Why I Live Here

Katie Everlove-Stone with daughter Ellie Stone

I was born and raised in St. Petersburg and continue to live here now. The thing I love most about St. Pete is the fantastic open spaces. Fort DeSoto and the park on Beach Drive in downtown are my favorites. St. Pete also has a ton of outdoor events, like the Saturday morning market, the Mainsail Art Festival and RibFest.

"St. Pete really is my idea of heaven! I feel so lucky to have been able to spend my life in such a great town, and now I get to raise my daughter here too."
