What To See and Do in St. Augustine, Florida This Fall https://explorea1a.com/what-to-see-and-do-in-st-augustine-florida-this-fall/ https://explorea1a.com/what-to-see-and-do-in-st-augustine-florida-this-fall/#respond Wed, 29 Sep 2021 13:33:49 +0000 https://explorea1a.com/?p=27006 St. Augustine, Florida is rarely anyone’s first guess when someone asks them about the United States’ oldest city, and yet there it is: located right along the Pacific coastline of Florida just south of Jacksonville lies the historic city of St. Augustine, founded by the Spanish in 1565. This beautiful destination has been recognized as one of the 26 Most Beautiful Towns in America by Condé Nast Traveler. With a mixture of Spanish, Spanish Revival, Moorish and even Victorian architecture, the city screams European charm and transports its visitors to a place that doesn’t really feel like Florida, despite the palm trees and Spanish moss.

Because, really, there’s nothing better than elevating that toes-in-the-sand experience with a tropical cocktail or ice-cold beer and perhaps a light bite or two. For us Floridians, the beach bar options are basically infinite. So we decided to share our favorites. From hidden gems to Sunshine State icons, all feature an array of adult beverages – plus some tasty food options – in a fun, waterfront setting.

Historic Female Motorcycle Ride Kicked Off in Ormond Beach https://explorea1a.com/historic-female-motorcycle-ride-kicked-off-in-ormond-beach/ https://explorea1a.com/historic-female-motorcycle-ride-kicked-off-in-ormond-beach/#respond Mon, 20 Sep 2021 13:21:01 +0000 https://explorea1a.com/?p=26994 “Because she did it, we can.” That seemed to be the theme of about 300 female motorcycle riders from around the country who decided the greater Daytona Beach area was the starting point of this year’s ride to honor one of their own. Bessie Stringfield was the first Black woman to ride a motorcycle solo across the country in 1930 at age 19. Ms. Stringfield was known as “the Motorcycle Queen of Miami.” There have been eight other rides to honor her, but this one will be part of a documentary film by L.A. Producer Diane Fredel-Weis, a native of Miami whose films have screened on Showtime and in film festivals worldwide along with Beth Hubbard, executive producer of the “Summer of Soul” on Hulu and producer of an upcoming CNN Films/HBO Max documentary about Arthur Ashe.
