This hidden gem in St. Pete Beach is a must if you’re looking for a day of tranquility. It’s a small garden steps away from the beach. Your kids will enjoy the vibrant colors from all of the tropical plants. There are so many great photo ops the perfect for a family photo.

This tiny oasis of flowers and succulents is located on the north end of the beach. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of a crowded beach, this is the place to go to.

Sunset Beach Park is one of the many waterfront parks in St Pete with a beautiful scenic view. It’s a favorite amongst locals for picnics, swimming, and boat launching. It’s usually not too crowded so you can enjoy a day of peace. The park also has barbecue grills, sheltered picnic tables, a concession stand, bicycle stands, and public restrooms. It makes for the ideal location for a family fun day.

Staying true to its name, this is the perfect spot to watch the sunset. Look out for the free monthly concerts that usually take place when there’s a full moon to enjoy an evening of music under the stars.

Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Boca Ciega Bay you’ll find a shoppers paradise. Visit unique boutiques and specialty shops, art, craft, jewelry galleries, clothing stores, and gift shops. We love going to Attic Shop Thrift Store for some vintage finds. You’re guaranteed to find something for everyone in the family. 

When you’re done shopping, enjoy breakfast, lunch, or dinner at one of the many restaurants. We recommend PJ’s Oyster Bar for some fresh, local seafood.

Looking for a spot to have a picnic with the family? Look no further. Horan Park is a beautiful waterfront park with a playground, pavilion, barbecue, restroom, and parking. Bring your cooler, blanket, and some burgers and hot dogs for the perfect family barbecue.

 This park is adjacent to the St Pete Beach Community Center which has a pool and fitness center. You can spend the entire day here enjoying all of the amenities. It’s the perfect family spot for the whole family to enjoy a day in the sun.

Monday–Sunday | 9AM–8PM

Who doesn’t love ice cream? Head over to this old-fashioned ice cream parlor for scoops, sundaes, fro-yo, and burgers and hotdogs if you’re hungry.

Larry’s offers over 100 original ice cream flavors. We recommend the Birthday Cake! They also have fresh mini donuts with tons of toppings that you can’t miss out on. The S’more donut is a must!

Larry’s has been a staple in St Pete Beach for over 30 years. It’s one of those spots you’ll regret not going to.
