Vacations in St. Petersburg

The area and getting around

Fun for everyone at St. Petersburg

A short drive north will get you to the emerald waters and fiery sunsets of Clearwater Beach. Enjoy fresh-off-the-boat seafood at the innumerable waterfront dining spots. Another top getaway is Madeira Beach, (locally known as Mad Beach) home to the cinematic John's Pass Village & Boardwalk. From here, it's easy to embark on a dolphin or pirate-themed cruise, or even chill out at the floating tiki bars. For a more rustic experience, try the beach at Sand Key Park where endangered bird species are frequently spotted.

Culinary surprises and a pulsating nightlife

Beach cafés, live music bars and chic rooftop lounges abound in St. Pete, and the nightlife options along Central Avenue and Downtown offer a truly local and funky experience. Recommended is the city's longest running live music bar Ruby's Elixir - a must for jazz, funk, rock and blues aficionados. If you fancy sampling pilsners and stouts at 25+ local breweries, the Gulp Coast Craft Beer Trail won't disappoint. Finally, infuse some romance into your sojourn with al fresco dinners at the seaside restaurants.

Travelers and activities

St. Petersburg for the art fans

St. Pete's walls explode with color and creativity thanks to the 70+ gigantic murals that adorn Central Avenue and the Downtown area. Another gem is the fantastical Dali Museum where you'll encounter melting clocks, mustaches, and all things Dali. Things get more surreal at the Morean Glass Studio where visitors can watch artists chipping away at glass sculptures. For some old school art, pop into the Museum of Fine Arts whose collection spans over five millennia - there's Monet and Georgia O'Keeffe too.

A multitude of festivals

January features the iconic John's Pass Seafood Festival on Madeira Beach - a smorgasbord of fresh seafood, live music and art. This is followed by St. Petersburg Fine Art Festival where local artists showcase stunning works spanning glass, fiber art, and more. Summer kicks in with St. Pete's Pride Fest, Florida's largest LGBTQ celebration. Soak in sultry jazz notes at October's Clearwater Jazz Holiday festival, a four-day event. The year ends with magnificently lit boat parades along the coast.

Did you know that in the 1960s, St. Petersburg held the Guinness World Record for the longest stretch of sunshine at 768 days!
