Fort De Soto is in Pinellas County in the Tampa Bay area on the Florida coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
Fort De Soto was built between 1898 and 1900 on Mullett Key – one of a string of islands along the coast.

Fort De Soto Park is on part of a chain of islands in the Tampa Bay area on Florida’s coast of the Gulf of Mexico.
We found the beach littered with shells and even a few starfish. Like everywhere else near water in this part of Florida, we saw plenty of birds.
We were even lucky enough to run into some kite surfers at the far end of the park with the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in the background.
We spent a breezy December evening watching the sun go down over the Gulf of Mexico at Pass-A-Grille on St. Pete Beach on the east coast of Florida.
It was mostly cloudy but the sun got through just enough to make the drive worthwhile.
Our visit included dinner on the balcony of the Brass Monkey Bar and Grill.
The Warehouse District of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, is better known for its art galleries than its street art. There are still lots of pretty cool murals in the area if you know where to look.
If you’re not sure if you’re really in The Edge District in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, the cat mural on the Edge Animal Hospital is an obvious clue.
The Central Arts District in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, has murals almost everywhere you look.
After a visit to the Chihuly Collection, which technically is in the Waterfront Museum District, we started walking in the direction of The Edge District.
