Although the first seaside piers were built in England in the early 19th century, we Floridians like to think we have perfected the art, giving them new purpose and making them the center of fun and excitement, with the St. Pete Pier offering the perfect example. Providing more than a place to tie up your boat and giving folks a place to gather, the St. Pete Pier offers fun for people of all ages and today, we at RentTheKeys want to take a few minutes to show our guests all the fun they can have while hanging out the pier.
Located at 600 2nd Avenue NE in St. Petersburg
The St. Pete Pier has gone through many changes and monikers over the years since it being built in 1889 but its latest incarnation is surely going to be your favorite. Open every day of the week from 30 minutes before sunrise until 11 PM and stretching out into the sea over 1300 feet, every square inch is well used, bringing joy to all who visit. Offering museums for exploring local history, art to enjoy, and parks for family fun and peaceful experiences, everyone in your traveling party will find something that appeals to them. Spend some of your pier time shopping in a variety of stores in the Marketplace, a bazaar that filled with international delights and when you are hungry, stop in any of the restaurants, there are six on the pier, and devour meals that feed your soul accompanied by your favorite drinks. Many days of the month there will be special events held at St. Pete Pier, including yoga classes, live music, even educational experiences that will inspire learning in your tiniest travelers without making them feel as if they are in school.
