For Pete's sake, visit sunny Saint Pete Beach

Saint Pete Beach is one of the locales where Florida truly lives up to its moniker as the Sunshine State—the sun shines on this Gulf Coast town literally all year long, making it the ideal spot to get that glowing tan. Mid-century Saint Pete Beach vacation rentals and long-running establishments evoke an unmistakable Old Florida feel, but don't mistake it for a sleepy town. Come nightfall, head for one of the beach bars, where you can drink tiki cocktails and make merry with the locals well into the wee hours of the morning.

Saint Pete Beach—there's plenty of fish in the, err, gulf

Not to be confused with the nearby buzzing city of St. Petersburg, Saint Pete Beach is much more laid-back, so it's perfect for beach bumming. It's also an ideal getaway for avid anglers casting their nets wide in search of varied fishing opportunities. Hire a charter boat for access to inshore and offshore hotspots, head for one of several fishing piers in the vicinity, or try wade fishing at Fort De Soto Park and Weedon Island Preserve. Alternatively, book a dolphin-watching excursion and watch these playful mammals make a splash in their natural habitat.

Don't pass up the chance to visit Pass-a-Grille

At the southern end of Saint Pete Beach lies the Pass-a-Grille Historic District. The community's first church building now houses the volunteer-run Gulf Beaches Historical Museum, where old photos, vintage postcards, and various artifacts piece together a visual history of Florida's barrier islands. Before leaving the musuem, make sure to pick up a brochure for a self-guided walking tour of Pass-a-Grille—there are plenty of historic buildings to see in this part of town. Touted as one of America's shortest Main Streets, 8th Avenue is a charming row of small art galleries and quaint boutiques.

It's perpetually sunny in Saint Pete Beach

If you were hoping to make a scrapbook filled with enviable snapshots against the backdrop of the Gulf of Mexico, consider your wish granted. The subtropical climate in Saint Pete Beach all but guarantees year-round sunshine, although you'll probably need a sweater from late fall to early spring, when the evenings get just a tad chilly. Temps in the winter, particularly in January and February, range from 35 to 80 degrees, while June to September see an average summer temperature of 83 degrees. For better chances of scoring great deals on Saint Pete Beach vacation rentals, consider scheduling your holiday in the winter.

Saint Pete Beach—a grand time in the great outdoors

Covering a whopping 1,136 acres, Fort De Soto Park encompasses 5 interconnected islands, or "keys." You'll be spoilt for choice with the outdoor amenities, from hiking and canoe trails to white-sand swimming beaches. From Saint Pete Beach, you can also take a ferry (or your own boat) to Shell Key Preserve, a nesting site for seabirds and sea turtles in the summer. There are no facilities in Shell Key—not so much as a bathroom—so come prepared for a day trip, and see if you can make Bear Grylls proud. You can also rent a kayak and paddle around the preserve.
