Along with beautiful beaches, St. Petersburg attracts visitors with the Salvador Dali Museum, Fort De Soto Park and the St. Petersburg Pier. Presently, the St. Petersburg Pier building is closed. The pier approach and walkways are open to walking and biking along the waterfront. The approach area has a boat/sailboat/electric boat business, the St. Petersburg Museum of History, two large parking lots and stops for the St. Petersburg Trolley service. Beach Drive is a block away and features a variety of dining and shopping opportunities.
The city, which glimmers between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay, is known for its warm weather and delightful breezes. Clearly a cultural center and family favorite, St. Petersburg offers an array of interactive, art, science and natural attractions to spark your group's curiosity, while its beaches – some of America's best – offer major fun in the sun. Don’t miss the newly gentrified downtown strip of park-side cafes and other establishments. And, oh, by the way, Central Florida's theme parks are just a short drive away.
