St. Petersburg, Florida

My first adult vacation. So desperately needed and so wonderfully enjoyed.

Last year my best friend of nearly 20 years moved from our hometown in southern Missouri to a place so wonderfully different: Florida. The sweet beachside town of St. Petersburg to be exact. Located on a peninsula connected to Tampa Bay, the 244,769 population city is home to the Tampa Bay Rays, many beautiful beaches, fabulous culture, excellent museums, and much more. With 361 sunny days every year, I can see why my winter-hating friend made the 1,108 mile move. It also helps that a vast majority of the population is largely 25 to age 40 meaning a great shopping district, fantastic restaurants and bars, and a plethora of activities for young folks.

While we were in town for a short two and a half days, we watched the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 16-1, spent two cloudy but nonetheless enjoyable days at the beach, walked the pier countless times, gorged on amazing food and beers, but most importantly, we had a beyond amazing time visiting my best friend. It was a blast! I’m already planning my next trip down!

As per usual, I took way too many pictures. Enjoy! I hope they force you to begin planning your next vacation to the Sunshine City in the Sunshine State.
