Saint Petersburg/ Clearwater

Hello! I'm traveling with my 2 children (9&7). We are flying into Tampa and driving to visit relatives in Dunnellon for two days. We would like to return to the St Pete/Clearwater area for 5 days. I will be 5 months pregnant. I am looking for a hotel on or near the beach that is clean, has a pool, child friendly, close or on the beach and close to shopping and restaurants. I'm looking for something around the 150/night range. Any suggestions on hotels and things to do with the kids would be greatly appreciated.

Manchester, United...

hi there.

i stayed at a place called The Gulfside Resort a while back which is basically 8 units which are divided into smaller rooms suitable for 2 adults and a few larger ones that will be more than suficient for you and your kids.

It was run by a lovely couple from Chicago and has a fantastic pool and is about a 2 min walk from the beach and is close to the shops.

its also down a side road so nice and peaceful

Take a look at www.sunriseresortflorida.com.

2 Bedroom 2 Bathroom condos. Restaurants within walking distance and if you stay at the Sunrise Resort you can also use the facilities like the pedal boats that go around the hotel at the Tradewinds island Grand for a small fee

Some other ideas, bowling which is about 10 mins in the car, crazy golf 10 min walkins. cinema 5 mins in car to Corey Ave or 20 mins to Tyrone Square Mall wher there is a larger cinema and loads of shops with the usual food court. You will fine more info in the lobby of wherever you decide to stay. and www.floridasbeach.com
