There are so many fun things to do in St Petersburg Florida we don't know where to start! Here is just a small sample of some of our favorite things to do or see.
Downtown St Petersburg is a fun and vibrant place to spend a day or evening. There is an amazing selection of great local restaurants along Beach Drive. Stroll along the waterfront on Bayshore Drive. Visit the St Petersburg Saturday Morning Market. Visit one of many art galleries or art museums. We especially love the Salvador Dali Museum and the Chihuly Collection. Visit Vanoy Park. Check out some other ideas on our Downtown Lifestyles page.
This is also in downtown St Petersburg, but it was so much fun it deserves a special mention. We started our tour in the southern part of downtown St Petersburg. It only took about 10 minutes for everyone to get comfortable on their Segway, and then off we went. We headed east with the tour to the shores of Tampa Bay. We then traveled up the coast with great water view walkways adjacent to Bayshore Drive. Our guide was a storehouse of knowledge and shared some fascinating facts and stories about St Pete and its history.
Weedon Island is a beautiful nature area located on Tampa Bay in the northeast quadrant of St Petersburg. There are boardwalks and trails where you can get away from it all and just enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. There is also an educational center called the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center. Take some time out to reconnect with nature and the environment. The center offers planned hikes, workshops, exhibits, and other programs for all ages. Learn more at the Weedon Island Website.
