Weekends at St. Pete PierSt. Pete Pier is a destination any day of the week, but the #2 new attraction in the U.S. truly comes alive on the weekend. Take your pick of various morning workouts from Pilates on the Pier to a Get Fit Bootcamp. Stroll alongside the Marketplace and check out the unique keepsakes local artisans sell. Enjoy dinner and a cocktail at the Teak Restaurant or Pier Teaki and bask in the gorgeous Florida sunset.
