If you're looking for an ocean-side vacation spot that's all about white sand, gorgeous ocean views, and dolphins splashing in the surf, St. Pete Beach is the place to be. Not only is the little town one of the top beach destinations around, but a quarter of the homes here are owned by people from elsewhere who drop by to soak up some mid-winter rays every year. You can kayak out to one of the eight barrier islands or ferry over to Caladesi Island State Park for some South Florida nature. Marina nature cruises are regularly offered, providing up-close views of the dolphins, pelicans, and egrets that call this gorgeous place home. If you're lucky, you might even glimpse a bald eagle or a manatee. There's plenty of culture to be experienced, as well. St. Pete Beach offers great art museums.
