In Downtown St Petersburg, head to the Waterfront Arts District and visit the Museum of Fine Arts as well as the world famous Dali Museum. This museum is home to the most comprehensive collection of the Spanish surrealist’s work outside of Spain.
St Pete’s is surrounded by waterways so it’s the perfect place to get out on the water. Why not get closer to nature and rent a canoe or kayak or even a paddle board and glide through the peaceful mangrove trails. If you like something a bit faster, then hire a jet ski from John’s Pass Village! There are also options to go parasailing and to have a go at Jetlev’s where you can fly 30 feet above the water with a futuristic jetpack strapped to your back!
Beyond the beaches there are 26 very diverse communities that make up the St Pete’s / Clearwater area. Why not rent a bike or car and explore these communities. Some of our favorites include Tarpon Springs, a cute Greektown famous for sponge fishing and beautiful Greek food. Dunedin is of Scottish influence so why not head here to witness the Highland Games! In Dunedin you will also find the famous Dunedin Brewery which is a must for craft beer lovers.
