A New View
The St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce welcomes you to our vibrant part of the world. While the amenities of our region have long brought visitors from around the globe, in recent years those visitors have begun to make the Tampa Bay area their home. As a result, we’ve seen a substantial transformation, with the face of our community now reflecting a younger demographic whose new ideas and new industry are fueling our economy.
Today, St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area offer great opportunities for people from all walks of life. Whether you are raising children or growing a corporation, our low cost of living, wealth of educational options, top-quality health care, and plenty to see and do make for an attractive lifestyle.
As the largest Chamber in the Tampa Bay region, we work to ensure that lifestyle thrives by dedicating ourselves to activities that strengthen job retention, expand business, develop the economy, and enhance our region’s standing as a premier vacation destination.
Within the pages of this book, you will find the story of St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area, our region’s unique connection to the water, and the reasons that it is such a popular place for millions of annual visitors and an increasingly popular place to call home.
