Why St. Pete Is Hot!


We’ve got a serious case of Pride! St. Pete shines in national and international press mentions, garners national awards for beaches, arts and recreation. It’s one of the reasons we’ve launched St. Pete Life Magazine this month, to showcase the insider scoop on why downtown St. Pete  and surrounding neighborhoods lure hometown, regional and national visitors.

We’re In The Spotlight..And For Good Reasons

Known as the Sunshine City, the stunning waterfront views, thriving arts scene, cultural excellence, international events and progressive culture – plus some seriously good food and craft beer – attract national attention. We’ve got the Firestone Grand Prix, the 7th largest PRIDE celebration in the U.S., the SHINE mural festival, the Dali and two new multi-million dollar museums on the horizon.

For those who live, work and play here, St. Pete envisions a robust community with an eye on the future. Says Mayor Rick Kriseman on the city’s informative website: Our vision is to be a city of opportunity where the sun shines on all who come to live, work, and play. With your help, our neighborhoods, businesses, every individual, will enjoy a new opportunity to be lifted into the light of our St. Petersburg sun.”
