The PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship

This spring, from March 8th – 11th, the PGA Tour will be paying a visit to the Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor, Florida.  Just a short drive for visitors who have booked Treasure Island hotel deals, this FedEx Cup competition boasts an immaculate backdrop, 144 professional golfers, and has many additional benefits to local charities.  Visit the PGA website for more information on tickets, times, and accompanying events.


The Dunedin Highland Games

Just up the coast from the premiere Treasure Island beach resort is Dunedin – a small Florida community rich in Scottish heritage.  Each spring, this year on April 7th, the town plays host to their very own Highland Games.  The event pits competitors against each other in traditional Scottish games including sheep herding!  If the competition isn’t enough to draw you up to Dunedin, the traditional music, costume, food, and atmosphere should be!


The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

From March 9th – 11th this year, head over to St. Petersburg to witness the most adrenalin fueled time of the year.  Over this weekend, downtown St. Petersburg is turned into an IndyCar racetrack complete with 14 turns and speeds over 170 mph.  The race itself is something to behold, but the games and surrounding activities provide guaranteed fun for the whole family.
