The Tampa Bay Area Sights



Beach Drive Review

Just a short stroll from the Vinoy, this upscale stretch along downtown's waterfront is the epicenter of St. Pete's artistic and cultural revival. Tons of pricey restaurants (many alfresco) and shops line the east side of this blocks-long promenade, giving it a European feel. The crowning jewel here is the Dale Chihuly Collection, the only permanent collection of the glass artist's works. Waterfront parks, which are often packed during the area's many weekend festivals, flank the drive's west side.
