St Pete Beach FL ...where lazy days on beautiful beaches meet rocking nightlife
St Pete Beach FL is well-known as a tourist destination city because of its beautiful white sand beaches, its surfer-dude atmosphere, the propensity of great beach bars and restaurants, the Don CeSar Beach Resort, and its entertaining night life.
This little four-mile barrier island is also called Long Key (not to be confused with the real one in the Florida Keys.)
It is home to about 10,200 residents. St Pete Beach FL is bordered on the north by Blind Pass and ends at Pass-A-Grille Beach to the south.
It can be a little confusing getting here from Treasure Island because you need to take the east fork of Gulf Blvd...which turns into Blind Pass Road...which turns into Gulf Blvd again. Don't worry, you can't really get lost.
If you mistakenly follow Gulf Blvd on the west fork...well, you'll end up on beautiful Sunset Beach. Just turn around, go back to the stop light at the convenience store and take a right.
This will put you on East Gulf Blvd, which will snake around over a bridge and turn into Blind Pass Road. Now you're heading heading south and a sign will direct you to turn right again after about a mile or so to get back on Gulf Blvd.
Pretty easy stuff. You'll be smack in the beginning of downtown St Pete Beach.
If you are coming from St. Petersburg, just take Central Avenue to Pasadena (State Road 693.) Turn left on Pasadena and follow it over the Corey Causeway to Gulf Blvd.
Once again, it is pretty easy to get to St Pete Beach. Now, let's find some places to park for
