will help you find gifts for everyone on your list (and maybe even something for yourself) among
these great St. Pete Pier local faves.
For the foodie friend.
Teak & Pier Teaki
Know someone who enjoys a great dining experience with a view? A Teak gift card is your answer
and can be used at both Teak and Pier Teaki. Give them the gift of elevated casual dining while
they take in the 360-degree view of Tampa Bay and the St. Pete skyline. At Teak, guests can
choose from a variety of menu options, including specialty seafood dishes like Tuna Tartare,
Cinema Popcorn Coconut Shrimp and Pan-Seared Salmon. On the roof of the Pier Head, guests
can relax with a cocktail at Pier Teaki, a modern take on a classic tiki bar.
Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille
Foodie friends will love a gift card to Doc Ford’s! Serving authentic, local cuisine, this restaurant
gets its namesake from the main character in Florida-themed novels by best-selling author Randy
Wayne White. Guests can experience the 10,000-square-foot space at the Pier or three other
locations south of Tampa Bay. In any case, you’ll always be able to get fresh seafood inspired by
the Caribbean Rim here. Give the gift of flavor this season!
For the lifelong learner.
St. Petersburg Museum of History
St . Petersburg’s unique, 100 -year history is curated through several exhibits you won’t find
anywhere else. A membership to the St. Petersburg Museum of History will give any museum lover an opportunity to explore the archives, collections and exhibits featured. Visitors can check
out Piers through the Years, a newly renovated exhibit that displays the stories behind St . Pete’s
waterfront piers. Shrader’s Little Cooperstown tells the story of America’s pastime and houses
the largest baseball collection certified by Guinness World Records. The Odditorium features
a two-headed calf and a 3,000-year-old Egyptian mummy. There’s plenty more to see, and the
museum is open 7 days a week.
For the nature and science lover.
Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center
This space at The Pier is a must-see for people of all ages, and a gift card to the Tampa Bay Watch
Discovery Center makes the perfect gift for those who like to be in and around nature —and learn
