If you’re searching for the perfect place to snap an Instagram photo, or take a new profile picture, downtown St. Petersburg is the place to be.

The St. Pete Mural Tour showcases 40 different pieces of mural art in a 4-block radius.

From local, national and international artists, each mural features vibrant colors, unique designs and ranges in many different shapes and sizes.

“What’s great about this tour is that it’s so concentrated. Walking four blocks up and back, you’re seeing 40 murals by 30 or so different artists,” said Diane Shelly, mural guide. “You can ask questions and get the back story to each piece of art, which really makes the tour.”

Of course you can walk up to any mural, but proceeds raised from the tours help commission more artists and preserve the outdoor artwork in the Central Arts District.

“St. Pete has attracted a pool of really talented artists. To be able to go outside and see the murals while you walk or drive just lights you up,” said Shelly. “We are so proud to show off their pieces of art.”

Remember, it’s not graffiti, it’s mural art.

Regular tours are scheduled on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., but groups can arrange for special tour times as well.

How much does it cost?

  • $19 for adults
  • $11 for children
  • Free for kids 5 and under

If you’re interested in taking the tour, call 727-821-7391 or email info@floridacraftart.org. Tours can be postponed during July and August due to the heat.
