Best of St Petersburg Steps from ONE St Petersburg

The vibrant city of St. Petersburg is the midst of a downtown renaissance which was celebrated recently with the announcement of this year's list of "Best of" attractions, business, beaches and parks. The elective downtown atmosphere has been revitalized by a slew of new business and luxury residential developments, like Kolter Urban's ONE St. Petersburg project, which is set to be the new iconic landmark of the St. Petersburg skyline. Below are few highlights of the award winners from St. Petersburg.

Best Restaurant: Red Mesa Cantina

4912 4th St. N.
St. Petersburg, FL 33703-3819

Red Mesa Cantina

In 2009, the Veytias opened Red Mesa Cantina, in the heart of Downtown St. Petersburg. Red Mesa Cantina offers a social dining environment with latin-inspired small plates, indoor and outdoor dining, two full bars as well as a popular Saturday and Sunday brunch service. Cantina's Tequila Bar boasts the one of the largest, if not the largest, selections of Tequilas and Mezcals in the Southern United States.

Best Rooftop Bar: The Canopy Rooftop Lounge

340 Beach Dr, NE
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

The Canopy Rooftop Lounge

Occupying prime real estate, The Canopy Rooftop Lounge is perched atop The Birchwood in the heart of St. Petersburg's waterfront. Guests will settle in for a casual yet South beach inspired "see and be seen" experience of breathtaking views, invigorating libations and farm to table tantalizing entrees.

Best Park: Fort De Soto Park

3500 Pinellas Bayway S.
Tierra Verde, FL 33715

Fort De Soto Park

Whether you are sitting on the beach or kayaking near the still water's edge at Fort De Soto, you find yourself absorbed in the abundance of natural beauty for as far as the eye can see. The complexity of the ecology is not immediately apparent, but the park offers the greatest diversity of systems just about anywhere. Emerging from the wealth of bird life, sea life, wildlife and plant life is the majestic tapestry called Fort De Soto.

Best Beach: St. Pete Beach

St. Pete Beach

St. Pete Beach's shores include the longest undeveloped stretch of public beach in the county at Pass-a-Grille Beach. Live it up with a variety of water sports, from parasailing and stand-up paddleboarding to windsurfing and kiteboarding. There are plenty of places to set up camp in St. Pete Beach—the town is sprinkled with nostalgic Old Florida motels and inns. If you'd rather opt for the five-star experience, The Don CeSar, known as the Pink Palace, or the TradeWinds Island Resorts, offer beachfront property along with full-service amenities.

Best Museum: The Dali Museum

One Dali Blvd.
St. Petersburg, FL 33701

The Dali Museum

The Dalí Museum houses more than 2,000 works of art in 20,000 square feet of gallery space, including numerous oils, watercolors, sketches, sculptures and other objects. The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, houses the broadest range of Dalí artworks, some of them created expressly for the museum. But St. Petersburg's Dalí Museum is home to the most comprehensive collection of the artist's work outside Europe.
