Since the campus is in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg, there are many high class restaurants to dine out to. Some of my most joyful times with my roommate was going to get gelato down the street, its only a 5 min walk; any restaurant can be from a 5-15 min walk. But there's at least three gelato places down that street (Bayshore Street) and I think from that, shows the kind of atmosphere St. Pete is trying to show case. One thing I don't like how there's not many fast food restaurants near by, and it makes sense because there shouldn't be fast food chains in a down town. But nearby campus is a Subway, Chinese restaurant, 5 Guys, pizza places. And everyone on campus likes to go to this small restaurant on the corner of 3rd Street I believe, they have the best burgers in town for sure! But if you want to get actual fast food food, you would have to have a car because its not a quick walk.
