By:Laine McKenna

1) Convenience - With year-round, gorgeous weather, you can visit the area anytime, unlike other destinations that thrive on seasonality. Even on Christmas day, you can find Floridians basking in the sunshine.

2) Affordability - Because of the great weather year-round, you can score some amazing deals on airfare and St Pete Beach Vacation Rentals when visiting in the off-season.

3) Recreation - Attractions and activities are numerous on St. Pete Beach, which means there's something for everyone. You can rent waverunners, take a fishing charter out into the Gulf, go parasailing, play beach volleyball, tennis, golf, shop - you name it!

4) Seafood at its Finest - Nothing beats a fresh catch, which is why St. Pete Beach has some of the best seafood restaurants around, including Snappers Sea Grill, Mad Fish, the Hurricane, the Wharf, Patrick's Bayside Grill, and Ocean Breeze Restaurant and Tapas Bar.

5) Sporting Events - The Tampa Bay area is known for its year-round sporting events, and also for its professional and collegiate sports teams including the Rays, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Lightning, and USF Bulls.

6) Beach Bars in the Sun - Between Caddy's on Sunset Beach and the Undertow on St. Pete Beach, there's plenty of bar-hopping for the younger crowd, although often times it's a mix of all ages, just like the area. Parking can be difficult, especially at Caddy's, which is why it's recommended, that you stay in a nearby Treasure Island Vacation Rental or St Pete Beach Vacation Condo - both will put you within walking distance.

7) Spectacular Sunsets - You will never witness anything like it. The sunsets on Florida's Gulf coast are truly awe-inspiring. It's just something you'll have to see to believe. Watch it with your family or your significant other, and capture a moment you will remember forever.

8) Nightlife - You can opt to stay on the beach and hang out at some of the bars, or you can venture downtown and hit up Vintage, Push, the Garden, Café Alma, Durty Nelly's Irish Pub, or catch a concert at Jannus Live, formerly known as Jannus Landing. All places cater to people young and old, but the standard age for going out in St. Petersburg is 21 and up.

9) Outdoors and Nature - St. Pete Beach and the surrounding St. Petersburg area has some great places for nature lovers including Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, Fort DeSoto (great for camping), Weedon Island Preserve, and more! See Florida just how mother nature intended it to be!

10) Safety - Safety is imperative when traveling, and St. Pete Beach is one of the safest beach destinations in the U.S. due to the fact that despite strong tourism ties, it's a place where families live year round. The area is well-policed, so you can feel comfortable walking along sidewalks, even at night.
