I loved coming to the Pier with my family. We went on a beautiful sunny day and it was nice to stroll @ the Pier and have lunch! Taking the trolly there is free & very fun!

Parking at The Pier (either Dolphin or Penguin pkg lot) is $3 ($5 for special events) but the free trolley services makes up for the charge. You can take the red trolley all the way to the end of the pier where there is food available including ice cream, the yellow trolley takes you to shopping areas. We walked up & down Beach Ave, checked out the stores, bought a couple of snacks--the Gelato is delishous--then caught the trolley back to our car. Had a great time & the weather was perfect!

On its last leg as new Pier has been approved by St. Petersburg City Council. Needs to be torn down as it emulates the 50's and not in a good way

If you are on the pier and you have time to kill, then okay maybe you go. It is definitely a best a once and done visit.

The Pier and restaurants are the attraction, the "aquarium" is really small and just a few fish tanks, and not worth the price of admission, honestly it should be free, or maybe a buck or 2. The upside down triangle building is a landmark but I understand it is going to be replaced soon, so try to check out the old school Florida charm that it is before it's too late.
