The St. Augustine Lighthouse can be spotted all across the city, and not just because the light tower is so tall. All throughout town, the Lighthouse decorates signs and logos for many local businesses, organizations and events.
The Lighthouse shows up everywhere, from the St. Augustine Record to Old City Electric. The tower lights up churches, like Anastasia Baptist Church and the Lighthouse Church of God, and schools like R. B. Hunt Elementary. It illuminates the offices of local businesses—Lighthouse Realty, Leonardi’s Nursery, Jackson Law Group—and practitioners, like Lighthouse Chiropractic, St. Augustine OBGYN and Anastasia Eye Associates. You can even eat under the glow of the Lighthouse at restaurants like Anastasia Diner. The Lighthouse even brightens events, such as the Sing Out Loud Festival and the St. Augustine Songwriters Festival. These are only a handful of the places that use the Lighthouse as their personal beacon of light.
All these lighthouses connect us all to the uniting symbol of the St. Augustine Lighthouse. Wherever you go, the Lighthouse is a representation of pride in our home of St. Augustine. Whether it shows up in your name or your logo, the Lighthouse is honored to shine a light in all areas of your life.
