If you're looking for a quiet New Year's Eve, St. Augustine seems the
place to be.  I made several phone calls and did many searches and
found three affairs going on in town at the local hotels:

There's New Year's 2003 at the Ponce de Leon Hotel Golf & Conference
Center, $99.00 per couple:

And then there's the Conch House Marina Resort New Year's Eve
Champagne Gala with 4 course dinner menu; no price quoted:
The Conch House also has a romantic sounding "Cruise of Lights" that
goes out nightly, including New Years Eve.  Reservations required.

Also, I found through a phone call that the historic Casa Monica will
be having a New Years Eve celebration in their 95 Cordova
Restaurant/Cobalt Lounge.  No information on the party is available
on-line, but the man at the desk said it is a dinner party with
reservations required.  The website for the hotel is:

Being a fan of Irish Pubs, I went ahead and called The White Lion Pub
on Acuna St., and talked with a girl there.  I was disappointed to
hear that rather than Celtic fiddle and harp,  a top-40 disk jockey
will be playing all your favorites from 9:00 PM till closing, which on
New Year's Eve is 1:30 AM instead of the usual 12:30 as it is for the
rest of the year.  This sounds like it will be the norm throughout the
town, according to the fine lass on the other end of the phone, who
sadly didn't sound to have even a wee bit 'o the Irish in her.

Ongoing entertainment in St. Augustine sees "Nights of Lights":
Millions of lights brighten the bayfront in this beautiful annual
display. Nightly thru January 31.

I finally placed a phone call to the local PBS affiliate in
Jacksonville, WJCT, and asked what was going on in St. Augustine.  The
person at WJCT said she didn't know of anything happening in St.
Augustine, because the hot ticket is to head the 30 miles or so over
to Jacksonville. There is a city-sponsored New Year's Eve event
happening throughout the streets in the center of Downtown.  This is
in conjunction with the Gator Bowl, with North Carolina State against
Notre Dame, and sounds like it's going to be a doozy.

For quiet, stay in St. Augustine.  For wild college football fans
yelling and cheering and screaming and brawling through the streets,
along with a live countdown to New Year's in the center of town, head
to Jacksonville.

Hope this was the information you were looking for!
