    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!
