Wondering what to do on a summer mid-week evening? Join SPP for a leisurely and fun downtown stroll, starting in front of the Detroit Hotel building - where the city got its start in 1888! Participants will learn a bit about St. Pete history while getting to see some of the best of downtown's historic buildings and architecture. The tour will be led by Will Michaels, a local historian and author who regularly writes about the city's history in the Old Northeast Journal.
Tour is free for members, just $10 for nonmembers. Reservations encouraged but not required.
A fun Thursday evening stroll is a great way to head into a summer weekend. St. Petersburg Preservation, Keep St. Pete Lit and Gulfport Historical Society are partnering to offer this fun tweak to the traditional Gulfport walking tour, a historic tour with a literary twist! Tour goers will learn about the history of Gulfport from tour guide Cathy Salustri, herself an accomplished author, while gaining inspiration from local writers reading from their work. All in all, it makes for a special evening! And don’t forget, downtown Gulfport offers some fun places after the tour to get a drink or something to eat.
Reservations recommended as tour size is limited.
