Make the Most of Your St. Pete Visit!
Jan 2020 • Solo
As a snowbird, I make frequent visits to the Visitor Center and always find everyone knowledgeable and helpful. Stop for: *MAPS* of walking tours, bike trails, parks, downtown art districts and beaches; *RESTAURANT* menus and recommendations; *MUSEUM* locations and details; *ATTRACTIONS* in the area; *EVENTS* of all kinds happening now. I LOVE THIS PLACE. Make sure to pick up the most awesome tourism publication on the planet: GULF TO BAY, which has info on every fabulous thing about St Pete - the beaches, restaurants, museums, murals and more!☀️

My husband and I spent 4 terrific days at Christmas this year in St Petersbug. It's one of our favorite places to go whenever we want a short vacation and a great time with museums, resorts, great food and shopping. Of course you cannot neglect to mention the beautiful beaches. However, we neglected to make a reservation for Christmas dinner which brings me to the visitor center. We stopped in to get some recommendations from the staff and hopefully a reservation. The list of restaurants came up as either closed or fully booked up. But that didn't stop staff member Linda from stepping up and taking on the challenge of getting one for us which is exactly what happened after an hour or so of constant calling almost every restaurant she and the rest of the staff knew of. We had a great meal Christmas Day at the c
Corillion- Hilton's Luna. It was perfect. So when you're in St Pete make one of your first stops to the Visitor Center and say hello to a wonderful bunch of people. They're the city's best asset for getting what you need and a lot of fun too.

I do not usually write reviews for the visitor centers but will make an exception for this one. What nice, friendly, helpful people!!! We had a nice laugh waiting on our friend to try on a T-shirt. They helped us find different stores in the area. They were so friendly. I just can’t say that enough times. The store was nicely organized with great items that represent the region. Stop and say hello if you are downtown.

While planning our holiday, I needed assistance in using local transportation, to get from downtown St Petersburg to Sanding Ovations on Treasure Island. I had checked the PSTA website for the route, but was overwhelmed with so many schedules and not knowing the area. I decided to contact the St Peter Chamber Visitor Center. I sent an email with my request and by the end of day had all the information that I require to complete our journey. Thank you Shelli for your quick response and kind assistance. Will definitely stop in and make full use of your resources.

A friend and I visited the Center asking about rentals in the downtown area. We knew nothing about the area or best areas to rent. We were given an entire "tour" of where to live, price point estimates, what areas offered what features. Extremely helpful.

I had a very Unusual Request.
Aug 2019 • Solo
I live locally in St Pete and my husband and I frequent downtown often, I decided to drive down with my Olde English Bulldog Barnabus as it wasn't to hot of a day to start with, we walked around by the water for a bit and he got lots of attention from the children and adults in the park. It was starting to get warm and we started walking back towards the car it was parked on Central Ave, I always carry water for my bully although he drank it all and I was worrying about him getting over heated and he was wanting to lay down on the side walk I was getting concerned, We were right in front of the Visitors Center and I decided to go In and ask if the employees would mind watching my Bulldog for me so I can run to my car which was a couple blocks away yet, so that he would not get overheated anymore. They ladies that work there were absolutely wonderful, it was their first dog sitting request, I couldn't be more grateful. I will be stopping back in for a visit. I am so very thankful, Barnabus means the world to me, and I wouldn't just leave him with anyone. These ladies were wonderful and I am so very gracious.

friendly stop on our walking tour

We were looking for a.m. coffee before the morning market and came across this little place. We found some locally sourced artsy souvenirs and had a fun chat with the manager who told us we just missed an annual event when the locals dress in pajamas and get special discounts at the restaurants and shops. :)

Tons of information
Jul 2019 • Friends
We stopped to get maps of the St. Pete area and found SO much more. We all bought great palm frond woven hats (super for sun) in their store and then learned about the many local attractions. We continued our walking tour and had lunch nearby followed by a visit to the great museums. Definitely recommend stopping in at the Visitors Center!

We were looking for information for a museum trip for the Citrus Hills Women’s Club!
They couldn’t have been any nicer. They supplied us with gift packets for our group visit! They are so helpful with any question you have. Should be your first stop when you are visiting St. Petersburg!
