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.


Stop in for a craft beer at a brewery
