Link to Hotel

St. Petersburg is a city on Florida's gulf coast, part of the Tampa Bay area. It's known for its pleasant weather (hence its “Sunshine City” nickname), making it popular for golfing, boating, fishing and beachgoing. Its waterfront parks host the Dali Museum, featuring surrealist works of art; the Museum of Fine Arts, with works ranging from ancient to contemporary; and Mahaffey Theater, home of the Florida Orchestra.

Also on the waterfront, the Chihuly Collection houses sculptor Dale Chihuly's ornate glass creations. Sidewalk cafes, galleries, and boutiques line the streets of Downtown, which is also the site of Sundial, a retail, dining, and entertainment complex, and the Sunken Gardens, a century-old botanic garden. Nearby is Tropicana Field, where baseball’s Tampa Bay Rays play, and the 245-acre Boyd Hill Nature Preserve on Lake Maggiore offers trails and bird-watching. Beach options include the white-sands of Fort De Soto Park, just south of the city; it's spread across 5 islands and includes a circa-1900 fort, trails, and a campground.
