Guests will enjoy partaking in prohibition cocktails, including the sidecar or an old-fashioned, and going on a customized picnic after a horse-drawn carriage tour of downtown St. Petersburg. Patrons will also be given dance lessons at the Fred Astaire Dance Studio where they'll learn how to do the Charleston, once banned for being too scandalous!
Also included is dinner for two on each night of your stay at Marchand's Bar & Grill, the resort's onsite restaurant. A 1925 Classic Dining menu will be on offer that captures the decadence of the 20s and boasts three courses of delicious fare such as lamb shank, pork belly and dark chocolate waffles.
Opened on New Year's Eve in 1925, The Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club in St. Petersburg is the perfect place to experience the thrill of the Roaring 20's. The resort is even listed on the National Register of Historic Places making any old sport's stay even more authentic.
The Roaring 20's Experience package includes an upgraded bay view guest room and starts at $379 per night. With the luxurious amenities, period surroundings and a view of the water just outside your window, the infamous green light that entranced Gatsby himself will surely be within reach.
