Go for a walk at Cliff Stephens Park, grab a pint at Crooked Thumb Brewery, keep an eye out for birds, gopher tortoises and other animals at Moccasin Lake Nature Park, and catch a Philadelphia Phillies spring training game or minor league game at BayCare Ballpark, just to start.
Cross the bridge to Clearwater Beach for those picture-perfect beaches that St. Pete/Clearwater is known for. Just across a bridge from Clearwater, this barrier island is home to one of Florida's most popular beaches.
