We had a very fun time at the Sand Pebble Resort, located on Treasure Island, Florida, just outside St. Petersburg, eating at some great restaurants, snorkeling, and fishing. While Tampa/St. Pete are just minutes away, this place was great for family relaxation.
The night we arrived the St. Pete Symphony orchestra had a free concert on the beach a 10 minute walk from our condo. WOW! It was GREAT and there was a wonderful fireworks show afterwards.
We swam and caught and released baby seahorses, triggerfish, and pufferfish in the surf right in front of this wonderful HUGE timeshare. We went deep-sea fishing in the Gulf and took a snorkeling excursion where dolphins came to ride our boat's wake to the sounds of the Beach Boys. Awesome! We swam right past a manatee and got to see wild gopher tortoises up close. They love grapes!
We ate at some nice restaurants. Our favorite was Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse.
This town had some nightclubs, but was also very family-oriented.
