driving and walking city tour of St. Petersburg
*This tour is the same as my "Off the beaten Path" city tour but less expensive because you provide the transportation. *
This is a driving tour with multiple stops. We will drive through some of the local neighborhoods and stop at some iconic eating and drinking places to relax, play games, and savor the scenery. We will also meander some of the downtown and browse the local shops.
This is a good tour to get to know the city a bit if you are thinking of moving here or simply want to see more of the city than the known touristy spots. Feel free to ask about any places you have heard about and would like to see. I am totally flexible in customizing the tour to your desires.
Some of the places we will visit on this tour include:
The "Chattaway" , an iconic old Florida establishment complete with outside garden and inside tea room.
The "Hangar" where you can sit outside sipping an ice tea or cocktail watching the planes come and go.
The "Sundial" a beautiful outdoor mall with markets, restaurants and stores.
The "Coliseum" and the largest shuffleboard courts in the world. . . a tribute to a bygone era which has experienced a huge renaissance with today's youth.
"Gisella Kopsick" palm garden, beach volleyball, and bayside park.
We will walk some of the central avenue shop district and see why this city draws so many quality artists.
We will stop at "McClellan's" a wonderful art gallery with blown glass classes and demonstrations.
Depending on time and desire we could also drive a short distance to the picturesque small town of Gulfport.
