When the hottest time of year meets hurricane season in The Gulf, patio dining is out and days spent under a roof in the AC are very much in. Whether you’re escaping the elements on a rainy day or just staying out of the summer heat, there are plenty of fun indoor activities in St. Pete. From kid-friendly to adult-centered, and relaxing to interactive, this is our list of the best things to do indoors in St. Petersburg.

Hit one of St. Pete’s many museums and galleries

Featuring art, history and plenty more, the wide range of museums in The Burg could keep you occupied for an entire week, let alone just one rainy day. If it’s for the whole family, check out the Great Explorations Children’s Museum. For those with an appreciation for art, stop by the Dali Museum and its rotating exhibits. And for a deeper look into the realities of our past, the Florida Holocaust Museum is a meaningful, and incredibly well done experience.

Spectator or participant, let your inner athlete shine

Whether you’re getting your sweat on or just watching others work, there are plenty of options for something a little more on the active side of things. Check to see if the Rays or Rowdies are in town if you want to catch a game (Rays games are completely indoors, of course, and there is plenty of covered seating at the Rowdies stadium).

For something interactive to do, find a class with Body Electric Yoga, go for a climb at Vertical Ventures, or hop in a go-kart at the Tampa Bay Grand Prix. Or for some classic gaming, stop by Park and Rec downtown or Right Around the Corner Arcade Brewery in the Grand Central District.
