St Petersburg, Florida
At one time the St Petersburg/Clearwater area had earned the moniker “God’s waiting room” for reasons that probably need no explanation.
My how times have changed. The once sleepy downtown, really only significant as being home to The Vinoy and Tropicana Field, has become the epicenter of change. Central Avenue now hosts brew pubs and eclectic shops in addition its more well-known antique shops.
St Petersburg Florida is now “The Burg”. There’s a mural tour, the Dali Museum and the Chihuly Collection at the Morean Arts Center. The new Pier promises to have something for everyone, no matter how much money is in your pocket.
You can avoid FOMO and sign up for a daily dose of the Burg here or make sure you never miss what’s happening on the food scene by signing up to receive updates from St Pete Foodies.
