St Petersburg with its white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, glittering nightlife and a thriving cultural scene is located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
Relax and work on that sun tan on the stunning white beaches or head into the ocean and enjoy your favourite water sport. Have fun jet skiing, snorkeling, parasailing, diving or spear fishing. If you are looking for something a little more mellow, try SUPing (stand up paddeboarding) or kayak through the mangroves.
There is a choice of fabulous golf courses with spectacular views. Considered one of the area’s best-kept secrets, the Donald Ross-designed Dunedin Golf Club offers a challenging, traditional course at an amazing value.
There’s an abundance of shopping opportunities whether you’re looking for local flair or high end shopping. The Tyrone Square Mall in St. Pete and Westfield Countryside Mall in Clearwater showcase national brands and great shopping. If you’re looking to get some Florida favorites, head on over to John’s Pass boardwalk in Madeira Beach. The Central Arts District in St. Pete offers numerous art galleries with great local works of art.
All along the coast, beachfront restaurants offer up fresh-caught fish and seafood and there is a vast choice of multi-ethnic culinary delights. From fine dining to casual fare, there is something for everyone.
