With brilliant red curtains behind them, a trio of string players takes the stage and begins to flood St. Petersburg Nights' dining room with festive music. Before them on the wood-paneled dance floor, a woman flutters scarves into the air as she gracefully twirls. This is a standard scene on Friday and Saturday nights, offering entertainment to diners as they enjoy classic Russian and Ukrainian fare such as steamed pierogi, beef stroganoff, and crêpes stuffed with red caviar or chicken. Free burlesque shows are also available on Thursday nights. The kitchen crew crafts these dishes by following recipes passed down for two centuries, making the meals older than Rip Van Winkle's teddy bear. Patrons can take in the show while comfortably seated in padded wicker armchairs, or retreat to the hookah lounge to practice sending smoke signals that request martini refills.
Planted adjacent to 20 acres of private, white-sand beach space on St. Pete Beach, TradeWinds Island Grand Resort provides a range of ways for its all-ages visitors to frolic in Gulf of Mexico waters. The sweeping hotel’s tall white buildings surround five heated pools and secluded areas for paddleboat piloting. Attractions are interconnected by a series of walkways, which allow running and playing. Adults can also embark on water-bound adventures that range from parasailing to boating.
The resort also offers land-based fitness programs and spa treatments, some of which take place on the beach, to help guests slough off stress. When not playing in the sand, kids can climb the beach’s three-story inflatable waterslide, or learn about pirate-themed crafts and memoir writing from a costumed Captain RedBeard.

Chillounge Night moves the atmosphere of a nightclub outdoors, freeing warm pulses of bass to tremble under the stars and roll beneath the chatter of guests perched on plush sofas. Toasts are made, adding treble notes to the organic symphony as the sun sinks below the horizon and the atmosphere takes on the festive feeling. Samba dancers parade past tables laden with signature dishes from local restaurants, and fashion shows parade intriguing threads. As fireworks crackle against the darkening sky at some events, live music begins to fuel dancing or make metronomes feel more comfortable.
Nestled in Maritana's cool cocoon of deep-blue aquariums, your adolescent dreams of becoming a marine biologist will merge with your adult palate as you drink in the colorful fish and an equally vibrant menu. An eclectic mix of dishes combine Caribbean cuisine with the home-cooked meals of the American South to form a peninsular portmanteau called Floribbean cuisine. Unlike human-animal hybrids, this combo cuisine suits a wide variety of tastes and poses few, if any, ethical questions.
