Originally St. Petersburg’s BayWalk, the Sundial St. Pete is a two-story open air shopping center in the heart of downtown.

It includes a wide variety of restaurants and shops, including the Locale Market, Ruths Chris Steakhouse, and White House Black Market. It has since become a landmark for St. Petersburg with its nearly two-story, functional sundial at the heart of its courtyard, designed by Emmy Award-winning production designer, René Lagler. The sundial is surrounded by bronze dolphins created by Mark Aeling, leaping out of the fountain in honor of the waterfront city. In this courtyard, the outdoor mall also hosts events throughout the year. The Sundial has become a center for St. Pete, a hotspot for high-end shopping, dining, and appreciation of the city’s unique culture.
