St. Petersburg (often shortened to St. Pete) is a city in Pinellas County, Florida, United States long known as a vacation destination for both American and foreign tourists. The city is located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to mainland Florida to the north; with the city of Tampa to the east by causeways and bridges across Tampa Bay.
With a purported average of some 360 days of sunshine each year, it is nicknamed "The Sunshine City." For that reason, the city has long been a popular retirement destination, especially for those in the United States from colder Northern climates. This reputation earned the city the derisive nickname of "God's waiting room". However, in recent years the population has shifted in a more youthful direction.
St. Petersburg is represented by teams in three major professional sports. MLB’s The Tampa Bay Rays plays in St. Petersburg proper, while the other two play across the bay in Tampa.
With a stunning, beachfront downtown, plentiful Gulf of Mexico seafood and pan-Latin culinary influences, St. Petersburg restaurants have a unique "Floribbean" appeal. Even though St. Petersburg is an artistic city with world-class fine art museums, the ideal backdrop for a memorable seafood dinner is the aqua blue beauty of St. Petersburg's Tampa Bay. In addition to Latin, Caribbean and seafood restaurants, St. Petersburg's many excellent Italian restaurants pay aromatic homage to the city's 19th century Italian immigrants.
