Join one of SPP's Special Walking Tours!
Spring weather is the perfect time to join a SPP walking tour! And don't forget, the end of April brings a close to the "regular" Saturday tours so if you've been intending to join a tour now is the time! Our "favorite" tours continue with the "Original" Downtown Tour on April 4. The Waterfront Tour will be featured on March 14 and again on April 11.
In addition to the above tours, SPP will be visiting some of the best of the 'Burg's historic neighborhoods. On March 21 Historic Uptown will be featured! The neighborhood is a National Register listed historic district deriving its significance from the varied and excellent examples of popular styled homes dating from the early 1900's thru the 1920's.
Historic Kenwood will be visited on March 28 (grand prix weekend for those looking for something away from downtown) and again on April 25, the spring season's final tour. These tours, offered in conjunction with the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association are always fun and each is different. Historic Kenwood is known for its bungalow homes.
On April 18 SPP will visit the funky and historic Old Southeast, known for its eclectic styles of homes, hex block sidewalks and historic waterfront Lassing Park. In conjunction with the tour, the neighborhood will be holding its annual plant swap with plants, gardening supplies, tools, etc. available to trade or share. The neighborhood will also have a raffle of donated gardening related items. The plant swap takes place in Chattaway's parking lot from 9-11:30 am. All told, it adds up to a great way to greet the weekend with the plant swap, followed by the walking tour followed and ending with a beer and chatterburger!
Finally, don't forget SPP's next Downtown Lunchtime Tour with SPP president Emily Elwyn on Friday, April 3. The approximately 1 hour tour is a great way to get a quick intro on St. Pete history! Tour starts at noon in front of Mickey's Caf� & Organics at 318 Central Ave.
All of the walking tours are free to SPP members, just $5 for non-members. Saturday tours start at 10 am. Click on the tour links above for more details, starting location for the respective tour and for reservations (recommended but not required).
