If you're planning a vacation trip to St. Petersburg - or just driving through while on your way down the Western Florida coast - then one place you should be sure to visit is the city's beautiful Sunken Gardens. Tucked away on four acres of land in the middle of the city, the Sunken Gardens are a historic roadside attraction now operated and maintained by the city itself.
Visiting these gardens make for a peaceful, delightful break from the beach or touring the many shops, restaurants and other attractions of downtown St. Petersburg. Over a hundred years old, the Sunken Gardens are home to many beautiful, stately and old tropical plants, trees and flowers that will delight the visitor. It's also a wonderful place to get out your camera and spend some time photographing nature's beauty.
