The Dec. 11-12 St. Augustine Historic Inns “Bed and Breakfast Holiday Tour” benefiting the St. Augustine Record "Empty Stocking Fund" was great fun for the 25 participating inns and the hundreds of tourgoers. Awarded the coveted Southeast Tourism Top 20 Events recognition, the Bed and Breakfast Tour is one of the highlights of the city’s two month long Nights of Lights Celebration.

The two-day event features delicious signature treats from a leading local culinary establishment that partners with each inn. Old Town Trolley, a returning sponsor, provides transportation for those who would prefer to ride to the multiple drop off points, and Winn Dixie Stores offer a complimentary grocery tote bag to each tour guest when they claim their tickets at the Visitors Information Center on San Marco Avenue at West Castillo Drive. SAHI, The Record, and Herbie Wiles Insurance, round out the generous sponsors that have made this year’s event possible and a “must do” for the 2010 holiday season!
Each year the St. Augustine Historic Inns (SAHI) select a charity to receive a gift representing a portion of the funds raised. This year they have once again selected the “Empty Stocking Fund”. This important St. Augustine Record initiative ensures the joy of the season with food and gift cards to local economically disadvantaged children and their families.
