For over 100 years, Pinellas County has been a wonderful place to raise a family. The great climate, nationally-ranked high schools, and manufacturing-based economy make Pinellas County a very appealing place to live. Pinellas County is both the most densely populated county in the state of Florida and the smallest county in the state.
Pinellas County is home to two-thirds of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater metropolitan area. St. Petersburg is the largest city in Pinellas County, Florida. According to StPete.org, the “Sunshine City” is home to over 260,000 residents. There are plenty of family activities in the sunny city, as the Tampa Bay Rays and the Salvador Dali Museum call St. Petersburg home.
St. Pete’s neighboring city, Clearwater is home to over three miles of beaches. The Gulf Coast city was formerly known as Clear Water Harbor up until the early 1900s. According to DataUSA, Clearwater has a population of over 110,000 people. During the winter months, this population greatly increases due to snowbirds that migrate from more northern states.

Hillsborough County covers over 1000 miles and is home to over 1 million people. As it contains Tampa, Hillsborough is the home of several sports teams, the oldest brewery in Florida, and the (alleged) birthplace of the “Cuban” sandwich. The intense heat of Hillsborough County probably influenced the invention of the air conditioner, which was invented in part by John Gorrie of Tampa in 1852.
Pasco County, Florida is adjacent to Pinellas County and is home to over 450,000 people. It has a reputation as a swing county in many presidential elections, though its population continues to grow and diversify.
One of the hotspots of Pasco County, Florida is Port Richey. In the early 1920s, Port Richey was on its way to becoming the “new Hollywood.” However, the actors hair and makeup was unable to withstand the Florida humidity. Although movies were still being made in Hollywood, celebrities continued to buy up property along the blue waters of the Pithlachascotee River.
Along with celebrities comes high value assets and marriages that are known for coming to an end just as quick as they came to fruition. If you are in a situation where you want to protect your assets from a potential divorce, you are going to want a prenuptial agreement.
