St. Augustine “Nights of Lights” 


You’ll never forget “Nights of Lights” in Florida’s Historic St. Augustine! One of the best ways to experience it is to join us on a sparkly, festive trolley tour and enjoy millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city. During Nights of Lights, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic from the ground to the rooftops, and was selected by National Geographic in 2011 & 2012 as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world.  Nights of Lights in St. Augustine traces its origins back to the traditional Spanish practice of displaying a white candle in windows during the Christmas holidays. Candles in the window allude to the fact that Mary and Joseph could find no inn that would give them shelter. When the Spanish put candles in their windows, they were symbolically making room in their homes and hearts for Jesus. It also reflects the welcoming attitude of the holiday season, showing that guests are welcome to the home.

This delightful tour includes Nights of Lights Trolley Tour, Plated lunch at the Colombia Restaurant and Magic Carpet Ride Motor Coach.

Winner of 9 Tony Awards including Best Musical - You won’t want to miss this wonderful, hilarious, Broadway musical production that WILL sell out quickly. Call today to put your name on the interest list! The Book of Mormon follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to try to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. One missionary, Elder Price, is an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith, while his partner, Elder Cunningham, is a socially awkward but well meaning nerd whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble. Upon their arrival in Africa, Elders Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected.

The Book of Mormon received overwhelmingly positive critical responses and set records in ticket sales. The show was awarded nine Tony Awards, one of which was for Best Musical, plus a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. The original Broadway cast recording became the highest-charting Broadway cast album in over four decades, reaching number three on the Billboard charts.
