St. Petersburg is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation. Home to some of the country’s finest beaches, world-class museums, and an array of entertainment and professional sporting events, the “Burg” is a vibrant city with something for everyone. A burgeoning foodie scene combined with boutiques, bike shops, art galleries, breweries, and coffee houses has attracted visitors and new residents alike. The city’s thriving business, entrepreneurial and arts sectors have sparked its growth and helped propel its economy.

The sunniest city in America, holding the record for 768 consecutive sunny days, is also a big, hip small-town. The St. Petersburg lifestyle, defined by sunshine, diversity and a dynamic arts scene, is enhanced by its location in a zero-income tax state.

Although St. Petersburg’s population is little more than 260,000, this big small town is home to Florida’s largest LGBT Pride celebration. In recent years, more than 200,000 people have attended St. Pete Pride. The city employs a full-time LGBT liaison to the mayor’s office and police department, and in 2016 received a perfect score on HRC’s Municipal Quality Index.
