On the Gulf of Mexico in west central Florida, St. Petersburg is home to internationally renowned museums and cultural venues as well as conveniently located within two hours driving distance from most well known Florida attractions. A visit to the Salvador Dalí Museum or John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art on one day can be followed by an excursion another day to Busch Gardens Tampa or the full array of attractions in the Orlando area (Legoland, Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Harry Potter World, and more).
Historic Ybor City, one of only two National Historic Landmark Districts in Florida, is located in Tampa, just a quick drive northeast across the bridge over Tampa Bay. Ybor City has been known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter for over a century, offering an exotic blend of aromas, flavors, sights and sounds. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay Lightning draw hundreds of thousands of football and hockey fans to the Tampa area.
The State of Florida offers an endless list of day trip adventures, nature shows, sandy beaches, watersports activities, and recreational parks and trails to the resident and visitor alike. Whether it’s by foot, bike, kayak or car, whether you’re the solo traveler or part of a group excursion – St. Petersburg is at the center of it all.
