Explore the colorful street art that brings St. Pete to life.


If it's an outdoor surface in St. Pete, chances are, there's a bold and brilliant work of art covering it. The city is famous for the murals that adorn its walls. It all started about a decade ago when city officials loosened a local ban on street art, instead embracing local artists and their vision of transforming St. Pete into a true arts destination. There's even an annual mural festival, SHINE, which brings artists from around the world to St. Pete to create massive works of public art for all to enjoy.

From guided tours to essential selfie spots, here's how to experience St. Pete's murals in full color.
