The Beachcomber Beach Resort

Things to Do in St. Pete Beach

As the name implies, St. Pete Beach is a beach lover’s paradise. Yet there’s more to St. Pete Beach than white sands and sparkling seas. At The Beachcomber especially, you’ll more often than not find yourself sipping a cold one and listening to live music—toes in the sand optional.

But there’s also a world of activities beyond the beach. Though most lists of St. Pete Beach attractions start with the sands and the water sports, at The Beachcomber, beers and beaches are a given. So when it comes to discovering the best of St. Pete Beach activities, don’t be afraid to branch out.

A holocaust museum? St. Petersburg has one. A botanical garden? There’s one of those nearby, too. When you’ve had your fill of history museums and native plants, you can always kick back on the beach. That’s the beauty of The Beachcomber experience.

Sunken Gardens

Sunken Gardens

A paradise within a bustling cityscape is the name of the game for Sunken Gardens. This 100-year-old garden is also St. Petersburg’s oldest living museum, housing some of the region’s oldest tropical plants. Meander through rows of vibrant exotic plants interspersed among waterfalls and demonstration gardens. You never know what tropical plants you’ll discover among the 50,000 varieties of plants and flowers.

Morean Arts Center

Morean Arts Center display

Local, national, and international artists are on display at the Morean Arts Center. Artists like Jasper Johns and Allison Massari have both shown their work here. Aside from rotating artworks, the Morean Arts Center’s biggest claim to fame is the Chihuly Collection, where you’ll find Dale Chihuly’s unique glass sculptures.

Tropicana Field

Watch the Tampa Bay Rays take to the diamond at Tropicana Field. This major league baseball team is fun to watch, but Tropicana Field itself may be just as exciting. Head to the Ballpark & Rec pregame area, or dig into gameday eats from concessions like First Base Food Hall. At 1.1 million square feet, if you want it, Tropicana Field probably has it.

Florida Holocaust Museum

A beach vacation may not scream “history,” but the Florida Holocaust Museum (FHM)  is worth the visit. As one of the largest Holocaust museums in the country, the FHM serves as a living memorial to those who suffered and/or perished during the Holocaust. Hear a survivor speak or guide yourself through exhibits featuring artifacts like a boxcar.

Pass-A-Grille Beach

Just down the beach from St. Pete Beach lies Pass-A-Grille, a historic, laid back beach town. Explore the boutiques, ice cream shops, and restaurants that have popped out throughout this quaint town. In Pass-A-Grille, you’ll also find an outdoor art market, tennis courts, and fishing piers.

Boat Tours

Embark on an island boat adventure throughout St. Pete Beach. Since St. Pete Beach is surrounded by water on both sides, you’ll have plenty to explore. See the dolphins with Dolphin Landings Charter Boat Center. Put the pedal to the medal with Tampa Speed Boat Adventures. Or get a brief history of the area on Adventure Cruises Inc.

Fort de Soto Park

This may very well be the most unique park you’ve ever visited. Fort de Soto Park covers 1,136 acres spread across five interconnected islands. Go hiking, biking, or shelling, all within this scenic county park. Canoe and kayak rentals are also available within the park.
