St. Petersburg's downtown is more old school than modern metropolis, but it has authentic appeal. This is a working downtown with businesses, shops, and restaurants, with a smattering of art and pop culture. Tampa Bay Rays baseball team call Tropicana Field their home, and vendors serve ballpark-worthy hot dogs on every corner of St. Pete. Janis Landing hosts pop concerts in an intimate setting, surrounded by shops and balconies. St. Pete also has a tropical side, with miles of beaches, waterfront festivals, the Pier, and the Bay Walk outdoor shopping mall.

Getting Around Tampa
The best way to get around Tampa is by car. While public transit exists, the system can be confusing to visitors. If staying downtown during your entire visit, you might forgo a car and use the TECO Line Streetcar instead.
