The “Sunshine City” is located on the west coast of Florida, in a vast peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Blessed with sunshine 360 days a year, the city is surrounded by a series of islands connected to one another by bridges.
Along with an extensive waterway system, the city offers 390 kilometres of coasts along Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico: ideal for lazing in the sun and making the most of the local subtropical climate. True to American traditions, St Petersburg offers fantastic options to practise sports in the open air or get inspired by the local sports scene: don’t miss out on a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game! A wealth of exhibitions, shows and festivals also entertain this prime university town throughout the year; no wonder the local motto is “always in season”.
