From its earliest years as a gritty working waterfront filled with ships and smokestacks to today’s glittering promenade teeming with tourists, St. Petersburg’s public waterfront reveals fascinating details of the city’s history.
Learn how one man worked to transform it from a grubby rail and shipyard to one of the largest public waterfront park systems in the country and hear hidden stories about local landmarks like the Pier, the Vinoy, and the prettiest public restroom you’ll ever see.
You’ll also hear about the things we don’t see anymore, like the waterfront’s segregated beach and the grand hotel that Hollywood blew up. Blending historic photos and live on-site narration, historian Monica Kile will stroll from Demen’s Landing to the Vinoy as she discusses the transformation of the bayfront and ponders what the next 100 years look like as buildings grow taller and more people discover this jewel of Tampa Bay.
