    April marks the 4th annual SunLit Festival, a spring celebration of literature in the Sunshine State, and Preserve the 'Burg (PTB), along with our tour partner Keep St. Pete Lit, are excited to offer this special tour as part of the festival! The tour will be a fun tweak to our traditional walking tour - a historic tour with a literary twist! At our tour stops around Mirror Lake and on Lang's Bungalow Court, tour goers will both learn a bit about our city's rich history from our tour guide and gain inspiration from a local writer offering a short reading from their work. It makes for a different and great tour experience! For more info on other Sunlit Festival events, go to: sunlitfestival.org

    Looking for something different & fun to do on a Saturday afternoon - then Join PTB for a stroll in the "suburbs" of funky and artsy Gulfport! The tour will look at this small town on Boca Ceiga Bay and its collection of historic commercial and residential structures.

    Over the decades, dreams were typically much bigger than reality for the small town of Gulfport, starting when it was known as Disston city, named for Hamilton Disston. Disston became the country's largest landowner after bailing out Florida by purchasing four million acres from the state for one million dollars in 1881. Gulfport was also the home of Alvah Roebuck who partnered with Richard Sears to create the famous store named after them. A Sears "kit" home will be seen on the tour as well as other Roebuck homes.

    Come a bit early and take a peak inside at the Gulfport Historical Museum where the tour starts or stay a bit after the tour and tryout some of Gulfport's fun "watering holes!"

    Reservations recommended as tour size is limited.

    Join Preserve the 'Burg for the first program in our 2018 program series, “Unseen St. Pete: Hidden Faces and Unknown Places." While you may not think of the Gulf of Mexico as an unknown place its importance to our community and its historical context are largely an unknown. There is nobody better than Jack Davis to remove the unknown and to shed light on the role the Gulf has played in the American narrative. Davis, always entertaining, is a University of Florida professor in history and sustainability studies. His most recent and award winning book is The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea. You can read up about Davis and his book in this Tampa Bay Times story!

    The bicycle offers a great way to see more of the 'Burg than one typically can take in with a walking tour. We are confident you will enjoy this bicycle tour that will be a fun, leisurely ride with numerous stops taking a closer look at some of the 'Burg's special  neighborhoods & buildings. Riders will get a chance to experience & learn about several of the city's historic districts, including the Northshore and Historic Uptown National Register historic districts, and some of the city's  newly designated local landmark districts within the Historic Old Northeast.

    This tour will start at 4 pm to avoid the heat earlier in the day. We suggest you bring along a water bottle and a few dollars so you can purchase an ice cream cone at a stop along the route!
