The Waterfront Museum District

As if St. Pete’s sparkling downtown waterfront wasn’t picturesque enough, this part of the city is packed with murals, museums and restaurants serving "Insta-worthy" dishes. Then, there’s the string of gorgeous parks that line Tampa Bay.  

The jaw-dropping Salvador Dalí Museum marks the southern end of the Waterfront Museum District. Next door is the Mahaffey Theater, a stunning venue that brings national acts to town, as well as the resident Florida Orchestra. Nearby, Al Lang Stadium is where the Tampa Bay Rowdies play – its parking lot doubles as the location for the super-popular Saturday Morning Market from October to April. The Palladium offers everything from opera to burlesque to blues bands.
