If you love heat, humidity, bugs and 4-6 months of fear every year (hurricane season). If not, it’s not for you and it’s getting VERY crowded – too many people to be able to enjoy anything any more… sad to see this area Californicated.

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.

The city may be beautiful, but be prepared for hot weather year around, rain, humidity, and sometimes hurricanes. The beaches are the best part, though, and that is why many people move to the area. However, be prepared to deal with all types of weather on a daily basis.

Saint Petersburg is densely populated, covered in murals, and bustling with life, culture, and great food from all over the world. I would highly recommend living here, although there is a higher cost of living and a faster pace of life than one would expect from a Florida town. You should also know about the dangers of hurricane season and expect a longer, hotter summer than some people are used to.
