A special report from our friends at Ocean Grove RV Resort
Whether it’s for St. Augustine’s gorgeous unspoiled beaches, wide-ranging outdoor activities or exploring the oldest city in the U.S, the Ocean Grove RV Resort has something special for every kind of traveller.
Located just blocks away from the white sands of St. Augustine Beach and minutes from the city’s historic district, the premiere RV camping resort offers 208 RV sites, looking over the rich Floridian marsh, all equipped with a picnic table and charcoal grill. Guests can also reserve the beautiful park model homes available on a three-day, weekly or monthly basis. These luxury 400 sq. ft. units come fully furnished and equipped for your visit. Inside you’ll find a full bath and a separate bedroom with a queen-size bed. Its kitchens are equipped with dishes and silverware, a coffee pot, a toaster, a microwave, an oven and a stove. All homes are fully air-conditioned and heated and come with a flat-screen TV.
The resort’s accommodations include direct water access, a family friendly swimming pool with a large deck, a kid’s playground, heated and air-conditioned bathhouses, watersports, basketball and bocce ball courts and a recreation hall for guests to enjoy.
The attentive staff available around-the-clock at Ocean Grove organizes an array of on-site activities for guests. From karaoke night, live music and trivia, campers at the RV resort are always invited to socialize and entertain themselves without having to leave the camp grounds. The resort is also equipped with a few perks for pets, like its designated dog run.
Lots to see and do in St. Augustine!
Within minutes of the resort, travellers can explore an array of attractions in the charming city of Florida’s Atlantic coast that draws in thousands of tourists every year. The oldest continuously inhabited European settlement in the United States, St. Augustine boasts historical sites and structures that even the non-history buff would enjoy.
The Colonial Quarter, also known as the city’s historic district, is another hotspot for visitors looking to learn more about the area’s rich history. With soldier home tours, themed exhibits, period restaurants, and other activities reminiscent of the past, this quarter is perfect for those hoping to become fully immersed in an interactive journey through the years.
One way to hit all the most prominent sites is by taking the Hop On Hop Off Trolley Tour. Covering the entire city, this is a great option for those wanting to save money on costly parking and skip out on city driving. With your trolley ticket, good for the entire day, you’ll also get free admission to St. Augustine History Museum, a free beach shuttle to Alligator Farm and the beach and exclusive stops at Old Jail, Potter’s Wax Museum and the Old Drug Store.
Another popular, and perhaps more tasty, tour is the Historic District Wine & Dine Culinary Tour. The chauffeured wine and food pairing tour lasts three hours and whisks visitors away to four delectable venues. An added bonus – en route between venues, it’s a guided and hosted city tour.
St. Augustine is also sprawling with wildlife! If zipping through treetops, experiencing live wildlife shows and seeing every living species of crocodilian is more your speed, guests of the Ocean Grove RV Resort are just ten minutes away from the St. Augustine Alligator Farm and Zoological Park. Or if you’d rather swim with dolphins, Marineland Dolphin Adventure is your place. With interactive programs like “dolphin meet and greets,” “dolphin designs” and “dolphin trainer for a day,” it’s no wonder why visitors come back year after year.
While the city may be better known for its robust history, St. Augustine is also home to some of the best beaches in the state. St. Johns County Ocean and Fishing Pier, for example, boasts shops, fishing, a splash and play park and sits on four acres of glistening white sand.
During the holiday season, from November through January, St. Augustine is lit up with holiday magic from ground to rooftop for its Night of Lights Festival. Tracing back to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candlelight in the window during the holidays, this light extravaganza reflects the city’s 450-year history.
All this, and so much more, when you find your place in the sun at Ocean Grove RV Resort, St. Augustine, Florida!
