For The Bookworms: Book + Bottle
Wine and books? Yes, please. One of our favorite bookstores in Tampa Bay, Book + Bottle, is a sustainable, locally and women-owned business. Book + Bottle provides a welcoming environment and a unique reading and shopping experience where you can discuss your favorite books together while sharing a bottle of wine. How romantic!
For The Artsy: St. Pete Second Saturday Artwalk
St. Petersburg proudly celebrates the arts, and features numerous museums, exhibitions and festivals that are a perfect setting for a date. The Second Saturday Artwalk occurs every second Saturday monthly from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. and features 40 studios and 200 artists from different art disciplines. If you want to explore the Waterfront District galleries, we highly recommend hopping on the free Downtown Looper, which runs every 15 minutes.
