Had an awesome time at The Dali Museum last Saturday with my daughter and grandkids. The Dali Museum gives kids’ tours on Saturday mornings and has a kids craft room where they can create Dali-inspired art pieces. Granddaughter’s collage is below but my Grandson made an interactive movable fly & dragonfly collage. When I played, the dragonfly won the race. A good time was had by all! Thank you MY FAMILY!! So nice to have you visit-much too short of a visit, as usual.

So if you’re in St Pete, with or without kids, The Dali Museum is a wonderful place to spend the day. There are permanent displays of Dali’s work and special exhibits of other artists that have collaborated with or been influenced by Salvador Dali. SO you need to check their website calendar.

Wine Weekend St. Pete
Enjoy some of the world’s most stellar wines during Wine Weekend St. Pete, benefitting the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg! The weekend will kick off on Friday in the museum with “Fetes a Versailles” for sponsors and VIPs. The masked balls of Louis XV will be brought back to life and a five-star dinner of French cuisine will be served. The International Wine Auction will follow on Saturday with an after party where you can enjoy fine wines, hors-d’oeuvres, and music. The weekend will conclude with “Le Champagne Brunch” on Sunday at 11 am. A wide variety of champagne, international culinary delights, and live music will be featured, toasting Wine Weekend 2018 and the Museum.

Clear blue waters and long stretches of sand have always been the appeal of St. Petersburg, Fla. But these days, visitors are just as likely to dive into the Tampa Bay town’s vibrant arts and culture scene.

Over the last decade, the Sunshine City has evolved into a creative hub, with world-class museums, thriving galleries and bold street art that have the once-neglected downtown booming again. And soon there will be much more to admire: Three ambitious new museums will open in St. Pete over the next two years, cementing its reputation as one of Florida’s cultural hot spots.

Here’s how a short trip to the ’Burg should look:

Modal Trigger
A hot glass demo at the Duncan McClellan Gallery.

After a blissed-out day at the beach, head into town for a late-afternoon stroll through the dazzling collection of glass sculptures crafted by Dale Chihuly at the Chihuly Collection. Stock up on colorful wares at its gift shop, then hit nearby Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails for oysters and craft cocktails.

In the mood for something sweet? Grab a gourmet ice pop at The Hyppo, which boasts a staggering array of flavors from pumpkin cheesescake to pineapple cilantro. After the sun sets, savor a fresh catch at one of St. Pete’s fine restaurants; you can’t go wrong with the olive oil-seared grouper at FarmTable Cucina ($30). After dessert, shuffle on over to the historic St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club— known as the world’s largest club for the sport — for a few late-night matches.

Thanks to St. Pete’s laid-back yet imaginative spirit, there’s more art to check out the next day. More than 80 — and counting — eye-catching outdoor murals wrap buildings, walls and a main downtown intersection. “They create a sense of community,” says Derek Donnelly, a local talent behind a number of works. “I credit the art with helping turn around St. Pete.”

Donnelly helps promote the annual Shine St. Petersburg Mural Festival, which wrapped its third iteration last month and is gearing up the next one in the fall of 2018. Local, national and international street artists from as far away as Australia gather to create large-scale, open-air works over 10 days.

According to Donnelly, the best place to start a mural tour is the alley behind the stores on the 600 North block of downtown’s Central Avenue. The lane is so jammed with trippy wall tattoos — including several of his compositions featuring dinosaur and sea creature — that even the dumpsters are decorated.

Modal Trigger
The Dali MuseumDana Hoff

Don’t forget a visit to St. Pete’s popular Dali Museum, ($24 for adults), which houses the largest collection of works by the mustachioed genius outside his native Spain. On a smaller scale, more than 75 galleries dot the town’s seven arts districts. In the Warehouse Arts District, don’t miss the astounding glass works at Duncan McClellan Gallery — or its romantic sculpture garden, or its hot shop demonstrations by a team of artists.

Best of all, St. Pete has much more creative capital in the pipeline.

The first outpost — the Imagine Museum, which centers on glass art — opens its doors in January. A repurposed school will exhibit pieces from 55 renowned glass artists, including Harvey Littleton and Marlene Rose.

The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art will also debut early next year. Occupying most of a city block, it will showcase works in oil, ink, stone and steel — evoking the frontier spirit and celebrating life in the wild. The works were collected over decades by Tom James, chairman emeritus of investment company Raymond James, and his wife Mary.

The biggest passion project of all is downtown’s $70 million Museum of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, scheduled to open in spring 2019. The monumental building, designed by Cuban-born local architect Alberto Alfonso, is being purpose-built to display businessman Rudy Ciccarello’s extensive decorative arts collection.

With so much art on tap — as well as year-round sunshine and those irresistible white-sand beaches — it’s worth adding St. Pete to your vacation short list.

Where to eat and sleep

From landmark hotels to catch-of-the-day restaurants, St. Petersburg has the hospitality waterfront covered. Here’s a look at some local favorites:

  • Hotels
Modal Trigger
Base yourself at Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach.HP

Active much? Take your pick of four sports at the historic Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, which features 18 holes, tennis courts, a private 74-slip marina and two pools (from $264).

For a chic sleep, book a reservation at the 18-room Birchwood Inn. You can’t beat the elegant rooms with four-poster beds — or the spectacular rooftop lounge (from $310).

The Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach is about 40 minutes outside of downtown St. Pete but mere seconds from a spectacular beach. (Clearwater Beach, in fact, was rated the best in the country by TripAdvisor last year.) With a pool and a spa onsite, it’s easy to unwind here (from $174).

  • Food
Modal Trigger
The Reading Room’s stylish staff.Partho

Cool and creative, the Reading Room serves delicious garden-inspired and wood-fired fare. Many of the herbs and vegetables are grown in the beds outside.

The seafood-centric menu changes daily at swanky Sea Salt, but the dishes are always fresh and succulent. Don’t miss the happy hour.

Happy Holidays, however you celebrate!

Below is a list of some of the various holiday events going on in December 2017 throughout Tampa and Ibor City.

From movies in the park to Twilight 5k runs,

from boat parades to Chanukah festival fun,

a lot of good things for everyone!
