Tampa-St. Pete-Clearwater Named #7 for Best Summer Travel

Vacationers are attracted by the same factors that make people want to live and work here: it's easy to get here, has reasonable costs, and there's lots to do in our beautiful weather.

The Tampa Bay metro area in Florida was ranked #7 on the Best Summer Travel Destination list, and the highest-ranking area in Florida, by WalletHub.

The study ranked America's top 100 metro areas by:

  • Travel costs and hassles
  • Local costs
  • Weather
  • Attractions
  • Activities
  • Safety

These are many of the same factors that make people choose St. Pete as a place to live and work. Tampa Bay has been named the #5 relocation destination in the country. Innovators who relocate their businesses to St. Petersburg are drawn by:

Easy access in and out of Tampa International Airport, St. Pete Clearwater Airport, and nearby Sarasota/Bradenton airport.

St. Pete's cost of living, which remains competitive with other U.S. cities.

The Sunshine City's climate, which can't be beat.

Attractions and activities like the St. Pete Pier, our thriving arts scene (with dozens of museums and galleries), and our top-rated parks system, plus swimming, boating, fishing, and the overall outdoor living that is St. Pete.

The only thing better than visiting St. Petersburg is living here. As we joke with our visitors, "You call it vacation, we call it Tuesday."
