Petersburg is said to be an arts and entertainment destination, but there are other fun, daring, and adventurous things to do there. While planning your itinerary, make sure that you include the following on your must-do list.
Places to See
Sunken Gardens – When you get tired of shopping in St. Petersburg, just make stop in this lush garden in the middle of the city to enjoy thousands of tropical plants, some of which must be older than you are. You can leisurely stroll in its spiraling paths or you can join the guided tour for some educational and entertaining trivia.
Sand Key Park – Aside from its long stretch of sandy beach, this park is a haven for various animals, like sea turtles, heron, great horned owls, and spoonbills. Have a dip on the beach while bird watching and then you can hike one of its trails to enjoy the nature around you.
St. Petersburg Museum of History – Did you know that the world’s first commercial airliner made its first flight from St. Petersburg? This is just one of the things that you will learn on your visit to this museum, which features documents, photos, and artifacts that tell the history of this awesome city.
Things to Do
Ghost Tour – Scare yourself for an hour and a half of candlelit walking tour that is focused on mysterious and supernatural stories that surround St. Petersburg. Aptly scheduled at night, this tour is headed by a costumed guide who will lead you around the historic spots in the downtown area while giving you chilling tales that will definitely make you stand closer to the person next to you.
Chopper Ride – You can book a chopper ride in St. Petersburg to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the city because nothing beats seeing the sights than from above, either during the day or at night. Chopper tours are very popular in St. Petersburg, so you may have to book in advance to ensure a ride during your vacation.
Dinner Theater – Be entertained by great theater actors while you enjoy your entrees at the Murder She Wrote Theater. The best part is that you can become a cast in the story too. Watch as the mystery unfolds in between courses and do not hesitate to participate in solving the crime that is told in a murderously comical way.
