In St. Augustine, from the middle of November to the beginning of January, the streets (and many of the homes) are covered in a wonderland of sparkling lights. Over three million lights are strung across historic structures, surrounding palm trees, and along charming brick-lined streets during this annual Night of Lights Festival.
