First Look: Enjoy The New St. Pete Pier as a Family

The St. Pete Pier is finally complete, and the grand opening is today! However, the celebrations will not go as originally planned for this week. Due to the pandemic, people will have to make reservations online in order to access the newly renovated St. Pete Pier. Afterward, it will be open to the entire public to enjoy the 26-acre space. 
I had the privilege of being able to explore the new St. Pete Pier with my son before it opened to the public. It was an incredible exPIERience! 

Let's take a look at some of the cool things to check out with the family. 
Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center

The Discovery Center, a facility operated by the Tampa Bay Watch, gives visitors the opportunity to learn about Tampa Bay's ecosystem. It's an entertaining and hands-on experience for the entire family! My five-year old enjoyed learning about the spider crab, sea stars, snails, barnacles and sea urchins. There's also a wave tank and interactive sandbox that was a major hit with my son.
