Thanks to our 40+ miles of bicycle trails and our bike share program, St. Pete has also been named one of the top ten cities in the USA for cycling.
St. Pete received a 3-STAR Community Rating by STAR Communities and was nationally recognized for leadership in sustainability. By engaging in the Sustainability Tools for Assessing and Rating Communities program, we have set goals for becoming an even more sustainable St. Pete.
