Bird's Eye View: Jimmy's Crow's Nest
High above Clearwater Beach's emerald green waters, bright white sand and iconic Pier 60, if you position yourself just right, you'll capture it all from this popular rooftop bar, Jimmy's Crow's Nest. While you're there, order a frozen concoction or two and enjoy the panoramic views!
Majestic Mangroves: Caladesi Island State Park
Grab a paddle and glide through the magical tunnels naturally created from Florida mangrove trees, thanks to Mother Nature. At Caladesi Island State Park, there are 3.5 miles of kayak trails to explore. Dry bags are highly recommended to keep your precious selfie device from getting wet.
Local Flavors: Green Bench Brewing
With 45+ local breweries to discover on the St. Pete/Clearwater Craft Beer Trail, there's something for everyone. Green Bench Brewing in downtown St. Pete not only serves up a variety of delicious beer, but the beautiful indoor/outdoor space provides prime selfie opportunities.
Above it All: Parasailing Over the Gulf
The great thing about using a selfie stick 500 ft. in the air? There's nobody around to make fun of you! But, what's even better is the selfie you can snap of yourself floating high above the Gulf of Mexico, strapped to a parasail. Honestly, there's nothing like it, so you definitely need to document.
The 600 Block
St. Pete's street art scene is no secret. Many of the most photographed murals are found in the alley of the 600 Block in downtown. And for good reason! It’s full of interactive works of art that are sure to make your Insta-feed ten times cooler. So start working on your poses and go get inspired by a mural tour on the block where St. Pete’s Art Renaissance began!
The Dali Mustache
We mustache you a question! Are you looking for a surreal selfie that will have all of your friends and family talking? Then head on over to the Dali Museum’s Avant-garden and get a photo with this larger-than-life Dali mustache installation.
While there are many great selfie locations in St. Pete, The Canopy rooftop lounge atop The Birchwood offers some of the best views of Tampa Bay, Straub Park, and the new St. Pete Pier.
