Classically beautiful gulf coast Florida beach. Bright white, soft sands, gorgeous blue-green water, you can't find much better than this. There's a bunch of restaurants and bars that you can walk up to and hang out right off the sand, super convenient and fun area.

One of the most beautiful beach in Florida. White sand, warm water, very few waves (safe for kids), lifeguards, parking spaces (all paid but plenty) and lots of bars, restaurants and shops near.

Excellent place to see the Gulf of Mexico, and enjoy the beaches. There's a dog beach, and ferry to a couple of keys. Take a walk down the pier, swim at the beach, walk through the fort, go to the gift shop, or rent bikes. Heads up: the gift shop and snack bar close at 5 pm.

Busch Gardens Tampa is an elite park to visit. They have one of the best ride lineups and the park atmosphere is amazing. There's tons of plants and animals to see as you walk around the park. The food here is really good too. They have an efficient tram service from the parking lot to the front gate and a preferred lot closer to the gate. They have great shows throughout the year too. The staff is cool too at the rides and elsewhere. This is a beautiful park and you'll want to come back over and over again. Definitely buy a multi day ticket or even a season pass to get the most out of your visit.

Amazing museum, definitely need to see it while in St. Pete! The permanent collection of Dali's work is immaculate with some readily recognizable pieces, and others that you really have to look closely at to see all of the amazing detail placed into his work. The building itself is gorgeous, and outside there are Dali references sprinkled around, even as you're walking up the front steps. The rotating exhibit on the third floor was cool to see, and they had another Dali piece stashed away in there! You also absolutely have to walk through the garden outside, lots of fun photo opportunities! Lastly, don't forget to attach your wristband to the wish tree! You can do it yourself, or you can leave it in a box up front for museum staff to put on the tree for you (but it's more fun and personal to do it yourself).
