St. Petersburg, Florida
Let go of your preconceived notions about St. Petersburg, Florida. This corner of the Sunshine State is no longer a destination dominated by senior travellers. Enticing restaurants, the cutting edge Salvador Dali Museum, and a flourishing craft beer scene are injecting a young, trendy vibe into the city. “There is a shift happening in St. Petersburg, and a younger generation is moving into the area,” says Allison Wallace, director of media relations and communications for Flight Centre Canada. The city’s youth movement signals the arrival of happening beer gardens, revitalized heritage buildings, and a redeveloped waterfront. “Visit 3 Daughters Brewing, a craft beer establishment that offers tours, tastings and life-sized games (think Jenga, ping pong, darts, etc),” says Wallace. And don’t forget to top up your summer tan with a relaxing spell on one of St. Petersburg’s famous sandy beaches.
