Walk St. Petersburg is a 12 stop downtown, self-guided audio tour and a part of the Florida Humanities Council’s “Florida Stories” audio tour series. Florida Stories is your personal walking tour guide to a variety of Florida towns, big & small. The growing list of tours contain an audio narration and synchronized photos, giving one a unique “behind the scene” view of the town one has selected to tour. All tours are easily accessible on the free Florida Humanities Council “Florida Stories” app.
Walk St. Petersburg will allow visitors and residents to experience the feel of what today keeps St. Petersburg special while telling the story of how the city successfully sold itself over the decades as the embodiment of the Florida dream.
With its stories, historic photographs and guide to some of the city’s best architecture, Walk St. Petersburg will be of interest to the old or young and to the visitor or resident. The tour takes one from the beautiful waterfront to the heart of downtown along Central Avenue to the 600 Block, to Mirror Lake and to City Hall before ending in Williams Park.
In addition to the audio tour, St. Petersburg Preservation offers an extensive guided walking tour program with tours offered each Saturday October thru April, as well as additional tour dates. The guided tours include not only downtown but also many of the city’s special historic neighborhoods. The tour schedule is available at www.stpetepreservation.org.
