Spring break and Florida go hand in hand, but if there’s one area that caters to families more than the crazy college party crowd, it’s St. Petersburg.
The city of St. Petersburg and its beaches are a quick 25-minute drive south from Tampa via the Howard Franklin Bridge. Families can rent a car from Alamo at Tampa International Airport (TPA) and be on their way to a spring break adventure full of sunshine and local culture in no time flat.
There are two notable areas in St. Pete for families visiting during spring break: The beaches and downtown.
St. Pete Beach
First and foremost, the beautiful beaches are what draw travelers to the gulf coast of Florida— they’re simply spectacular with their soft, sugar-white sand and gentle currents. A string of hotels and restaurants line Gulf Boulevard, giving families endless options suitable for every budget.
