The two RV Gypsies enjoyed a Segway tour

The two RV Gypsies parked in a parking lot off of Baywalk and it was only $4 for the entire day. Then, the two RV Gypsies went on their sixth (6th) different Segway tour and this time it was in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was like two hours of being a kid again because besides the tour, they had a bit of time to just do their own thing on the Segway! They discovered how beautiful downtown St. Petersburg is, as they rode the Segways through some of St. Pete's most popular destinations with an experienced, fun, delightful guide named Tom. Tour stops included The Pier, The Salvador Dali museum, many local parks, trails, and more. The scenery was beautiful and relaxing. This really is a must do while in St. Petersburg. Thank you, Tom.
After the tour, they walked around the Waterfront Arts District on their own.

Below: From the Mahaffey Theater, Lee took a few photos of The Salvador Dali Museum; an art museum dedicated to the work of Salvador Dali. It houses the largest collection of Dali works outside of Europe. It is located on the downtown St. Petersburg waterfront by 5th Avenue Southeast, Bay Shore Drive, and Dan Wheldon Way. On April 18, 2012, the AIA's Florida Chapter placed the building on its list of Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places. The Dali Museum is listed as one of the top ten buildings to see in your lifetime

History book clipartThe Original museum was in Cleveland, Ohio, then it moved to Beachwood, Ohio, and on March 7, 1982, the museum opened in a marine warehouse in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. In mid-2008, a new location for the Dali museum was announced. It was built on the downtown waterfront next to the Mahaffey Theater and opened on January 11, 2011.

Reportedly costing over $30 million, this structure features a large glass entryway and skylight made of 1.5 inch thick glass. Referred to as the Enigma, the glass entry is 75 feet tall and encompasses a spiral staircase. The remaining walls are composed of 18-inch thick concrete, designed to protect the collection from hurricanes. The museum is a member of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM) and of the North American Reciprocal Museums program.

Karen enjoyed the Segway ride on the grounds by the Mahaffey Theater.

The two RV Gypsies ate at Fresco's Waterfront Bistro, and sat outside with a great view of the sailboats. The food was very good.
