For the past 30 years, St. Augustine has marked the Saturday before Thanksgiving with Light Up! Night. During the annual Nights of Lights, millions of twinkling white lights come to life and illuminate the historic architecture of the nation’s oldest city. The festival, which encompasses more than 20 blocks of the historic district, has roots in the Spanish tradition of placing lit white candles in the windows of homes to mark the Christmas season. Today, Nights of Lights has a global audience -- recognized by National Geographic, Conde Nast Travelers, and AAA Auto Club as one of the best cities for holiday lights displays. Historic buildings, museums, inns, hotels, restaurants, boats, carriages, trees, and more are all lit with soft white lights, setting the stage for Thanksgiving and the holidays beyond. Hear more on Thursday, November 16, when TRAVEL ITCH RADIO completes its 12th broadcast season with special guest Barbara Golden, communications manager for Florida's Historic Coast. Listen live at 8p EST on iTunes or BlogTalkRadio.com or check out the archived show anytime on Facebook.
