5:36 pm Sunset St. Augustine Nights of Lights. Take a day trip (about 90 minutes to 2 hours from Orlando) to St. Augustine to enjoy their Nights of Lights display.
St. Augustine’s popular holiday season city-wide event – the famed Nights of Lights celebration – will glow with more than three million brilliant white lights again this year attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors to the oldest city in the Nation.
Nights of Lights runs November 22, 2014, through January 31, 2015, in St. Augustine, Fla. The festival starts with a countdown November 22, 6:30 p.m. in the Plaza de la Constitucion when the lights are officially lit.  Holiday music and the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree add to the splendor of the lighting of one of the world’s greatest holiday light displays.
Many historic landmarks and locations are beautifully illuminated during Nights of Lights. The waters of Matanzas bay glow from the nightly reflections of lights strewn along the bay walk and displayed on the Bridge of Lions. The Plaza de la Constitucion shines from the top of trees and throughout the famous center of St. Augustine’s historic district. The 125-year-old Hotel Ponce de Leon, now the campus of Flagler College, is outlined in lights. And the Lightner Museum, once a resort hotel also built by Flagler, is lit so brilliantly it is a favorite among visitors.
Nights of Lights is inspired by the tradition of marking the holiday season with a single white candle burning in a window at each home during the nearly 250 years when St. Augustine served as the capital of Spanish La Florida. Today, Nights of Lights continues that tradition in a grand style reflecting the city’s 449 years of history.
Nights of Lights continues to garner accolades. In 2014, Rachel Ray magazine named St. Augustine one of the Nation’s “Twinkliest Towns.”  National Geographic declared St. Augustine one of the Top 10 Places in the World to view holiday lights in 2012 and 2013. The American Bus Association named Nights of Lights a Top 100 Event in North America..
