Saint Pete Beach
In a nutshell
Make a short stay on your road trip!
When you need a break from the sun and surf, step across the street and "take a walk into history".A quaint museum, small enough to keep your interest, it houses many artifacts and photographs of the beginnings of the tourist trade on the beaches. Info about the wildlife...
Visit the Egmont Key
While there can be a dearth of things to do on St. Pete Beach, save lie on the sand and soak up rays, there are some opportunities to explore. One is the nearby Egmont Key. This island was originally developed as a military base during the Spanish-American War, Fort Dade,...
St. Petersburg Pier
A very long pier with restaurants and shops at the end. People also fish off the pier. Looks great at night.
I was certified for scuba diving at age 13 but since I have not been diving in the past 5 years, I decided to get recertified. My boyfriend also decided to get certified so we took our classes in Virginia and decided to do our open water dives in Florida. Just as a warning,...
While Tampa is about 30-40 minutes from St. Pete, it is worth visiting. The aquarium has an amazing amount of fish. I took so many pictures and I found this to be one of the better aquariums I have visited.
Shell Key is a quick boat ride from St. Pete. The beach is more of a laying out and looking for shells beach rather than for swimming. There are a lot of boats and jet skis coming close to shore which I found annoying for snorkeling. However, if you want to chance it, you...
Fort Desoto Park
It is ranked the number one beach in the U.S. for a reason. The sand is white and powdery and the water is clear and blue. The fact that it is a park gives you lots of places to go so the beach is not too crowded. Visiting the actual fort built during the Spanish American...

Bella Habana Restaurant: Good Cuban Food
When thinking of eating in Florida, the first thing that comes to mind is Cuban food. So, I was definitively looking forward to having Cuban food while I was at St. Pete Beach. Just a few blocks down from the hotel was Bella Habana, a little gem of a place on Gulf Blvd. This...
Agave: Good, Delicious Mexican Food in Florida
Being from California, I spend a lot of time criticizing Latin American food as I travel and move across the country. It is ingrained in me, I can't help it. So when I find a place that achieves a good balance of authenticity, price, and taste, I celebrate. And such is...
Patrick's Bayside Grill: Fresh and delicious!
Patrick's is a very small restaurant on Gulf Blvd. It only has about 15 tables and a bar. The food is wonderful! We ordered steak bruschetta for an appetizer and it was great. The steak just melted in our mouths and the garlic and fresh tomato were awesome. The service was...

the food at Durango,s is fantastic you can watch the chef cook your steak over the oak fired grill and the ribs are to die for the are so tasty
the full rack of baby ribs are delicious the meat just falls off the bones and they do a great salad bowl with your complimentary...
Snappers: Make sure to eat outside
First impression--the stained glass on the front doors is beautiful. The inside is very classy looking but it was nice to sit outside in the warm air. The menu was reasonably priced and the food was excellent. Good service too. There was a wait when we were there so make a...
Maritana Grille: Heaven
Another cannot miss. It is a 4 star restaurant inside the Don Cesar Hotel. While it is fine dining and thus expensive, it is less expensive than I expected because of its location and ambience. Eating in comfy booths with pillows next to a tank filled with lionfish was neat....
Habana Cafe: Like being in Havana
Habana Cafe has been voted the best Cuban restaurant in the Tampa Bay area for the past 5 years. That should say something. The food is great! I loved the plaintains and sangria. In fact, I bought the cookbook published by the owner and the hot sauce. It is a place you...
Ybor City: Party Party Party
Ybor city is located in Tampa but it is way better than trying to party in St. Pete. There are streets and streets of clubs. We went to Atmosphere which had a wooden dancefloor that rotated. No thanks--not good for heels or people drinking! The cover charge is $10 for most...
Harp and Thistle Pub: large, local-friendly Irish pub
I came to Harp and Thistle to watch a Celtic-Rock band Rathkeltair perform around dinner time. Arriving early to get seats, my group dined and drank for about 3 hours until the entertainment finally arrived. Oh, that was plenty of time alright. This Irish pub has a decent...
Few Transportation Options
HasTowelWillTravel 367 reviews
There were some things that did bother me about the area, one of which was the lack of transportation at St. Pete Beach. There was little available transportation for those of us bereft of a car. Taxis were there, but they were expensive. And the Trolley was slow and infrequent, which led to a lot of standing on street corners and waiting. So keep this in mind when planning for your vacation, and either bring your own car or rent one when you arrive.

Go to a movie
Go to a movie at the Beach Theater. I was attracted by the Art Deco design and the blue neon light. It's a groovy theater in St. Pete Beach that shows independent films, server Hagen Daas ice cream bars, beer and wine, and is actually a landmark!315 Corey...
trickling down the throat
the sweet, sweet liquid called Guinness....Ok technically I'm at a wannabe Irish Pub here in St. Pete Beach, so there's only so much I can expect from their beer. I'm 1/4 Celt and that side of me shines thru when I sit down in a bar. Sipping on a cold, dark one while...
