Downtown St. Pete is very pedestrian friendly. Great restaurants and great bars. There is also a movie theater and shopping. The best part is all the walking you can do on the waterfront! Don't miss it!

A long walk but there is a free trolley bus. Very easy to get around. Lots of restaurants scattered around.
