St Petersburg, nicknamed The Sunshine City, is definitely a stop to make while visiting the Gulf Coast. It is only located 21 miles west of Tampa. In the last couple of years, St Pete has imposed itself as a cultural and artsy city.
We went there only for a day and honestly I can NOT wait to go back and explore the city a little bit more.
We started our day trip downtown St Petersburg, familiarly called St Pete and we LOVED it. It is amazing, green, palm trees are everywhere, it leaves such a great fresh feeling.
