Looks like a beautiful place to hang out, but due to COVID-19, a lot of places were closed. Also on a Sunday night in August at almost 10 pm there were protestors chanting and marching down the street. I thought that seemed a little late for a protest on a Sunday night. Kind of a big turnoff.

Starting with the Saturday fresh market for a mixed bag of veggies and homemade goods by the locals. Move on to a light breakfast at Cassis or 2nd & Second. Then spend a walking tour of Central Avenue boutique shops.

I just love St Petersburg. It’s a wonderfully vibrant city. There is always something happening. I enjoy walking all around the park, beach dr, but especially Central av . It goes all the way from downtown to the beach and has a number of different neighborhoods. We enjoy stopping at each area and checking out the areas. There is an antique area and the downtown is changing to a very modern artsy area. We found some really nice boutiques and did a little shopping last week. There are some very nice restaurants we have visited before and plan to go back soon.

I really love the look and feel of downtown St Petersburg. I’m not sure what it is, maybe its the architecture or the salt sea air, but it’s definitely got a Mediterranean flavor to it: sort of a mix between between Nice and Monica but on a smaller scale. People were out and about early enjoying coffee and a croissant at the sidewalk cafe’s much like they do in the south of France. Others were strolling along the harbor or sitting under the banyan tree soaking up the sun. And lets not forget the swish boutiques where one can easily part with ones hard earned money. I haven't even started on the Dali or Chihuly Museum or the free Downtown Looper Trolley that takes you there, Dang but I want to move here.

We enjoyed walking around and dining. The water is nearby and there are some historic buildings. The are a lot of restaurants and bars. The parking was reasonable for us. We stayed in a garage near Datz and it was 1 hour free and $1 per hour after the first hour.

We enjoyed out stay in St. Petersburg and felt VERY safe wandering thru the downtown area day and night. Lots of great things to do and see, a beautiful waterfront, lots of nightlife and many parks within walking distance including lots of opportunities to be near or on the water. The downtown area is full of GREAT restaurants.

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.

Looper free trolley gives an excellent view of the city’s museums, restaurants, theaters, The Pier ,supermarkets and the rest. Quick transport later. Trolley Drivers are friendly and good ambassadors to the city. I took several maps and gave them to newcomers. A real asset. The Sunrunner bus to St. Pete Beach beats driving and is fast. General commuter traffic is heavier than expected. Beaches beautiful. Most St. Pete residents are from somewhere else and are happy to talk up their adopted Sunshine City.

Saint Petersburg is the little known gem of Florida. Very friendly, tons and tons of things to do- check out "I love the Burg" for a huge list of ideas, great restaurants all over the city and art, art, art, art. Also lots of local bars and breweries play music for free-- I love this place !

Rapidly growing city that is absolutely beautiful. It's relatively small, so getting around doesn't take much walking. Unfortunately, that means that downtown streets can become highly congested during peak hours, so finding parking can be difficult.
