St Petersburg, FL Overview

Ideally located in the very heart of the Tampa Bay regional market, Florida’s fourth largest city boasts more than 230 miles of pristine shoreline.  Surrounded by water on three sides, St. Petersburg looks to Tampa Bay to the east and south and the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico to the west.  As the epitome of Florida style and grace, the town features meticulous landscaping, streets lined with palm trees, Mediterranean architecture, charming brick streets along downtown, and tropical white-sand beaches.


A favored destination for tourism and visitors, the city also offers residents an exceptionally well-developed parks and recreation department.  More than 130 lush parks combine with good schools, a major university, historic neighborhoods, and a thriving economy to make St. Petersburg a jewel in the crown of the Tampa Bay region. Celebrations abound in hundreds of events set in waterfront parks or venues like the city’s landmark Pier, the vintage coliseum, Bayfront Center, and Mahaffey Theater.  World-class museums include Salvador Dali Museum, while charming restaurants and shops line the retail districts.  The arts are especially well supported in St. Petersburg in live performance and visual art centers.


The home selection throughout Greater St. Petersburg is exceptionally diverse and attractive. In downtown St. Petersburg, newcomers will find luxurious waterfront living in handsome condominiums, many with spectacular views.  Well-kept older homes in long-established neighborhoods contrast with new custom-built estates in stunning enclaves. Business growth within the Carillon and Gateway area has driven more residential development in the form of luxury apartments and executive homes in prestigious communities.  Giant trees shade the luxurious older homes in the west central “Jungle” area, popular for its close proximity to beaches and quality shopping.  The southern section features stable areas like Bahama Shores and Pinellas Point, distinguished by “pink” streets, large lots, and scenic vistas.  New residents will always be able to find their dream home in the growing metropolis of St. Petersburg.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
