Dalia's note: When it comes to saving money, the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Here's my dad to tell you about the fun night out he and my mom had last week during their visit from Ohio. It didn't cost them a dime.
Peer at the Pier on Hump Day
By Fred Wheatt
Above The Pier is an observation deck lined with binoculars. The observation deck allows you to see St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay from a totally unique, breathtaking view. Food and other vendors are available at this venue.
By the way, parking is only $3 for the entire day, and the lot is only a few minutes' walk to The Pier. You can also be valet-parked or take the free trolley.
This is a no-brainer Hump Day getaway.
