In the last year, St. Pete has become my most favorite place – so much so that I plan on moving there someday. I have accumulated a list of my go-to spots in St. Pete that I must visit when I’m in town! Hopefully, the next time you choose to come to this city you consider coming to one of these trendy spots.
1. Craft Café
Craft Café is my absolute favorite coffee shop in St. Pete because of its cozy vibe and of course delicious lattes. This coffee shop's munu includes baked goods along with an assortment of teas and coffees. Craft Café is located in the heart of Downtown St. Pete surrounded by the lively energy the city brings. This café provides a sense of comfort in the midst of all the bustle. I encourage you to visit this coffee shop if you’re looking for a quiet yet trendy café in the city! I love coming here with all my girlfriends on the weekends.
2. Caddy’s on Central
Caddy’s on Central is a great spot if you’re looking for a fun night out with some friends! This place has tasty food along with live music. As well as live music, this venue provides pool tables & darts so you and your friends will be entertained the entire evening! Caddy’s on Central has a vibe unlike other spots in Downtown St. Pete – it’s super authentic that makes you feel right at home.
3. The Beach (of course)
St. Pete beach is unique because you’re about a twenty-minute drive into the city which isn’t too far away from the water. I enjoy spending the day at the beach and then going into Downtown during the evening! Going to the beach is my most favorite thing to do (ever) so naturally whenever I’m in St. Pete, I make sure that I go. Depending on your mood, there are different spots you can go for a change of pace – some areas are busier than others but you can always find little inlets that are quieter. One thing that’s consistent no matter which beach spot you choose are the sunsets! The sunsets in St. Pete are breathtakingly beautiful and are a must see when visiting.
4. Thirsty First
Thirsty First is a bar / restaurant located in Downtown St. Pete! This spot has the best food with an extensive cocktail menu. Live music is an added bonus at this particular venue! I was able to go to this spot back in October for the Downtown St. Pete Music Festival and had such a fun time with my friends. This is a great spot if you’re looking to meet new people and socialize.
Downtown St. Pete has the best coffee shops, bars and restaurants in walking distance of each other. Of course, beaches are a short drive away - I highly recommend you to take a visit sometime soon!
