St. Pete Beach: Home to the Don CeSar

St. Pete Beach is a coastal community located on the Gulf Coast of Florida, about halfway down the state. Famed as a destination for tourists seeking the casual fun of beach culture as well as warmer climes, St. Pete Beach is part of Pinellas County and has about 10,000 permanent inhabitants. It should not be confused with St. Petersburg, a separate city, even though until 1994 the official name of the town was actually St. Petersburg Beach. Locals elected to change the name by ballot that year in order to prevent confusion between the two cities.

The Don CeSar Hotel

One of the premier tourist attractions of St. Pete Beach is the historic hotel structure that goes by the oddly spelled name "Don CeSar. This hotel is a testament to times gone by, as it was first opened during the height of the "Jazz Age, in 1928 to be precise. For decades afterward, the hotel was a hotspot for the rich and powerful who would come here to enjoy fine living along the Gulf Coast.

Unlike many buildings of that era, though, the Don CeSar is not a decrepit shell of itself today. Instead, it is still a vibrant and well-maintained building where the Jazz Age seems to live on. Painted candy pink and several stories tall, it stands out along the St. Pete Beach coastline to this day. Tourists staying in vacation rentals in St. Pete Beach can enter the hotel lobby and have a look around to see for themselves what fine construction looked like in the year before the Great Depression brought the economy crashing down.
