Don't take our word for it... Take Coastal Living's.

"With mild winters, this is a year-round city of outdoor play, and the proximity of 35 miles of white-sand beaches adds a quality-of-life layer that few other sophisticated enclaves possess."

As a fan of world-class beaches, we thought you'd be interested in The New York Times' take on how to spend '36 Hours' in St. Pete Beach and the surrounding area. Spoiler alert: it features a lot of white sand beach, tiki bars, cultural gems and sun-splashed fun.
