St. Petersburg — Sun Coast of Florida

There’s no better place on the Sun Coast of Florida for a great family vacation than St. Petersburg, Florida. There are great beach bars and so many other great things to do there.

#1 Great Explorations Children’s Museum

This museum is a real treasure trove with lots of things for children to do. The children love pretending to prepare and serve pizzas at the BellaBrava Pizza Kitchen. They also have a great time building structures at the Build It exhibit. We always look forward to seeing the reptiles that live there. Their favorite, however, is the Imagination Playground with its enormous building blocks. Operated by the Junior League, this is the perfect place to play, especially on a rainy day.

#2 Dali Museum

Our second favorite thing to do are art projects at the art museum. They love doing the projects, puzzles and games organized by the staff during the Dillydally with Dali in the Stavros Classroom. Children also adore going on the scavenger hunts to see what hidden objects they can find in the artwork. I am always amazed at how still they sit during the daily story times.

#3 TradeWinds Island Resort

Our third favorite thing to do is to play at the Tradewinds Island Grand Resort. The children love the activities planned just for them. One of their favorite things to do is to listen to a pirate tell stories while eating lunch. That’s right they have an on-site restaurant, the Palm Court Italian Grille. They also love fishing from the shore. The variety of ocean-theme activities for them to do is amazing. They also love playing in the seven swimming pools. However, this is not just a resort for kids, there are adult activities right on Saint Pete Beach.
