For most of its first century, a Pier has served as a focal point of the city’s waterfront.
The St. Petersburg Pier, known as the “Inverted pyramid,” serves as a focal point for tourism in the area and is open 365 days a year, rain or shine. It welcomes over 1.2 million visitors a year and its attractions include restaurants, retail shops, an aquarium, community meeting space and other similar facilities.
St. Petersburg is currently embarking upon a process to replace the deteriorating Pier, which is slated to close in spring, 2013. Until that time, The Pier and its thriving businesses are open and welcome you to enjoy unparalleled views of Tampa Bay and the downtown waterfront.
