Planning your stay:

St. Petersburg is nicknamed the Sunshine City.  In recent years it’s seen a fierce arts and cultural revival, which can be seen as you stroll through the city’s lively downtown area.  Visit the Salvador Dalí Museum Museum, the pride of this waterfront city along with more arts-oriented attractions, including the Dale Chihuly Collection, the Fine Arts Museum, the young artist hub known as the 600 Block, where eateries and bars attract crowds in the evening, or tour the unique and beautiful wall art along Central Ave N.  The Grand Central District offers some unique vintage and antiques shopping.  St. Pete’s west coast offer miles of gorgeous white beaches as well as dining, nightlife, and phenomenal sunsets. Nearby beach towns include St. Pete Beach, Treasure Island, Madeira Beach, and Redington Shores. No trip to this area is complete without a visit to the remote, pristine beaches of Fort De Soto.
