Looking out at the iconic shores of Tampa Bay, the city of St. Petersburg is a huge seaside metropolis that knows no bounds in terms of how to entertain, from world-famous museums to breathtaking parks. See it in style by reserving a ride that best fits the situation; honeymooner’s sedan, business travelers limousine, or loving family’s SUV. Those looking to just keep close to St. Pete-Clearwater Airport should reserve a room along Ulmerton Road, located just south of the facility and home to stays that offer shuttles, the highest-rated stay being SpringHill Suites. Also close to the city of Tampa, the St. Petersburg gets a lot of pop-ins from visitors across the bay, making ferries and water taxis a must for those looking to experience both sides of the aquatic coin - experience the beauty of the bay by hopping aboard the Cross Bay Ferry on 2nd Avenue.
Get to know the beauty of the region in and out, starting with what was left of the region before there was any city, from the 3,000+ acres of trails that make up Weedon Island Preserve to the practically untouched landscape at the historic Sunken Gardens. Delve into the art scene as well, checking out world-renowned antiquities mixed with modern pieces at the Museum of Fine Arts, afterward moving onto the bizarre surrealist works at The Dali Museum, which houses some of the artist’s greatest works in a vivid glass panel building. End the evening with a dinner that makes your heart sign, looking out at Tampa Bay from Red Mesa Cantina upmarket Mexican, or get a feel for the region’s local German culture at Hofbrauhaus St. Petersburg, which serves classic Bavarian fare in a beer hall.
