A new tourist attraction

For my Sunday night walk in late July, I decided to go to the new Pier in downtown St. Pete. Brett went with me since he wanted to see it as well. We parked far away behind the Vinoy hotel and tried to stay away from the crowds as we walked around the yacht basin. It was a beautiful night to be out and everyone had the same idea.

The netting over an open field before the pier changes color at night.

Looking down at the pier from the elevated platform. We didn’t walk past this point since the pier building at the end looked very crowded.  There are restaurants at the end but you had to have a reservation to go in and masks were required. We thought we would save that for another time.

There’s a small public beach right next to the pier.

Looking back at downtown St. Pete, the sun was just starting to go down.

Some of the artwork around the pier area. It was a fun walk and I plan to get back there during the week after work hoping it won’t be so crowded.

  1. That’s a nice addition to the city. I love attractive waterfronts. Marina’s are amazing. If you stay where you are supposed to stay you can get all sorts of nice photographs of the watercraft.
