Tierra Verde Resort - 1489


Best place to go is Fort Desoto Beaches. Absolutely beautiful!

Also, Clearwater Beach at Pier 60 before sunset they have a great celebration with street entertainers and crafts. Lots of fun for all ages!

Quick Tips:

Most museums close before 5pm and it seems that downtown rolls up then. Be very conscious of your speed in the beach areas, the police are!

Sorrento's on Tierra Verde has EXCELLENT pizza, calzones, and Italian food in general!

Best Way To Get Around:

Driving is fine, but there is a convenient shuttle up and down the beach and from downtown St. Pete.

Casual Mom and Pop Italian restaurant with outstanding pizza, strombolis, and calzones. Delicious garlic rolls. I didn't try anything else because I was hooked on what I had tried.

They have about 12 tables in the "Tierra Verde Downtown Center", which really is the strip mall on the main drag of Tierra Verde on the way to Fort Desoto. In the week we stayed in Tierra Verde, we ate there four times!
