Nearby St. Petersburg Attractions You’ll Want to Visit

TradeWinds Resorts makes its home in St. Pete Beach, which is located just next to one of Florida’s most beautiful cities — St. Petersburg. It’s a city that’s absolutely brimming with amazing things to see, do, and experience. So if you decide to venture out and explore the city while you’re our guest, here are some of the best St. Petersburg attractions you’ll definitely want to check out. 

Salvador Dalí Museum

Few artists have been so prolific, so creative, and so revered as to warrant the creation of a museum of their own. But everyone would agree that famous Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí is certainly one of them. Some of Dalí’s most famous and studied works are on display here, along with educational exhibits on the artist’s life, process and legacy. Not to be missed!

Tropical vegetation, exotic flowers and even a resident flock of flamingos all make their homes here. The Sunken Gardens also hosts a regular calendar of public events, as well.

This stunning 2,031-seat performance space — situated right on the water downtown at Duke Energy Center For the Arts — has hosted live shows of countless types since first opening in 1965.

The Fairgrounds

In many cities, the fairgrounds are a mostly-empty space where a carnival midway, games and rides pop up for a few days a year. In St. Pete, The Fairgrounds is a spot that takes a different approach to entertainment. Part museum, part interactive experience and 100% fun, The Fairgrounds is an all-ages cultural hub that hosts exhibits, workshops, events, and more. It defies description, but it’s definitely a stop you should add to your itinerary.

Taking place every Saturday morning from May to October, the market features a little of everything. Fresh local produce, flowers, honey, hot food to go, and even arts and crafts are always available. You never know what treasures you’ll find!
