The #1 Arts Destination - St Petersburg, Florida


Chihuly Collection
We were smitten with St Petersburg downtown when we pulled into the Vinoy Basin anchorage one March. Museums, parks, walkways and bicycle trails dot the lovely waterfront.

Apparently, we aren’t the only ones who thought St Petersburg deserves recognition for its arts. In a poll ran by American Style magazine last summer, readers selected St Pete as the number one top arts destination in Mid-Size Cities.

With the opening of the Dali Museum last month, St Petersburg has been in the news. In case you missed it, this was in the travel section of the New York Times two weekends ago, and this was in Conde Nast Traveler’s concierge.com.

If you are looking for a sunny destination to get away from the winter blues, think no further. Come on down to St Petersburg!
