fergy,

I think St Pete is great for small children ( and their families!)

Most of the hotels are very family oriented, there are great family friendly places to eat, and the beach is clean.

Treasure Island is not that far, it's all accessible by beach trolley in any event.

Any more questions post again.

I am in St Pete in early October myself.

Thanks for that info!!

Can we still get to Fort Desoto Park for a day, possibly

from St. Pete? You're going in October also, I assume

the weather will still be warm as well as the ocean?

THANKS!

Ft. De Soto Park should only be about a 10 to 20 minute drive away depending on where in St. Pete you are.

In early October the water starts to get a bit chilly but the air temps when the sun is out should still be shorts weather.

fergy

Because of the climate where we live, October is warm and lovely for us!!

(It's warm to us when we go in January too!)

Fort de Soto is well worth a visit and as Chuts says, it won't take you long at all to get there from St Pete Beach.

Thanks Guys- St. Pete sounds great - I heard Treasure Island

sand is hard (painful) to walk on - probably not great for the kids..

We're in New Jersey - so I agree - the weather sounds fantastic.....

fergy, st. pete is MUCH better than treasure island. we used to stay in t.i. and for the last 3 years, we've stayed in st. pete and it's alot better- more family oriented and the water is alot closer to the hotels than in t.i. we just got back this week and we drove down into t.i. and it seemed to me that it's really getting run down and kinda seedy if you know what i mean. water will be very warm in early october as september is one of our hotest months and it won't have time to cool down too much. be sure and go to dockside daves in st. pete and have a grouper sandwich. the best! enjoy!
