Downtown St Petersburg for Christmas Holidays

Published on 12/19/22: Good morning! For the Leg Lamp winners, simply scroll down. Last night I posted a ‘story’ of the drawing. Colt was excited, to say the least. Ha, check it out. I suppose this IS a “major award!”. Congratulations and thank you for following the new LovingStPete YouTube Channel! I’ll do another giveaway fairly soon. Simply subscribe here for free:

Onto another activity suggestion! Downtown St Pete’s festive setup along the waterfront. The vibe in North & South Straub Park never disappoints this time of year. I encourage you to head over and see for yourself! 🎄

Santa is in Downtown St Petersburg!

As a bonus, the jolly big man takes toy requests from children every evening on his sleigh. Specifically, from 6-9pm in North Straub, until December 23rd. You might say, “You serious Clark?”. Why yes I am. Saw Santa for myself when taking these pictures. He’s the real deal, even brought his reindeer to the park! #IBelieve
Here are a few of the pics, none of which do the area justice, though at least give you a general idea. While you can cover the park itself in just 10-15 minutes, there’s so much more within a 5 minute walk. Or simply grab a park bench, relax and take in the sights, sounds, and reflections off the water.

Much to See in Downtown St Pete

If you’re unfamiliar, North & South Straub are just a few minute walk to delicious restaurants, St. Pete Pier, The Vinoy Resort & Golf Club, Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille and everything else that downtown has to offer. I included a picture from Doc Ford’s, looking back toward the park. Can’t beat it. We enjoyed making our rounds last weekend and hope you do as well! Love the sailboat ‘Christmas Tree Sailboat’ in that first pic.

The parks will remain decorated until January 1st. For parking, simply use the Park Mobile app in most areas around the park (400 Bayshore Drive NE).
