St. Petersburg, Florida, is a perfect base for those seeking to sun worship on the Tampa Bay beaches.

    Rather go shopping? Try Sundial St. Pete, where chic shops, elegant eateries, and relaxing spa experiences await. Alternately, go browsing among the vintage boutiques of the 600 Block Art District.
