St. Petersburg Travel Tips

St. Petersburg, known as “Sunshine City,” is the up-and-coming cultural hub of Florida’s central west coast. Situated just 30 miles across the bay from the city of Tampa, downtown St. Petersburg is bursting with hip restaurants, breweries, galleries, and boutique shops. The Salvador Dalí Museum on the waterfront is home to the largest collection of Dalí’s surrealist work outside of Europe. Year-round pleasant temperatures make it easy to enjoy a round of golf or a visit to the century-old Sunken Gardens. Our St. Petersburg vacation rentals are conveniently located near the bustling downtown area and peaceful beaches nearby. Guests can explore funky shops and eateries at John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk and the crystal-clear water of the Gulf of Mexico is just a quick drive west of downtown St. Petersburg.

Relax on the white sands of Madeira Beach, kayak through mangroves at Egmont Key State Park, and try to spot one of 300 bird species native to Fort De Soto Park spread across 5 interconnected islands. Feel at home in St. Petersburg while staying at one of Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels® St. Petersburg resorts, beach condos or private vacation homes!
