St. Petersburg has been recognized by Forbes as one of the top cities where people are moving to in United States.
According to an article published last week, Tampa-St. Pete ranks No. 4 on the list ahead of Houston, and bellow Austin, Miami and Dallas-Fort Worth.
"The differential in housing costs between New York and Tampa-St. Petersburg now stands at historic highs, and near peak bubble highs between Los Angeles and Phoenix; the traditional growth states are looking more attractive all the time for people looking to make quick money in an economy with shrinking opportunities elsewhere."
From July 2010 to July 2011, the Tampa Bay area saw an increase of 27,157 people, according to Forbes.
