♦ Join St. Petersburg Preservation for a leisurely hour stroll taking in the waterfront and downtown and along the way learn about the city’s history and architecture. St. Petersburg may seem popular today but the 1920’s boom saw an explosion of visitors as St. Petersburg promoted itself with tales of endless sunshine, bathing beauties and sports! Construction boomed with the Vinoy, the Pennsylvania, the Mason (Princess Martha) and other hotels opening and Babe Ruth and the rest of the mighty Yankees made St. Pete their springtime home.
*Chihuly Collection 400 Beach Dr.
Special admission price: *$1.00 for everyone!
