With miles and miles of scenic coastlines along the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay, and Boca Ciega Bay, St. Petersburg's biggest attraction is its spectacular beaches. Whether you're looking for a lively shore packed with like-minded sunbathers and water sports enthusiasts, shallow waters where children can safely splash around, or a quiet spot where you can catch up on your reading and snooze the day away, you will find a beach that fits the bill perfectly. You won't fall short of entertainment options while on vacation in St. Pete's and a walk through the downtown area will reveal streets packed with art galleries, theatres and museums. When you're done with the day's sightseeing, St. Petersburg's nightclubs, bars, and restaurants will also leave you spoiled for choice with their wide variety.
History buffs should not miss out on a trip to the Florida Holocaust Museum, art aficionados can drop by the Salvador Dali Museum, and those looking for a relaxed afternoon can find the perfect spot at the centrally located Sunken Gardens. If you're searching for sports and adventure, there are hiking trails aplenty in the Fort De Soto Park area, golf courses, fishing facilities, and even sailboats for rent if that's what how you want to spend your St. Petersburg vacations.
