Beach Boulevard

Reviewed By BeverlyZ1008 - Indian Harbour Beach, Florida

I'm not a shopper, but I do like walking down the tree-lined street and admiring how this town has been revitalized since I graduated from high school here over 50 years ago. I also enjoy the side streets for the same reason.

From the initial call to reserve a boat to meeting the team back on the dock after a day of adventure, the experience with Tierra Verde Boat Rental was fantastic. Everyone was professional, helpful, and positive. The cost was reasonable and there were no unexpected, additional fees or charges. The boat was clean. Truly we had a fabulous day exploring.

I took my family here to celebrate my 60th birthday. This was my favorite day! I loved watching my grandchildren see the beach for the first time! This beach is very clean!
We rented chairs and umbrellas from a very nice college age man.
There are many good and drink options all within a short walk.
They have free clean bathrooms.
They also have a giant water slide for a small fee.

Have been attending this intimate theater setting for years- performances are extremely well done- not a bad seat in the house- this may not have been their best play ever but certainly in the top three. would give my highest recommendation.

Reviewed By vhughes6839 - St. Petersburg, Florida

This theatre is very small but not cramped, just intimate. We love the talent that is here and the performances never disappoint. They do serve drinks outside just before you enter the theatre and snaks, there are also restrooms that are clean for use. If you are late you will have to wait to enter as they will not let you disturb the scene that is being performed which is a good thing, nothing worse than trying to see the performance to have people parading in front of you making you miss it.

Saint Pete Beach

Gorgeous, laid-back St. Pete Beach was voted TripAdvisor's No. 1 Beach in the U.S. and No. 5 in the world in 2012, based on millions of reviews from travelers around the world. When you visit this magical expanse of sand, you'll understand why.

Reviewed By TD S

Wonder what I would do if I lived here? It’s breathtaking! I’m hoping to return. Parking is a premium near St Pete’s Beach. We found a neighborhood seafood restaurant Ricks Reef to grab a bite. Just go right in find a seat type of place and the waiteress Will come over and take your order! There’s plenty of outdoor seating too.
Thanks for the amazing sunshine! I’m coming back every year!

Clam Bayou Nature Park

Reviewed By Taylor B - Chicago, Illinois

Clam Bayou Nature Park, formerly known as Osgood Point, plays an important role in the Clam Bayou Estuary of Boca Ciega Bay. The 10-acre park is part of Clam Bayou and Clam Bayou Nature Preserve which provides several environments from the upland natural vegetation, marsh and mangrove forests to the deeper waters of Boca Ciega Bay. Located at 34th Avenue South and 40th Street South in St. Petersburg or south of 29th Avenue South on Miriam Street in Gulfport, it includes a 170-acre estuary between Gulfport, St. Petersburg and Boca Ciega Bay that is popular with kayakers and canoeists and a habitat for fiddler crabs, clams, wading birds, dolphins and manatees. Observation decks provide views of Clam Bayou and Boca Ciega Bay and there are nature trails for hikers and bird-watchers. The park is open 30 minutes before sunrise and closes 30 minutes after sunset. It is quiet and peaceful and beautiful.

Pass-a-Grille

Historic beach area with restaurants, shopping, fishing, bike rentals, boat tours and cozy inns and motels.

Reviewed By Beachgirl_08Pa - Florida

We have visited Pass A Grille a number of times in the past year. It’s a cute little town with restaurants, shops, bars, and nice homes. Parking is hard to find unless you are willing to pay $2.25 per hour. We refuse to pay that much to park so we drive around and search out places to park for free. It’s a nice place to take a little walk but it’s not one of my favorite beaches as it’s pretty narrow and can get crowded. If you are like me and like to have a lot of space between you and other beach goers, I would recommend St Pete Beach or Treasure Island.
