Hey Sunshine Lovers!
Buckle up for a virtual journey to the enchanting Gulf Coast, where every moment is a dream come true. Join me as I reminisce about our Florida getaway unforgettable weekend in St. Pete Beach, Florida, with my mom and niece. It’s time to relive the magic!
Day 1: Welcome to Pink Paradise Our escapade started with a Tampa touchdown and a swift ride to our haven, The Don Cesar. Picture a pink palace by the sea – not just a hotel but a luxury kingdom with two pools, multiple bars, a spa, and a private beach. Pro tip: Upgrade to a junior suite for that extra touch of glam. The night unfolded with a chic dinner at Maritana, setting the tone for a glam night at the hotel bar, complete with 500 Rummy, new friends, and late-night shenanigans.
Day 2: Seaside Breakfast and Italian Elegance The next day, we kicked off the morning at the vintage Sea Horse Restaurant, dishing out those beachy vibes since 1938. Shopping at cute boutiques, scoring the chicest Gucci sunnies, and sipping Blood Marys was just the beginning. A glamorous dinner at Palm Court Italian Grill made us feel like we were in an Italian movie, with bruschetta dreams that lingered well into the night.
Day 3: Brunch Goals and Beach Bliss Saturday started fashionably late with brunch at the legendary Frog’s Pond. Vegan oatmeal spread? Yes, please! Then, it was all about soaking in the sun at the private Don Cesar beach. Picture-perfect moments, lattes from Grove Surf and Coffee, and a dinner date at Treasure Island’s Middle Grounds Grill (with vegan options for the win) completed our day of beachside bliss
Day 4: Farmer’s Market Fun and Downtown Delights Sunday brought a brunch date at Chill Restaurant amidst a lively farmer’s market. Vegan hash? Nailed it! More beach time ensued before we glammed up for a birthday bash in downtown St. Pete. Gratzzi, with its NY mobster vibe, wowed us with a table-side spectacle – the Bada Bing! A sing-along, a divine tiramisu, and card games sealed the night with perfection.
Hearts Full, Spirits Lifted As Monday rolled around, we left with more than just a tan – we left with hearts full of joy and memories that’ll last a lifetime. Ready for more glam getaways? Stay tuned for the next adventure, fellow sun-seekers!
Sending you sunshine and sparkles,
