Back by popular demand: Tour St. Pete aboard a stunning Star Trolley

Our first trolley tour this year takes place on Sunday, February 4 at 10am. It’s limited to only 28 spots. St. Petersburg is more than our dynamic downtown; it’s a city of fantastically unique neighborhoods, each with its own flavor and flair. Now you can tour the many boroughs of the ‘Burg with historian Monica Kile on this unique historic tour of the city aboard the dreamy Star Trolley

On this 2.5-hour tour, we will explore the mysterious Driftwood, the hidden Lang Court, and the one-of-a-kind Pink Streets neighborhoods. You will learn the story of historically African-American main streets like 22nd Street South in the Deuces, and see how the interstate and baseball stadium disrupted life in the Gas Plant district. We will see the stone mansions of Allendale, the city’s first synagogue, and more. Tour guests will learn about St. Pete’s diverse and fascinating history and see sites that only a longtime local would know.

Want to dive deeper? Go “Beyond Downtown: The Edge and More” 

This in-depth tour delves further into St. Pete’s past by visiting parts of the city that many people have never seen: the Edge District, the Gas Plant, and Methodist Town. This is a rotating tour with only two dates on the calendar right now. Get your tickets before they sell out!

Once the hub of St. Pete’s industrial life, the Edge is now an eclectic mix of historic spaces and modern amenities, bordered on either side by historically African-American neighborhoods that also offered a refuge for some of St. Pete’s Jewish merchants during periods of anti-semitism. We’ll visit the remaining buildings and lost landmarks of these constantly changing neighborhoods.

We begin at Green Bench Brewery which kindly offers our guests half off of any beer in their tap room either before or after the tour!

Want to dive deeper? Go “The Wonderful Waterfront” 

This is a rotating tour with only two dates on the calendar right now. Get your tickets before they sell out! On “The Wonderful Waterfront”, you’ll learn about the waterfront parks, the history of Spring Training, how zoning changed Beach Drive, and more. Get tickets for the waterfront tour here.
