  • Benjamin's Studios
    For owners Jo Massaro and Karen Ierna, Benjamin's Studios is all about creativity. They showcase this passion for creativity with the imaginative hairstyles and glowing skin they impart in the salon and spa, but also in the Treasure Island facility's onsite art gallery, which displays work from local artists. There's even a fashion boutique overflowing with men's and women's clothing and accessories. Jo and Karen primarily put their 30+ years of hair experience to use in the hair studio. Here, they craft new 'dos using foil highlights, perms, and straightening techniques—techniques the designers of Pisa's famous tower boldly ignored. The spa’s aestheticians, meanwhile, release stress by rendering massages, mani-pedis, and ionic footbath services. They also perform eight skin-type-specific facials, such as teen, men's, and problematic, and they enhance them with aromatherapy and Chakra testing.

  • Morean Arts Center
    The Morean Arts Center connects visitors with multiple forms of modern art, welcoming them to explore galleries, a glass studio, and a clay center, all of which host classes, exhibits, events, and retail opportunities. The center was founded in 1917 and has served as the community's art center ever since. The Chihuly Collection showcases a permanent exhibition of world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly's installations. His magnificent bright forms, many of which are inspired by nature, spiral toward the ceiling, housed in a 10,000-square-foot structure designed by award-winning architect Alberto Alfonso. A visit to the Glass Studio and Hot Shop immerses guests in the creation of glass works, as artists manipulate molten glass into vibrant orbs and vases. At the Morean Center for Clay visitors can view amazing works of art in the gallery and watch artists work during classes and open-studio time. The center also operates as a retail venue, where customers can purchase local and regional art.

  • Great Exploration Children's Museum
    Since opening in 1987, Great Explorations Children's Museum has sparked a love for learning for visitors of all ages with a constantly rotating lineup of interactive exhibits that fill 18,000 square feet with touch, light, and sound. Whether they're learning about nearby sea life at Beth's Beach, honing their knowledge of textures on a crawl through the Touch Tunnel, exploring arachnids in the Critter Cave, or playing instruments in the Musical Magical Treehouse, kids benefit from each exhibit's emphasis on interactivity. Museum guides lead lesson programs in a multidisciplinary style, though visitors can also find the friendly professionals and their orange polo shirts bouncing between exhibits while performing science experiments, dancing, and playing music. In addition to visiting the museum's permanent exhibits, kids can also extend their learning journeys through the museum's lengthy list of camps and programs. The museum even takes its show on the road, with the Express Yourself Art Mobile bringing creative craft opportunities to neighborhoods around St. Petersburg.

  • Zen Glass Studios
    Much like professional skydivers, wily coyotes, and other careers that involve a degree of danger, most professional glassblowers aren’t self-taught. Joshua Poll, however, learned to harness the glass furnace all by himself, today imparting more than a decade of self-taught experience to Zen Glass Studios, where he and fellow glass smith David Walker create custom works of art by hand. Together they shape glass into authentic and unique pieces, including custom glassware and jewelry to wear while meeting a spouse’s goldfish for the first time. Within their studio, Joshua and David teach workshops and classes, during which students survey basic to advanced glass-blowing techniques, crafting their own handmade objects such as ornaments, beer glasses, and vases. The duo also runs a full glassblower training program, which follows a syllabus structured to arm all students with all the necessary skills to set out on their own in the industry, just as Joshua did all those years ago.
