I'm staying at the residence inn at clearwater-st petersburg and would prefer to walk to a restaurant so I can enjoy some cocktails with no worry (and I'd love a local yummy spot if one exists around there with a liquor licence.) Any ideas?

    You will be 1 mile away from Cafe Ponte, which is probably my favorite restaurant in Tampa Bay. Ulmerton is a very busy road, so you may want to take a look at the traffic before making up your mind about walking. There is also a Greek restaurant called Acropolis very close to Cafe Ponte, but I haven't been there in a few years.

      The area that you will be in is not an area to consider walking in after dark, especially while inebriated. Please consider taking a cab which will broaden your area considerably and your safety.

        I second this. Ulmerton + pedestrians = not a good combo. Cafe Ponte is the best you can do in the area. I'd take a cab there and have a drink and an app or two.

        Pinellas County in general is not safe for pedestrians or bicycle riders. I wouldn't want to walk on Ulmerton after dark.
