Getting Here & Parking

We don’t want parking and traffic to turn your Pier experience into anything but great, so here’s some helpful information.


If arriving via I-275, follow the interstate signs and exit onto I-375. I-375 becomes 4th Avenue North and guests should follow that to the end where it forms a T with Beach Drive. If guests wish to avoid some traffic, consider taking a left on Beach Drive, then a right on 5th Avenue North and a right on Bayshore Drive. You will find the Pier entrance at the next left.

Getting Around Town with the Looper

The St. Pete Pier offers over 500 on-site parking spaces as well as extensive bike parking and access via the Downtown Looper and Central Avenue Trolley. Peak traffic and parking demand are occurring most Fridays between 4 pm and 9 pm as well as on Saturdays from 1 pm to 8 pm, so expect more traffic and longer waits during those times.

Guests arriving at peak periods may wish to head straight to overflow parking options approximately 3 blocks away from the Pier. Enter the Sundial Parking Garage via 2nd Street North, just south of 2nd Avenue North and then access the Pier by walking east on 2nd Avenue. Alternatively, the Al Lang Parking Lot entrance is located on 1st Avenue South between Beach and Bayshore Drive. Access the Pier by walking north on Bayshore Drive.
