St Pete Beach Activities – #BeachTownSeries

Published on 05/08/21: Post 3 of 3 on St. Pete Beach. Post two detailed our favorite two-mile beach stroll of ‘toes in the sand‘ restaurants and bars! Now wrapping up w/ other points of interests on TripAdvisor’s #1 beach in the United States!

Parking in St Pete Beach:

There’s a large Park Mobile lot at 4700 Gulf Blvd. Keep it in mind if you can’t find parking adjacent to your destination.

Public Transportation:

The Free Island Hopper operates along the beach, dependent on your tips. Phone: 727-217-6935.

The Suncoast Beach Trolley operates between PAG and Clearwater Beach.

Playgrounds: One directly on the beach (in the sand) by the Sirata Beach Resort. One at Lido Park, 45th Ave and 1st St E (2 acres) and then Horan Park is at 7701 Boca Ciega Drive (4.3 acres). There are others too…

Couple activities to consider:

Polynesian Putter – Mini Golf

Vincent William Gallery – Art from over 45 local and national artists.

Corey Avenue Sunday Market on St. Pete Beach

Swim with the fish in the aquarium at RumFish Grill

Plenty of Watersports around SPB of course too…

In addition to those restaurants on post #2, in no particular order:

Spinners Restaurant and Level 11 Bar atop the Bellwether Beach Resort, formerly the Grand Plaza Hotel. Closed for renovation, however once they re-open in summer, make sure to visit for an amazing view(!) as the restaurant slowly rotates.

Mad Fish Restaurant, St Pete Beach

Snapper’s Sea Grill

1200 Chophouse – Our favorite steak place while living in SPB

PJ’s Oyster Bar, St. Pete Beach

Skidder’s Restaurant – Known for great breakfast (other meals too)

Woody’s Waterfront

Undertow Beach Bar (the couple times we’ve been it was very fun, simply not quite as kid friendly as some other beach bars on list. Might have just been the days we went.)

The Hotel Zamora rooftop (aka ‘360 Rooftop’) on the intracoastal w/ boat dockage

The Drunken Clam Bar & Grille – Wings!

Buoys Waterfront Bar and Grill (boat dockage was being repaired last we heard)

Paradise Grille at Upham Beach – beach shack with picnic tables.

WILLY’s Burgers and BOOZE SPB

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
