Below I've outlined our basic itinerary and how we experienced the Tampa Bay area of Florida.
Day 1: Arrival in St. Pete Beach
|Dining beachside at Caddy's on the Beach in Treasure Island|
Day 2: Exploring downtown St. Petersburg
|The Pier in St. Petersburg|
That afternoon, we introduced the arrow to the condo's heated pool and it was love at first splash. He would proceed to beg for the pool throughout the trip, and we had lots of fun indulging him! After his afternoon nap, we went to the Sloppy Pelican, a beachside restaurant just a few blocks from our condo. We capped off this sweet day with a stop for ice cream.
Day 3: Beautiful Fort De Soto

We ate lunch back at the condo, and then hit the pool again. After the arrow's nap, we drove up the beach to North Redington. We stopped at a playground to let the arrow stretch his legs, and then went to the Conch Republic Grill for dinner. On our way home, we walked around Johns Pass. A fun boardwalk and lots of shops and restaurants, it was a great area for an evening stroll (and ice cream, of course.)
Day 4: Florida Aquarium and Ybor City

Day 5: Saying our goodbyes
|Goodbye, St. Pete Beach!|
I'll be blogging about many of these adventures in much greater detail in the weeks to come. Please check back to read more about our fun in Florida!
