Just in time for the Barbie movie release on July 21, 2023, St Pete/Clearwater have put together the ultimate Barbiecore Florida vacation – in every shade of pink you can imagine. So put on your rose-colored glasses and head to St. Pete/Clearwater!

Girls Trip to St Pete/Clearwater

Stay Pink

If you could ask Barbie for her personal recs, she'd most certainly advise you to "stay pink." And, oh, what choices St Pete/Clearwater have for you.

Because you can't stay at Barbie's Dreamhouse, there's the perfectly pink Don CeSar on award-winning St. Pete Beach. Known as "The Pink Palace," this luxury resort is the ultimate headquarters for your Barbie-themed adventure. Hang with your BFFs by the pool with a fruity drink in hand, indulge in a Bali Breeze mani-pedi at Spa Oceana or perfect your Malibu Barbie tan on one of America's best beaches.

Is your heart calling you to stay at gorgeous Clearwater Beach? Check into the seashell-pink Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach, and be sure to hit up the town with your girls at the nightly Sunsets at Pier 60 celebration.

If downtown living is more your style, the historic Vinoy Resort & Golf Club is the pink place to be. This famously stylish hotel has graced the St. Pete waterfront since 1925. (Its historic charm and perfect pinkness led Conde Nast Traveler to name the Vinoy a top Barbicore stay recently.) It's a quick stroll to the St. Pete Pier where, in true Barbie fashion, you'll want to experience everything: Hop on a sightseeing cruise, go fishing, explore a natural science center, or find a waterfront restaurant.

Start Your Day With A Pink Sunrise

Barbie doesn't waste a minute of her vacation and neither should you. Sunrise along St. Pete's downtown waterfront is magical (and totally worth losing a little beauty sleep for)!

Start your day with some yoga or meditation, or just relax on a park bench and watch the sun come up over Tampa Bay. Top sunrise spots include North Shore Park, Flora Wylie Park and Vinoy Park.

Stroll In A Beautiful Pink Garden

When Barbie needs a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, she turns to nature. You'll be tickled pink to learn that St. Pete/Clearwater has two lovely botanical gardens you can visit. In St. Pete, 100-year-old Sunken Gardens is a wonderland of beautiful blooms and rare trees, as well as flamingos, macaws and parrots.

Plan a Beach Picnic To Watch the Pink Sunset

Grab your girls and DIY your own fabulous beach picnic (stop in at Mazzaro's or DeCosmo Italian Market to gather tasty supplies). Or, if you'd rather have someone else create the scene, companies like The Picnic Boys and Enchanted Picnics can help. Once you've got the details settled, it's time to relax and watch nature's show with all your friends.
