St. Petersburg, Florida

Florida’s fourth-largest city and the second in importance as a winter resort, occupies a semi-isolated area of 58 square miles on the southern tip of the Pinellas peninsula, a 25-mile projection between Tampa Bay and Boca Ciega Bay. US 19, entering from the North, is its only free trunk highway.

St. Petersburg’s front yard is a series of landscaped parks and driveways paralleling Tampa Bay, a filled-in stretch of two miles embracing the city’s harbor, yacht basin, municipal pier, and major recreational attractions.
