Fill Your Day With Sunshine in St.Petersburg, Florida
No surprise the "Sunshine State" is home to the city holding the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive days of sunshine. The record came to a total of 768 days between 1967 and 1969.
The weather is one reason people in St. Petersburg love to spend their time at the beach and enjoy scenic tours.
Treat yourself to waterfront views with StarLite Cruises. Enjoy a fine dining experience, entertainment, and dancing on the Starlite Sapphire Dining Yacht. Enjoy relaxing at Fort DeSoto Beach, located off of St. Petersburg's southern tip. Beachgoers can tour the five interconnected islands of the surrounding Fort De Soto Park. These islands are home to beach plants, mangroves, wetlands and a bounty of native plants. Fort De Soto includes campgrounds, nature trails, fitness trails, canoe trails, fishing piers, and picnic pavilions. You can even bring your dog to run around the designated dog park area. Draped in over three miles of white sand, Fort De won Tripadvisor's Top Beach award in 2009.
Take a trip to the Sunken Gardens. A botanical paradise, the Sunken Gardens are St. Petersburg's oldest living museum. More than a century old, the gardens are home to some of the region's oldest tropical plants. Wander through their calming paths and experience exotic plant life from around the world. The gardens feature stunning waterfalls, more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers, garden tours, and horticultural programs.
