Day Trips

Scroll down for day trip suggestions. Or for easier filtering by activity type and location, simply visit my LovingStPete main page and sort accordingly for Day Trips. While we really never have to leave the Pinellas County area, it’s still fun to occasionally leave town. Day trips are 1 to 2 1/2 hours away and doable in a day.

My name is Mike Braswell and I’m Real Estate agent in the Tampa Bay area. I truly love our area and even started @LovingStPete on Facebook and Instagram for over 15 thousand followers to reference. My main focus is waterfront properties, though I’d love to earn your business no matter the location! Please contact me if you would like to discuss our area or St Petersburg Real Estate.
