Florida's Sunshine City
Located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, St. Petersburg boasts an average of 361 sunny days a year. Its superb weather and relatively low prices have made the city a popular retirement destination with a variety of outdoor things to do. In recent years, however, young people have been flocking to St. Pete, contributing to its burgeoning arts scene. The area boasts scenic sandy beaches and a waterfront park system that stretches 11 km (7 mi), where residents and visitors on vacation relax and play. The bustling downtown area, home to many stores and restaurants along with several museums and attractions, is just a 16 km (10 mi) drive from the beach. Use our custom trip planner: St. Petersburg and all its delights await.
