Visit America's Best Beaches while you're here for Super Bowl 2021 in Tampa Bay!

We're so excited for the Tampa Bay Bucs, our home team and the first in NFL history to play in the Super Bowl at their home stadium! If you're traveling here for the game or all the fun surrounding it, be sure to visit St. Pete/Clearwater's gorgeous, white-sand beaches and emerald-green waters, right here in Tampa Bay! The sun will be shining and our Gulf of Mexico waters will be warm enough to swim in (yes, even in February). Plan to stay a few extra days because this place is AMAZING. (Did we mention that we're home to America's Best Beaches?!!) Beyond the beach, St. Pete/Clearwater has so much to offer - from the brand-new St. Pete Pier District along the sparkling Tampa Bay waterfront to world-class museums, a fabulous craft beer scene and much more. You can stay at our plush beachfront acccommodations and have a front-row seat to game-day fun and some unforgettable sunsets, too.

Twelve stunning beaches in St. Pete/Clearwater for you to set your umbrella in the sand and stroll at water's edge. Twelve places to find the perfect way to chill  - or, if you're the adventurous kind, to try something new, like jetskiing or kite surfing. From lively Clearwater Beach (named America's #1 Beach in 2019 and 2018 by Tripadvisor) and laid-back St. Pete Beach (Tripadvisor's No. 1 pick in 2021) to all-natural Caladesi Island State Park and stunning Fort De Soto Park, you're sure to find your best beach vacation ever.

Fun is All Around You

Maybe your idea of a perfect vacation is a little bit of beach bliss ... followed by some active days and nights. If so, you should check out Central Ave. - with hundreds of murals, indie boutiques, great restaurants and cafes with outdoor dining, galleries and world-class museums, it's St. Pete's coolest street. Nearby, you'll find the iconic Dalí Museum and the brand-new St. Pete Pier, billed as the Southeast's largest waterfront playground. Want to go all high-brow and art glass? Explore the Chihuly Collection, the Imagine Museum or the Duncan McClellan Gallery. Feeling eco-conscious? Visit the world-famous Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home to Hope and Winter, the stars from the Dolphin Tale movies. Need to let off some steam? Stop in at one of St. Pete/Clearwater's truly excellent sports bars (many of them with outdoor areas) - like Park & Rec, with its life-sized beer pong, corn hole, giant Jenga and nostalgic arcade games.
