St. Petersburg

"The Sunshine City"

Current Issue


Recently, the New York Times named St. Petersburg as one of the “52 must see places in the world”. Yes, the world!


Touting its museums and rich cultural scene, a thriving craft beer industry, and its ranking as one of America’s Top 10 most beautiful cities, St.Petersburg’s a must-see stop on any traveler’s Tampa Bay itinerary. Just a half hour from Tampa or Clearwater, St. Petersburg – once known as a retirement destination – was just ranked  as Florida’s No.1 spot for relocation among millennials.


As the gateway to the I-4 high-tech corridor, St. Petersburg can hang its hat as a great spot for new business and tech start-ups, a thriving arts climate, one of North America’s largest and most beautiful downtown waterfronts and a climate that holds a world record for the most consecutive days of sunshine!


The city hops after dark. A thriving craft beer industry and a 24/7 downtown attracts the region’s largest clusters of bars and entertainment spots in the Tampa Bay area. Along Beach Drive, stylish open air cafes line a European-style promenade overlooking a ribbon of green city parks and the sparkling waters of Tampa Bay. In between, discover great shopping at Sundial or throughout downtown, or the eclectic homegrown businesses in the Grand Central District.


Ranked as America’s No.1 Arts Destination, and its No.1 crafts town, the Sunshine City is home to a surprising number of museums, including the world famous Dali Museum, Dale Chihuly’s only permanent collection of his glass art, and an acclaimed Museum of Fine Arts. Add to that a rich performing arts scene, including the home of the Florida Orchestra, and the cultural lover will be captivated by what’s on exhibit or on stage. Don’t miss a trip to downtown St. Petersburg, and discover for yourself the warm hospitality that has made the Sunshine City famous.
