You will be able to get by without a rental car at the Sirata. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance.

There is also a trolley that runs all the way from Pass-a-Grille, at the southernmost point of SPB, to Clearwater Beach. There are many stops at places of interest throughout the beach communities along the way, and there is a Stop near the front of the Sirata.

There is also a free ride service for the immediate area (St Pete Beach, Treasure Island and John's Pass).

Tampa Airport is only about 35-40 minutes from SPB. It is the most usual airport for arrivals, as most people can't find flights into the small St Pete/Clearwater airport (which is nearly as far away anyways!).

For transportation from TPA to SPB, have a look at SuperShuttle (shared-ride van service), and Bat's Taxi. Both are reliable. SS is generally cheaper, but Bat's is quicker and more convenient. Depends on what you're looking for!

Some good nearby restaurants are Snapper's Sea Grill, MadFish, and Skidder's, and for casual beachfront outdoor dining, I really like RumRunners, right at the Sirata. (Love their papaya chicken salad!)

Also....St Petersburg and St Pete Beach are two separate municipalities (side-by-side), with two separate forums, so you might want to have a look at the Beach Forum, listed as Saint Pete Beach.
