St. Pete has two excellent museums:

St.Pete Museum of Fine Arts - if you go the first full weekend of the month and show your Bank of America card you get in free ( $20)
Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg

Largest collection of Salvatore Dali art in the world; even if you are not a big fan it is amazing.

Always visit The Hurricane Restaurant at the end of St. Pete Beach for beers. Rooftop view of the beach to Clearwater.

For some POSH cocktails visit the Don Cesar Hotel at sunset

We stay at the Bon-Aire in St Pete Beach, Take the Calypso Queen boat ride across from Clearwater Beach (Lunch Cruise) Parking at the dock, get ticket from cruise window. Crab claw season go to Frenchy's . Visit Dunedin a really nice little town. There is also Johns Pass with shops, restaurants, boat rides etc. Hundreds of places to go and see. Go to Trip Adviser and check things to do, see and eat. The Bon-Aire is right on the beach best deal around. Family owned over 50 yrs. Len & Mary Any questions PM me

Although I am a big believer in Tampa, I must confess that if I were looking for the most beautiful sunsets into the Gulf of Mexico, St. Pete Beach is the place to go.

On the other hand, the Ulele Restaurant in Tampa has won all kinds of awards for elegance in dining. Open Tables has scored it as among the Top 100 Best Restaurants in America. It is located along the Tampa Riverwalk, a nice place to visit in itself, in the restored historic Tampa Waterworks building. Ulele is a property of the famous Columbia Restaurant Group.

The restaurant is named for the nearby Ulele Springs, named after an Indian Princess said to have lived in Tampa in the 1700s.

For unusual sights, the sidewalk along Bayshore Boulevard in Tampa is claimed to be the longest unbroken sidewalk in the world, extending for over four and a half miles. Park on a side street and stroll along, or go to the pier in the park at the south end of the walkway and have a snack at the snack bar.
