While Tampa may be more well-known, at the mouth of Tampa Bay lies its sister city St. Petersburg. The city sits at the tip of a protective peninsula that also includes Clearwater, Largo, and stretches of sandbar beaches known as St. Pete Beach. Sound like a recipe for rowdy spring breaks and snowbird escapes? It’s all that…and so much more. White sand beaches attract visitors of all kinds, but artists and families are learning that downtown’s inspiring murals, a revitalized historic district, and sophisticated restaurants are worth the space on their travel itineraries. Explore them all like a local from our St. Petersburg and Clearwater vacation rentals.
Where can you find hip Pensacolans on a Saturday night in Petersburg? Grabbing a craft beer at a local brewery, feasting on fusion cuisine at the newest restaurant that opened down the street, or soaking up the art at a boutique gallery. Join them from your accommodations at Quality Inn & Suites St, and fear not leftovers nor growlers of brew—you’ll have your own kitchen, after all.
Ever wonder if Saint Peter’s friends called him Saint Pete for short? That’s exactly what the laid-back, fun side of St. Petersburg is called. On the outer edge of that narrow peninsula that protects Tampa lies an even narrower strip of land that’s cove-front Marina on one side and gorgeous white-sand beach on the other. And the best part? It’s so narrow that choosing a side is a matter of a few footsteps in either direction. Or stay at the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort Hotel and you could get views of both.
