Let’s have fun!

Fill your days with Dolphin Encounters, Parasailing, fishing charters BIG and little, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, or perhaps walk the plank aboard a Pirate Ship.

There is Deep Sea Fishing, Captain Bligh’s Landing, miniature golf for the little ones, and BIG people golf at many fine courses nearby. Charter a Catamaran, rent a jet ski or a surrey bike, or simply finish the day star-gazing on a signature Sunset Dinner Cruise.

Take a Trolley Ride, boat ride, or bike ride. Experience the sunshine and gulf breezes when you stroll along Beach Walk, a winding beachside walkway with lush landscaping and a clear view to the Gulf of Mexico.

Celebrate the end of the day with Sunsets at Pier 60, a daily festival of arts, crafts and entertainment between 4 – 8 p.m. (weather permitting). Don’t miss the fire breather, escape artists, crafters, jugglers and free live music Friday, Saturday and Sundays.

Journey to Sand Key Park and Preserve, Caladesi Island, or explore the Dark Continent at Busch Gardens or Lowry Park Zoo.

Visit St. Petersburg, ‘the City of the Arts’ to explore the hub of cultural growth and artistic expression. Visit the home of six major museums including the Salvador Dali Museum, or take a day trip to visit Mickey or Shamu.

Do you like to gamble? There is thoroughbred horse racing at Tampa Bay Downs, Derby Lane Dog Track, and, of course, the razzle-dazzle of the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa.
