and auto parking or a longer commute to the Gulf. As I recall
from years ago, there are few live-a-board slips and long waiting lists. Dunedin was very nice but wait was years. You might have to go north to Tarpon Springs or further to find something.
I can name several marinas off the top of my head
that are located on the St Pete side of the ICW
including the St Pete Municipal Marina, Harborage Marina, Pasadena Marina, Oneil's Marina, Gulfport Municipal Marina and Loggerhead Marina. All of these are close to I 275 which drops you on Ulmerton just a couple of miles from the airport. This actually is a fast, easy drive.
