Augustine Love Tree

Many different types of plants find growth in Florida. So much so that St. Augustine has several “love trees,” which are trees that are two different species growing inside of, on top of, and through one another.

Local lore says two lovers who share a kiss beneath one of the uncommon but distinctive arbors will have an enduring romance. 

We don’t need this lore tested for authenticity because two different species of trees in an unbreakable union speak volumes on their own. Couples keep getting engaged hoping for the effect of everlasting love the tree possesses and their love passes the test of time since they always return on anniversaries to renew the effect.

The most popular love tree in the area is seen at Margaret and Frankie Espinal’s Agustina’s Love Tree Café and Boutique in St. Augustine. This small site is a perfect addition to your St Augustine romantic getaway.

Have a Wine Night

After a day out under the love tree or the historic Lighthouse, sizzle it down with a wine-tasting night. We have picked out the perfect location to get you and your partner going. St Augustine houses a renowned chef with a passion for fine flavors and top-notch wines. This passion has birthed an elegant and romantic restaurant where you can have mind-blowing dinners and an impeccable wine collection to set the mood.

The restaurant was highlighted on The Food Network during Florida’s 500th anniversary. Chef Michael also received recognition as the best chef in St. Augustine from several local magazines. With the dedicated team of servers in the dining working tirelessly to ensure you have a good time, a wine dinner at Michael’s is the perfect way to end your St. Augustine romantic getaway.
