St. Petersburg, Florida: Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, Waterfront and Sunshine

 


A Few Morsels On Why to Visit St. Petersburg

If only I had more time, I would have seen and done far more in what this resort-town had to offer.  St. Petersburg is known as the City of Arts and its beloved 244 miles of shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico.  On this trip, I ended up focusing my discoveries at a nature preserve, experiencing their downtown waterfront and soaking up the beachy vibes.  

Thank goodness for smartphones and GPS directions, as I navigated this area with ease and put 160 miles on my rental car exploring and getting familiar with this area.  With a couple of extra days, I could have easily enjoyed more of this "Sunshine City."  When visiting, be ready for a steady flow of traffic on the main roadways around the city and pack your patience at traffic lights.  Driving around the beachfront and tourist locations can creep at a "no one is in a hurry" pace and, of course, why not take on the same attitude.  After all, it is St. Pete, so capture the coastal beachy mood.
