Fodor's Expert Review Beach Drive
Just a short stroll from the Vinoy, this upscale stretch along downtown's waterfront is the epicenter of St. Pete's cultural revival and serves as the city's restaurant row. Tons of pricey alfresco eateries and shops line the east side of this blocks-long promenade, giving it a European feel. Standouts include the St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Art and Bella Brava. Dazzling waterfront parks, which are often packed during the area's many weekend festivals, flank the drive's west side.
