Each year, Cummer Beaches partners with the Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach for exciting bus tours to museums and cultural sites throughout the southeast. These programs offer a broader look at art and culture and expand the world view and experiences of those who participate.
Join Cummer Beaches for a special tour of Dressing Downton: Changing Fashion for Changing Times at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine. The exhibition highlights fashion from one of the most widely-watched television dramas, "Downton Abbey." See 36 period costumes and jewelry from the hit series paired to perfection in engaging vignettes among Otto Lightner's collection of turn-of-the-century fine art and period furniture.
Enjoy a delicious luncheon at the historic Old City House Inn and Restaurant, winner of the Taste of St. Augustine "Best Upscale Taste" and "People's Choice" Awards. Your guest of honor will be the Mayor of St. Augustine, The Honorable Nancy Shaver, and you can learn about St. Augustine's secrets from special guest speaker, historian Dr. Susan Parker.
After lunch, enjoy a private tour of historic St. Augustine in your own private Old Town Trolley followed by a tasting at the historic Ice Plant, built in 1927, before boarding the motor coach for the short ride back home.
