“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Beautiful area hidden in the middle of a busy town. Walk the boardwalk and admire the views. Great cultural museum type building that they have exhibits, classes, etc. in. Friendly folks inside too. Historical archeological spot. Great for kids to experience. Heck, I enjoyed it!!! I don't believe there was any cost to go there, but there may be a cost for some of the classes. Wear sunscreen and use bug spray!!!

“So fun for kayaking (be sure it's high tide, tho')”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

This place is so, so beautiful and I kayaked the tunnels in 2011 with a local St. Pete Meetup group. Go! Enjoy! Just go at high tide like we did so you don't end up carrying the kayak instead of paddling. :)

“Easy walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We went there in the am for a walk on the boardwalk. It was breezy even though sunny. It's a fun, easy walk. Enjoy the fresh air.

Only been to Weeden Island a few times and I definetely enjoyed it. Wether you kayak, hike, or just admire the awesome views, won't be disappointed. The observation deck is nice.

“"Oasis in the city"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

You don't have to go outside the city limits of St. Petersburg to find one of our areas most beautiful natural sites. Weedon Island Preserve offers a visitor's center, nature trails and boardwalks, fishing, kayaking, canoeing on Tampa Bay and the enjoyment of seeing nature at her best! Bring your own water vehicle or rent one. There is a nice launch area with cleaning station and restrooms. The fishing pier is right here too. An awesome place to relax and explore Mother Nature!
