While St. Pete Beach is famous for award-winning beaches, the neighboring city of St. Pete is a mecca of cultural attractions, including the Salvador Dalí Museum, the Chihuly Collection, and The James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art. Days are meant for sunning and museum hopping, and nights should be spent discovering hidden speakeasies like The Saint and Dirty Laundry. The Saint Hotel; thesainthotel.com
