The city of St Petersburg, for many tourists, is known as a bypass between lively Tampa and beautiful St Pete Beach; yet, many of the area’s premier museums rest in the “Sunshine City.” St Petersburg is also home to several of the Tampa Bay Area’s best restaurants and breweries as well as the Tampa Bay Rays. We’ve hand-selected three of our favorite St Petersburg museums, all of which are approximately eight miles from Travel Resort Services’ gulf-view St Pete Beach condo rentals.
Our guests here at Travel Resort Services (TRS) are always looking for new experiences, free events, and live music, which is where the annual Mainsail Art Festival comes into the picture. This free event was recently named one of the top 20 art shows in the country by Sunshine Artist Magainze, capturing the attention of locals and tourists alike. Pristine Vanoy Park is only nine miles from our contemporary yet affordable St Pete Beach condo rentals, and the Mainsail Art Festival is the perfect midday activity in-between stints on the gorgeous shores of Upham Beach Park.
It’s no secret that Florida’s Gulf Coast has juicy, delicious seafood around nearly every corner, especially in the St. Pete Beach area. Families, couples, and groups escape to lively Johns Pass Village for eclectic shopping, seemingly never-ending beach fun, and some of the best seafood in Madeira Beach Florida. Vacations in sunny Florida are incomplete without a relaxing stay in an affordable, contemporary beachfront condo rental, which is where Travel Resort Services (TRS) enters the picture.
On the southern tip of Madeira Beach, Florida, rests a lively village full of charming seafood shacks, kitschy local shops, and water adventure possibilities. Johns Pass Village & Boardwalk has become a popular outlet for families, couples, and pre-wedding celebrations. The food is divine, the shops are fun, the beer is refreshing, and the beach is just down the street. Travel Resort Services (TRS) has several resort rentals along Gulf Boulevard, steps from the Gulf of Mexico and exciting Johns Pass.
You would be making a huge mistake if you skipped the Florida State Fair, however, as this annual get-together is a unique opportunity to taste rare foods, meet friendly animals, and people-watch thousands of carnival-goers. Travel Resort Services (TRS) has a wide variety of Madeira Beach rentals and St. Pete Beach resorts only a short drive from the fairgrounds. We have hundreds of vacation rentals throughout the great Tampa area, perfect for a getaway of any kind.
It’s not often our guests ask us about the best things to do in Downtown Tampa. Most tourists who visit Florida’s Gulf Coast spend their time swimming, sunbathing, and sipping cocktails near the beach. But when an occasional undesirable stormy day comes along, it’s good to have a fun day-trip planned to Downtown St. Petersburg or Tampa. Travel Resort Services (TRS) has multiple waterfront St. Pete Beach resorts minutes from the area’s best beaches, shopping, and restaurants.
It’s universal knowledge that periodic vacations help us maintain longer, happier, and more productive lives, yet, 52 percent of Americans start each new year with lost, unused vacation time, according to Project: Time Off. The American population let 705 million vacation days slip through the cracks in 2017 alone. Our careers are very important, but so is our family life and overall health.
As colorful autumn swiftly transforms into snowy winter in the northern half of the United States, Florida’s Gulf Coast remains a warm, tropical paradise. A beach day should be on every itinerary here in sunny St. Pete Beach, even in the middle of “winter.” Whether you’re hoping to build an elaborate sandcastle, spike a volleyball in the white sand, or share a picnic with family or friends, St. Pete Beach is the perfect tropical getaway.
Families from across North America visit Florida to escape harsh winters, lounge on pristine beaches, and explore some of the world’s best attractions. Many tourists flock to Florida’s Gulf Coast specifically to swim with dolphins, whale watch, and snorkel. The Gulf of Mexico is brimming with beautiful mammals, colorful fish, and breathtaking coral reefs.
Plan one day away from beautiful St. Pete Beach with a short adventure to our neighbors to the east: St. Petersburg. The “Sunshine City” is a diverse community filled with engrossing art galleries, thought-provoking museums, entertaining live theater, and crisp, refreshing craft beer. The heart of St. Petersburg is less than ten miles from Travel Resort Services’ vacation rentals.
