Beautiful Ritzy

Drove thru on way to see the beach and came across a bridge to see a giant pink castle near expensive homes and it was immaculate and smelled of money. Turned the corner to see a line of tourist mom and pops motels, dollar and liquor stores, etc. An extreme mixture of the wealthy and those wishing they were.

Take time to enjoy the waterfront and downtown, St. Pete. Great shops, places to eat, drink, and enjoy. Wonderful museums as well. Well worth the walk.

Skip it!
Jul 2021 • Solo
This place is overrated! Crowded and touristy. Lacks charm and even beauty. It’s trashy with a lot of homeless people on drugs. The restaurants are overpriced as well. The meter maid even issued me a parking ticket when I clearly had 1.5 hours left on the meter, and there’s no way to fight it since I was just visiting and appeals can only be done in person. Skip this area of St. Petersburg’s! Okay well I’ll give it two stars for the nice art museum I had gone to visit, and the one inexpensive yet tasty Mediterranean restaurant I loved called Mio’s.

I love all the attractions in downtown St. Petersburg, realizing how close everything was and how easy it was to travel to all the different spots in the area. From dining, to sightseeing, every place was an enjoyable experience!!!

Entertaining, Lovely, Easy City to Visit
May 2021
So here is what I love about Downtown St. Petersburg,it is very easy to park in a variety of public parking buildings, that at $8 per day ($3 on Saturday when the Farmer's Market is going on) I thought was very reasonable. Then, once I parked, I could easily walk to an extensive variety of restaurants, waterfront parks, museums, fine art galleries, shops and the river walk which is a beautiful place to get in some extra steps. Having visited many good sized cities where just finding a parking place is a nightmare, I have really appreciated St. Petersburg and how easy it is to visit. It's a beautiful city and well worth spending a day just walking around. The downtown area is just off the bay, so great breezes help keep down the heat. Favorite museum so far is the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art, favorite restaurant, Mio's. For those who just can't stand paying for parking, there were street slots, but apparently the folks who live here know where they are! As a Senior Solo Female traveler I felt very safe.

St. Petersburg is pretty sketch at best. Seedy area. VERY little shopping. Would not go back here again.

Small quaint city
Jan 2021
If you're accustom to bigger and faster cities like, NY, LA, Philly you will run through this city in 1-2 days. There are a lot of great Mom & Pop shops, galleries and restaurants. St. Pete has a lot of residential high-rises and apartment complexes, but if you know where to go you will always find a great view and something to do.

Quiet Residential Area
Dec 2020 • Couples
The downtown area has large buildings but they seem to be more residential. There are a number of shops, galleries and restaurants in this peaceful and pretty area. Driving through is pretty easy without a lot of traffic when we visited.
