St Petersburg Holidays 2023 & 2024
St. Petersburg is a delightful city in Florida situated just 23 miles southeast of Clearwater. Part of Florida’s sun coast region, this waterfront paradise is perfect for couples or those seeking a family getaway with a dash of luxury. Enjoy a break on the tranquil beaches, take a trip to one of the many iconic attractions or enjoy a bite to eat at one of the countless local restaurants and cafes. St. Petersburg is one of Florida’s most beautiful locations and is popular with locals and tourists all year round.
St Petersburg is home to a selection of unique and immersive museums. The most iconic and famous landmark is the Heritage Museum. One of the world's most distinguished and prominent attractions is a must-see when visiting the city. When you spot the geodesic glass bubble, you'll know instantly that it is the Dal? Museum, where visitors can admire the achievements and captivating life-long work of the late Spanish Salvador Dal?.
With a vast choice of historical and cultural museums, art exhibits and even an enthralling children's museum, planning a trip to at least one of these popular locations is a must when visiting St. Petersburg.
With its soft and sandy beaches, St Petersburg is the ideal location to kick back and relax. Whether you want to relax on a sunbed with a good book or enjoy some of the many activities St. Petes Beach has to offer, you’re sure to find something to please everyone. Take advantage of the beautiful emerald green water and drift off on your very own kayak or paddleboard, where you'll experience the best views of the luxury beaches or hop on board and set sail on one of the many boat excursions and enjoy the picturesque views. Pass-a-Grille Beach is the city's most relaxed and quiet area, ideal for those who want to get away from it all and really take in the breathtaking surroundings. If high tide slides and mini golf are more your things, then head to Tradewinds Island Grand Resort, where you can purchase day passes and make full use of the beach cabana and parking facilities.
As a beachfront city, you would expect to sample some of the finest seafood in the area. I can tell you St. Petersburg does not disappoint! With a boatload of new restaurants (pun intended) arriving on the scene, there are plenty of different cuisines to satisfy all appetites. Shells Seafood Restaurant, MadFish and RumFish Grill are amongst some of the most popular seafood restaurants. You'll also find a range of welcoming beach bars, including Harry's Beach Bar, Jimmy B’s and Postcard Inn. The bars come alive with friendly locals and tourists enjoying live music throughout the week.
Some of the latest additions include; Wild Child, a neighbourhood bistro and cocktail bar, The Nosh Pit, a New York-style Jewish deli, and Burnt Ends Tiki Bar, where barbeque, tropical and tiki unite under the same roof.
