Not as good of a skyline as Tampa's, but not bad at all, IMO. 7.5/10

God I love St Petes!!

The downtown isnt great, but St Petes beach is one of my favourite places on Earth.

If my family have any money to spend on a holiday, we go there - weve been 3 times in the past 7 years now.

Bloody fantastic place. Pity the downtown area isnt too great.

I would have to agree with The Boy David. I absolutely love St. Pete, and especially St. Pete Beach. This is a city to keep your eye on in the future, as they have some phenomenal plans on the board with regard to both future residential and office buildings in the central core.

A 5.5/10. For now...

Some interesting buildings and a lot of passable skyscrapers. Not compacted skyline in a great nature landscape.

A "5/10" for St. Petersburg. A city like this I think it has a lot of oppurtunities, so come on!

St. Petersburg and Tampa are both going through a large growth stage, so I expect we'll see a lot out of them. St. Petersburg' skyline right now is small, but great. They've even got their own signature tower. I give it a 7/10.

Considering they compete with Tampa for skyline rights, I'll give it a 8/10
