St. Pete's the best but Tampa's got the buzz. Why?

Share on Nextdoor

I'd like to propose a question to readers...what could make St.Pete more progressive to hip metropolitans of Tampa and surrounding areas? What is St.Pete missing? What's working?


Upon meeting most people i can't help but exclaim how much i love St.Pete, and i try to convince them that their lives will be better if they move here...

I have traveled and lived around, but i believe that St.Pete has been the place where i have found my peace and place the most. It's where everything has come together for me, like a little neat package.

I gush about the "potential" and current culture of the area, the opportunity for amazing things to happen, if only it would happen quicker! And if only they asked what i thought before they opened TWO "Ultra Lounges" (which no one seems to quite understand the meaning of)!

I deviate from my point here, but i need to mention that both PUSH "Ultra Lounge" and Vintage "Ultra Lounge" cater to the same damn crowd from Weds- Sun... on off days through the week the "club" might think about offering something different ...(hint hint i have some awesome ideas)...all people really want is GOOD music and to be able to dance without feeling like you're in a meat market.

So why, with all St. Pete has to offer, does Tampa have a hipper crowd of people with cool new businesses, stores and lounges opening?
