Aah, August! Some call it the dog days of summer, but it’s always better at the beach!
Local Floridians will tell you the secret for enjoying this warmest of our months: either be in the water, or in the air conditioning! The Gulf of Mexico water is always refreshing and our two pools at Alden Suites Beachfront Resort are ready to cool you right off!
We’ve collected some fun activities for you and the family to enjoy your stay in St. Pete Beach this month: art museums, baseball, a 5K, and a reggae show are just a few of the great St. Pete Beach things to do in August.
