St. Pete is a beautiful small city that is still growing into itself. The area’s pre and post-pandemic housing boom has greatly surpassed its growth of amenities. St. Pete has a fantastic art district and a wonderful selection of museums and galleries, but is nearly void of a musical atmosphere. The restaurant culture averages a B rating and lacks imagination and diversity when it comes to national cuisines.

St Petersburg has a diverse and welcoming atmosphere. The food is unique and offers variety for any cuisine you would like to try. There are dog parks and dog-friendly bars. I enjoy the convenience of the city to the beach and the tropical weather. Hurricanes are the only negative aspect of Florida.

If someone moves to St. Petersburg, then it is important to understand its layout, and which characteristics are most important to them. For instance, St. Petersburg includes a booming downtown district that allows for a more urban lifestyle, but also the Gulf beaches for those who are more interested in a laid back lifestyle. The great thing is that wherever one decides to live, they are never more than a 20-25 minute drive from each other, and only between 15-45 minutes from the greater city of Tampa on the other side of Tampa Bay. St. Petersburg has grown tremendously in the past decade, and most would agree for the better. It offers a lot of diversity, and is a great place to raise a family as well.
