St Petersburg is a very laid back city, it has many attractions and places to visit; It has several access points to the sea and beaches rated best in the country! The downtown area is specially attractive with both old and modern buildings with a beautiful bay walk area including the Marina. Among the places to visit there is the Tropicana Field where the Rays play, the sports fans can also visit the Al Lang stadium, home to the Rowdies our soccer team. If you are looking for places to eat, there is a plethora of restaurants and bistros to satisfy the most sophisticated of palates. St Pete, like the locals call it, is a safe city, suitable for raising children or just enjoy life to the fullest!
St. Petersburg is so up and coming! Downtown is full of fresh art, organic or local cafes and coffee shops, and so any breweries. Driving down Central Avenue is like being transported to a small, hipster environment like Portland. Not only that but the beaches are all so gorgeous and close by. You could have an amazing morning downtown at the markets and enjoy some fresh locally sourced coffee and then hit the beach not even ten minutes away! There are so many activities to do in St. Pete with TWO aquariums not even 20 minutes away (Clearwater and Florida Aquarium), multiple museums and beaches.
It is such a privelage to live here, and growing up watching it blossom. I can't wait to see what else St. Pete will bring!
