Large upsidedown-pyramid-shaped Pier with restaurants and shops on the St. Petersburg, Florida Bay.
Pelicans mill outside the Pier Bait House, waiting. The Bait House, a freestanding fishing-needs kiosk on the St. Petersburg Municipal Pier, is well-known for selling fish to folks who feed a regular group of pelicans. At $5 for five fish, feeding has become so regular that a half-dozen birds never leave that part of the pier. When it's not about to storm, tourists often walk up to within arm's length of them.

There is a little oasis in the middle of Treasure Island, Florida which is the property of the City of St. Petersburg. It has a parking lot, a food and drink snack bar with suntan lotions and beach toys plus a shady restr area, a playground, charcoal berbecue pits, restrooms, outside beach shower and indoor hot shpwers plus they now sell beer. Treasure Island Beach is one of the few beaches that allow alcoholic beverages on the beach as long as they are not in glass containers. This St. Petersburg-run beach rest stop also provides free-rental balloon-tire wheelchairs to take disabled persons to the beach.There is a mile-long (almost) walkway here that tourists use for bicycling, walking, running, skating and skateboarding.
