Best Things To Do In St. Augustine On A Rainy Day

Activities on a rainy day in St. Augustine

Rainy days don't have to be an excuse to stay inside and watch television, especially if you're in St. Augustine to escape to the Beach or the Historic District.  There are plenty of indoor activities just waiting for you to discover in order to create a memorable day during your trip. 

Use this guide to make the most of your rainy day and we can bet you it might just be the best part the entire visit!

1. Get educated at the Lightner Museum.

Park your car behind the Lightner Museum, formerly the Hotel Alcazar built by Henry Flagler in the late 1800s. Stroll through the collections gathered by O.C. Lightner during his lifetime, including vintage antiquities, furniture, artwork, and even an Egyptian mummy! 

Make sure you're in The Music Room at 11 am and listen to the 30-minute demonstration of a Nickelodeon, an orchestrion, and a gem roller organ.

2. Grab lunch and a movie at Corazon Cinema & Cafe.

Watch recent and throwback movies while dining on sandwiches and wraps at the Corazon Cinema & Cafe. Just across the street from the Lightner Museum on Granada Street, this unique movie experience is unlike any other offered in St. Augustine. 

What makes it even more interesting is that the cinema's location is a vintage commercial building, allowing the guest to feel like they've been transported back in time.

3. Take a free tour at the St. Augustine Distillery and eat dinner at The Ice Plant.

What is better than learning about handcrafted spirits and liquor?  Being able to drink samples for free!  Learn about how this local award-winning distillery uses farm-raised crops and local vendors to make the best spirits in town, including rum, vodka, bourbon, and gin. 

Located in a vintage early 1900's ice plant, it shares the space with a restaurant named for the building itself.  The Ice Plant offers fresh, local cuisine and the bar is stocked with St. Augustine Distillery spirits to ensure you're never parched.
