Orlando passes St. Petersburg to become state's 4th largest city

Our beautiful sunshine state contains many well known cities.
According to the Census Bureau, Orlando now has more people than St. Petersburg, making it Florida's fourth largest city.
Due to Orlando not being surrounded by water it allows it to have more room for expansion compared to St. Pete.
The Census Bureau says Orlando has over 255,000 residents, compared to St. Petersburg's 249,00. 
Orlando's number is larger due to a higher birthrate than St. Petersburg. Also, St. Petersburg's residents are also older on average, meaning the city has a higher death rate.
The state's most populous city is Jacksonville, followed by Miami and Tampa.
