Your guide to St Petersburg holidays
This rapidly growing city offers the largest collection of work by Salvador Dali outside of Spain, in its sleek Salvador Dali Museum. The Chihuly Collection is another must-see attraction here, showcasing Dale Chihuly’s genius blown glassworks in an airy space. Foodies are well catered for with the 20,000 square feet of artisanal cuisine at Locale Market, and afterwards you can shop until you drop in Beach Drive’s boutiques.
Along with all of the urban attractions on offer here, St Petersburg is renowned for its top-rated beaches. Sitting between the waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, the city’s beaches offer clean sand lined by swaying palm trees and high-class resorts. Fort De Soto combines beaches with picnic areas, water sports, and a historic fort for a fun day out. You can pull up a beach blanket or sun lounger to top up your tan here, or embark on a sunset dinner cruise to admire the views from a different perspective.
It’s easy to spend the entirety of a holiday in St Petersburg on one of its beaches, each one with its own personality. White sands and guaranteed sunshine offer a little sliver of paradise in the heart of Tampa Bay. The St Petersburg Municipal Beach is one popular option, located on neighbouring Treasure Island. Facilities include beach volleyball courts, snack bars, and shower and changing facilities. Maximo Park is also popular with families, offering two playgrounds and miles of biking trails skirting along the shores.
Fort De Soto Beach is perhaps the most notable in St Petersburg, located on the southern tip of the city. It has even been rated as the number one beach in the USA. Sprawling out over 900 acres over five islands, the park also includes campgrounds, nature trails, canoe trails, and a full-service pier. Stroll along the promenade with an ice cream and admire panoramic views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge to enjoy the best of a Florida beach holiday experience.
