The St Petersburg/Clearwater area is popular any time of year but as you might expect, it’s especially appealing during the cold winter months when “snow birds,” want to escape the frigid grip of Father Winter.
It’s not surprising that hotel and resort prices fluctuate with the seasons with winter, holidays and “spring break” vacations commanding the highest prices. There are some deals, however to be found in tried and true establishments such as the Thunderbird Beach Resort, Bilmar Resort and Beachcomber Resort.
If being on the beach isn't important, then the downtown Cordova Inn, blending both history with modern-day touches, is close to some of the area’s finest museums, shopping and tourist sites.
For longer stays, Alden Suites and the Hotel Cabana Clearwater are excellent options for the budget-conscious visitor. If you’re traveling with children, check ahead before you book anything because many resorts offer free stays and/or free breakfast for children under a certain age.
No matter when you go, just keep in mind that there is never a bad time to visit this beautiful area!
