Downtown St. Petersburg has a wonderful climate and a unique city center with great shopping, fine dining, theater events, parks and beaches. It’s called Sunshine City for a reason. Give in to the temptation of being outside as much as possible and enjoying life on and beside Tampa Bay.

Vinoy Park marks where Downtown meets the beach and where entertainment is frequent day and night. Gaze out onto the bay to see wildlife, including manatees, dolphins, stingrays and many bird species. The city’s namesake stretch of sand, St. Pete Beach, is frequently listed as one of the best in the U.S.

Witness a mesmerizing sunset over the bay and wander along white powder sand stretching for miles as it rolls into other city districts, each possessing its own character. The Don CeSar hotel, also called the Pink Palace, is an iconic beach fixture.

Shop on Downtown’s Corey Avenue for Florida clothing, art and mementos and dine on local or international cuisines at popular restaurants.

Walk farther inland to Central Avenue where you’ll be in the arts district, with displays such as the glasswork of renowned artist Dale Chihuly. The Salvador Dalí Museum has one of the largest collections of the artist’s work outside Europe. Nearby the Mahaffey Theater offers world-class entertainment in a magnificent venue.

Discover rising stars at the Palladium Theatre’s Side Door with its nightclub ambiance or attend a show in its larger Hough Hall.

The Downtown St. Petersburg area is a botanical paradise. The 100-year-old Sunken Gardens is the city’s oldest living museum, featuring native plants. Learn about palm trees while visiting the Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum and use this new information to identify local trees.
