Saint Petersburg Pier : Florida

Saint Petersburg’s old pier is the perfect spot to enjoy scenic panoramic views of Saint Petersburg from above overlooking the city from the sea. Not too sure what to expect, my little sis and I were looking for a perfect spot to rest where we could enjoy a good breeze and views of Saint Petersburg and the Tampa Bay. And what a lovely surprise the old pier was. Shaped as an inverted pyramid, the top deck offers breathtaking views of the entire area, and with a restaurant-bar offering Mojitos and small snacks, it was the best break we could hope for.
