1825 4th St. N., St Petersburg (about 19 mile or 30 minutes drive) from Sunsets on the Sand. A beautiful and relaxing way to spend a couple of hours if you just have to get away from the beach (we can’t imagine, but …. if you’re going down to St. Pete for the day anyway – why not stop in?)


Sunken Gardens is a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city. As St. Petersburg’s oldest living museum, this 100-year-old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region.

Unwind as you stroll through meandering paths, lush with exotic plants from around the world. Explore cascading waterfalls, beautiful demonstration gardens, more than 50,000 tropical plants, and flowers.
