The holidays are the perfect time to check out what’s new in St. Pete/Clearwater. Discover the new St. Pete Pier, a beautiful 26-acre waterfront oasis surrounded by the sparkling blue waters of Tampa Bay. Grab a tasty bite and an ice-cold drink at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grill, serving up authentic Florida cuisine. Peruse shops and artist galleries or take a relaxing walk along the 3,000 feet of walkways. Kick back in a colorful Adirondack chair as you watch the people go by or opt for a rooftop view at Pier Teaki. Kids will enjoy running free in the Splash Pad and discovering sea life at the Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center. With so much to do and see, the new St. Pete Pier is a destination in itself.
Plus, 35 miles of sugar white sand beaches are here for you to enjoy, including St. Pete Beach, named Tripadvisor’s number one beach in the U.S. for 2021. Unwind in the warm sun, stick your toes in the soft sand, and take in the fiery orange sunset to top off your day. Whether you plan to visit for one night or a few days, there are endless hotels, vacation rentals and renovated timeless landmarks to stay.
