Welcome to St. Petersburg


Coastal community with miles of beaches and world-class dining establishments.
​​​​​​​

St. Petersburg is a city in Pinellas County, nestled on the shores of Florida's Gulf Coast. It is the second-largest city in the Tampa Bay area, with a population of around 270,000. It was established in the 19th century and bought by Peter Demens and John C. Williams in 1988. They flipped a coin to determine the city's name. After Demens' victory, he named it St. Petersburg in honor of St. Petersburg, Russia. 

When it comes to sunshine, St. Petersburg holds the record (768 days in a row), according to the Guinness Book of World Records. That is why it has been nicknamed "The Sunshine City." Lucky residents of St. Petersburg get to enjoy its miles of shimmering beaches, dog-friendly parks and establishments, booming economy, and strong culinary and artistic communities. This walkable community is quite small-business friendly, with plenty of unique shops and diners.
