St. Augustine Artwalk

America's oldest city certainly doesn't sit back on her laurels and enjoy old age. She's got it goin' on. The first weekend of every month in St. Augustine, Florida is all about music and art. It's the First Friday Weekend Art Walk, and it's FREE. From 5-9pm, the art galleries offer free self-guided tours of their exhibits. Admission is free. Parking is free, and the St. Augustine Sightseeing Trains and Old Town Trolleys offer complimentary shuttle service to most of the galleries.

Due to the cold weather setting in here in Wisconsin, my first attraction to the St. Augustine Artwalk was that it is in Florida, where it's warm. But then I started visiting some of the web pages of featured St. Augustine artists to see what kind of artwork will be on display. This is some nice artwork. No, I don't really understand art. I just know what I like to look at, and this sounds like it would be a great way to check out some artwork in a fun and relaxed setting. With over 20 galleries participating, you can enjoy not only the latest exhibits, but also music, entertainment and refreshments.

Did I mention that it's FREE?
