Things to do in your time outside of the All CountyⓇ Conference—or if you want to add extra days to your trip and turn your time in St. Pete into a whole vacation. 

St. Petersburg, Florida is known as the “Sunshine City.” We have almost year-round warm weather, more beaches and golf courses than residents can regularly visit, and skies stay clear (other than occasional rain, which hardly ever lasts more than 15 minutes). 

But what makes St. Pete more than a beach vacation is its lively dining, activity, and arts scene. There are more bars and restaurants worth trying than you’ll be able to fit into a weekend. People travel to museums here to see exhibits unavailable elsewhere, and you’ll see murals on every street. 

So while you’re here, we put together a list of where to eat, drink, and spend your time while you’re in a city we’re so excited to share with you.
