St. Petersburg Hotels

St. Petersburg sits on the glittering coast of the Bay of Tampa, with sandy, secluded beaches that feel far from the bustle of the city. However, they're close to downtown which is a thriving business area, with large tower blocks and impressive shopping plazas that have appeared in recent years. If you prefer a small town vibe, then head to the waterfront which has smaller boutiques and craft stalls, giving it a fun, bohemian atmosphere.

Things to see

Dedicated to one of the best known surrealists; The Dali Museum has suitably challenging architecture, with a contrast between sharp concrete angles, irregularly shaped glass domes, and long spiral staircases. It's surrounded by gardens that have also been created in a Dali style, with sculptures such as a giant mustache to give it that surreal character. Inside, you'll find several bright galleries full of Dali's work, as well as temporary exhibits from famous artists. Another unique display can be found at the Chihuly Collection, a gallery dedicated to Dale Chihuly, a glass artist whose works often resemble exotic trees and flowers. As you walk through the slightly darkened galleries, the glassworks catch the spotlights and seem to have a neon glow about them, creating a one of a kind experience. Tropicana Field hosts major league baseball games for the local team, the Tampa Bay Rays, with a huge domed stadium that's filled with over 45,000 spectators cheering on game nights. There's even a tank of rays that you can see up close, and a hall of fame where you can see displays about your baseball heroes.
