It’s always around this time of year that I start to get the itch to go somewhere. Whether it’s up north to connect with family for the holidays, out west to take in some beautiful scenery, or back south to soak up some rays and reminisce, I just get the travel bug.
That photo was taken exactly one year ago yesterday. Now, I’m a huge fan of a white Christmas but a white Thanksgiving is not something I need. With as hard as it’s currently raining and as cold as it’s been getting at night, all I can think is with just a small drop in temperature we’d be getting a massive snow storm today, too.
Once place I’d really like to go this winter is back to St. Augustine. One of my favorite events from the four years I lived there was the annual Nights of Lights celebration. It actually kicks off this weekend, and I would really love to share it’s beauty with my family. Plus maybe Bubbles could get in a little kiddie golf that doesn’t require sweatpants and a pullover.
The Hyatt Place near the Jacksonville Airport is just up the road from St. Augustine and would be a great “home base” to stay at while visiting. You can experience all Jax has to offer, yet still make quick trips down to St. Augustine and the surrounding area. Right now the Hyatt is offering 20% off a stay of 2+ nights and 25% off a stay 3+ nights with promo code WSALEA when you book by November 30th. It’s good at the Hyatt Place Jacksonville Airport and these other Hyatt Hotel locations.
If you’d rather head into the snow versus out of it there’s a special Snow on Sale offer for Colorado, Utah and Nevada. Book the special from Hyatt.com through April 7th, 2016 and you’ll earn a free night’s stay from participating resorts.
