Things to Do in Historic Old Northeast

View Map

The historic Old Northeast district abuts downtown, and claims nearly 3,000 historic buildings within its boundaries. It also has a pleasant shopping district, restaurants and a number of city landmarks. Housing is a mix of Mediterranean and bungalow styles in a lushly green setting rife with jacarandas, pines, palms, and magnolias.

Brick streets and granite curbs add to the charm of the area, which also includes North Shore Park to the east, with its swimming, biking, walking, and playing areas as well as a pretty white sand beach. The area also borders Coffee Pot Bay, famous for its resident manatees. The Gizella Kopsick Palm Arboretum is another bucolic addition to the community. The Palladium Theater presents eclectic performances in a former church also in the area. The St. Petersburg transit system provides bus service through the neighborhood, and the busy urban nightlife of downtown is just minutes away.
