Follow This Adventure - Meet Codie Gentry

In celebration of Travel and Tourism Week, please meet Meet Codie Gentry, Founder and Head Magic Maker of Follow This Adventure (FTA). Codie's vision began when she was working a 9-5 city job for the local newspaper. After a few weeks of gloomy cafeteria lunches and naps in random closets, she decided to start exploring. 

The passion to explore and share adventures quickly turned into a profession that led down paths like guiding whale watching tours in Alaska, curating one-of-a-kind events in the city, itinerary writing and everything in between. The constant through it all? A D V E N T U R E!

"FTA was created to be the missing link - to be the tool that connects people of all demographics to new adventures. Whether that’s on a budget or with limited mobility, solo or with the whole family — in their own backyard or across the continent." -Codie Gentry

Before settling in St. Pete, Codie traveled all around Florida in hopes of landing in a city that felt like home. The week she happened to visit, was during the first SHINE Mural Festival and the city was alive and full of this artistic energy! The people were enthusiastic, friendly and welcoming, making St. Pete the perfect place to live and eventually, start a new business.

Follow This Adventure curates custom-made, personalized itineraries just for you. Whether you’re exploring a new city, having a girls night out or taking a cross-country, family vacation, FTA'S personalized itineraries make adventuring easy!

Follow This Adventure has been operating in St. Pete since last June and Codie is about to complete her last week at The St. Pete Greenhouse Entrepreneurial Academy. She highly recommends the program to anyone interested in entrepreneurship, as she has learned so much about owning her own business during her time in the cohort. 

Let FTA take the hassle out of planning so that you can be fully present on your next adventure.

The St. Pete Chamber welcomes Codie and Follow This Adventure to the St. Pete Chamber family!

Codie's Love Letter to St. Pete:

"I love the community and the arts here -- from the paint on the walls to the works of Dali.

I love that you can watch the sun rise over the bay and the sun set over the gulf.

I love that each block of Central has its own vibe and there's always something to do.

I love that it's a little city with big city dreams.

I love that everywhere is dog friendly and most people know your dog by name (and not you, ha!).

I love that the sun shines here every day and that we have acres upon acres of waterfront, green spaces.

I love the manatees of Coffee Pot Bayou and the dolphins that swim along the walls of the Vinoy.

I love our historical buildings and all of the shiny new additions. 

But mostly, I love showing people how special this place is and then they "get it" too."
