Spend your days lounging on one of America’s top white sand beaches, partaking in an abundance of water activities or even taking a WWII tank for a spin. The options are endless in the St. Petersburg and Clearwater area. No matter the season, there is always something exciting to do. Stroll through a turn-of-the-century fishing village, catch your own dinner from a pier or sip your way through the craft brewery scene. Whether it is a rejuvenating, family or exhilarating getaway you are looking for, you will find it in St. Petersburg & Clearwater.
Pier 60 at Clearwater Beach offers lots to do both day and night. Stroll the massive pier during the day for some of the most impressive ocean views; visit the bait shop to get outfitted with everything you need to catch Spanish mackerel, or let the kids tire themselves out at the massive playground. Stay put for "Sunsets on Pier 60" a nightly event where local street performers and artisans gather.
Beaches surround you in the St. Pete/Clearwater area, and there’s a sandy nook for every taste. Clearwater Beach is the most popular and liveliest with non-stop beach sports and the BeachWalk promenade winding past seafood restaurants, surf shops, and hotels. For a more subdued beach going experience check out Shell Key Preserve. Located on Castaway Island, this beach is completely undeveloped and only accessible via ferry or private boat. Also worth visiting are St. Pete Beach, Madeira Beach, and Honeymoon Island State Park.
