On this Florida holiday you can revel in the hustle and bustle of Orlando, combined with the relaxation on the warm sands of St Pete’s beaches.
Orlando offers no shortage of things to do. Take advantage of experiences that are uniquely Orlando, like flying through a swamp on an airboat or getting up close with wildlife at Gatorland or SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove. Sports lovers can cheer on the Magic NBA basketball team at the new Amway Center or take a ride on one of multiple zip-lines in the area.
And after the energetic scramble of the parks enjoy the sandy beaches and inviting waters of St Petes/ Clearwater will be just what the doctor ordered.
Orlando - Bring your own poncho if you don't like getting soaked on water rides. You can find them for less than $1 at stores like Wal-Mart. They often cost $8 in the park. Plus you don't feel obligated to have to carry them around when you are done with them.

St Petes - Shell Key is a quick boat ride from St. Pete. The beach is more of a laying out and looking for shells beach rather than for swimming. There are a lot of boats and jet skis coming close to shore which I found annoying for snorkeling.
