Top Reasons to Go
Art gone wild: Whether you take the guided tour or chart your own course, experience the one-of-a-kind collection at the Salvador Dalí Museum, which has relocated to a gorgeous waterfront building in downtown St. Petersburg.
Cuban roots: You'll find great food and vibrant nightlife in historic Ybor City, just east of downtown Tampa.
Beachcomer bonanza: Caladesi Island State Park has some of the best shelling on the Gulf Coast, and its five-star sunsets are a great way to end the day.
Culture fix: If you love the arts, there's no finer offering in the Bay Area than at the Florida State University Ringling Center for the Cultural Arts in Sarasota.
