This is why St. Pete's beaches are better than Miami
I brought the rain from Miami, but as you can see from this photo, the sun is finally out!
Which brings me to the beaches. I'm not a huge fan of TripAdvisor but it did name St. Pete Beach as the best beach in America (according to Reader's Choice Awards... I would never trust the readers of TripAdvisor, BUT, this is a huge statement nabbing the number one slot rather than, like four or five).
The sand is fine and powdery white, and the water has low waves with an emerald green. It almost feels like the Caribbean. Loving the beaches, especially because it's not completely overrun with high-rise buildings, nor is it brimming with tourists. Best of all? It's CLEAN. It's definitely better than Miami. C'est la vie!
