Make your trip even more memorable with these ideas!
The only thing better than being in sunny Florida at the tail end of a cold winter is being there for the Players Championship golf tournament. After watching the pros, here are some other terrific activities to include in your trip to Ponte Vedra Beach.
- Chartered boat tour or fishing
- Ghost tours
- Winery or distillery tour
- Catch a concert
- Play a round of golf
Chartered boat tour or fishing
How about taking in the salt air along Florida’s beautiful coast in your own private chartered boat? A romantic sunset cruise with cocktails would be an excellent way to wind down the day. Or perhaps organizing a fishing trip excursion for your group is more your speed. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as spending some time on the open water and leaving your cares on the shore!
See the spooky side of north Florida on a ghost tour. St. Augustine and the surrounding areas are known for their history and subsequent ghost sightings and other-worldly encounters. If you dare, spend an evening with an expert guide who will take you through the eerie and mysterious history of this “spirited” place.
Winery or distillery tour
Try a different kind of “spirit” at City Gate Spirits, a “micro-distillery crafting moonshine, vodka, rum, and whiskey inspired by the flavors of Florida.” The San Sebastian Winery also offers complimentary tours and wine tastings. As a premier Florida winery, they are experts in sparkling and dessert wines from Muscadine grapes.
Catch a concert
Take in a concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall! Built in 2011 on the foundation of an old Baptist church, “the renovation and repurpose of the sacred space led to the creation of a flexible entertainment venue,” according to the venue’s website. The week of the Players Championship, the concert hall will host folk-country singer Rodney Crowell, Motown legends The Drifters and The Platters, and Graham Nash of the acclaimed folk-rock group Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.
Play a round of golf
While you’re not likely to find a tee time at the famed TPC Sawgrass course, there are plenty of world-class golf courses in and around Ponte Vedra Beach.
The aptly named Lagoon course at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club is noted for its many lagoons and lakes throughout the course, making this an excellent opportunity to enjoy the scenery and perhaps lose a few golf balls in the process. According to Golf Pass, “There are also several elevated greens with high-lipped bunkers that demand both strategy and precision.” The Yards course boasts a unique playing experience on its “front yard” and “backyard” courses, as well as a state-of-the-art practice facility.
