If you have nothing else to do - user review
The shopping didn't have much to offer that you couldn't find in any mall. The aquarium, which I took a quick glance through the entrance from the gift shop, looked like an expensive tro...

The Pier | Museum/Attraction Review | St. Petersburg | Frommers.com - expert review

The Pier - user review
A five story pier that extends 1/4 mile into Tampa Bay. You can either walk to the end or take a trolley. There is plenty to see and do with shops, dining, a hands on museum for kids and an aquarium. You can even try and catch fish if you want. The Pier is also home to the famous Columbia Restaurant...

Very good! - user review
I brought my 1 and 4 year old here on an overcast day and they did not want to leave. There is a special enclosed area with lots of activities for wee ones. They included building bl...

Big Disappointment - user review
Too pricy! $9.00 general admission beginning with 2 year olds ! Only a handful of interactives which didn't seem to excite the children at all. I could find a better way...

The Pier - user review
Five stories of fun and food on the water. We made a quick detour around most of the mall shops and spent an hour on the observation deck watching the sailboats. There was an outdoor Blues festival going on next door and the music carried well on the gentle breeze. A street clown stole my heart when...
