“ (There is nothing about Tennis at this park but for some reason that's in the title and it won't let me remove?) Ride bikes from Flamingo Shack to this lovely bayside park near the Historic Vinoy Hotel. Bike, skate, run or walk the path through the palms and oak trees along Tampa Bay. Set up a hammock and relax. Watch the dolphins feed before sunset. Walk to the sandy beach and play volleyball.”

“They have three locations in St. Pete but this one is the closest. They started on 4th St. in 2010 but had to move across the street to their current location to make room for Trader Joe’s. Casual Mexican food done well. ”
