St. Pete/Clearwater is one of those rare places that truly has it all, including outstanding—and even slightly quirky—attractions.
First, the outstanding: Pre-Columbian Indian shell mounds, called middens, can be visited throughout the area. Ten thousand years of local history are on display at the Safety Harbor Museum of Regional History. A chilling and moving afternoon awaits at the Florida Holocaust Museum. Meanwhile, family-friendly sites include the tranquil Sunken Gardens and Great Explorations Children’s Museum. Check out only-in-St. Pete attractions such as The Dalí Museum and Chihuly Collection. And let’s not forget the water and sand calling you from our award-winning beaches.
And now, the unusual: How about driving an authentic World War II M8 Greyhound vehicle (a.k.a. a giant tank!) at the Armed Forces History Museum? Or, party like a pirate on a pirate cruise out of Clearwater or St. John’s Pass. And at Pier 60 in Clearwater, come say hello to our quirky street performers at sunset every single evening.
