Living in St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg is known for its sunny skies and a combination of big-city amenities and small-town charm. With 361 days of sunshine per year, it’s a place that always feels like you’re on vacation and it’s a very popular city for tourism.
Florida’s fifth-largest city is also home to numerous Fortune 500 companies. Although you might not always notice them tucked among the palm trees, there are multi-million dollar businesses and homes scattered throughout St. Pete.
However, the area also has plenty of middle-class multifamily housing, including apartments and condominiums. The median home value is about $182,000, which is slightly lower than the national average. St. Petersburg schools get high rankings and there are plenty of places to work in St. Pete, along with nearby Largo, Clearwater, and Tampa.
Driving in St. Petersburg
St. Petersburg is a beautiful place to take an oceanside drive, but it also has heavy traffic. The restaurant and entertainment zone gets busy on weekend nights. Daily commuter traffic makes St. Petersburg crowded during rush hour.
Because the city sits at the southern tip of a peninsula, there are a limited number of routes toward the rest of Florida. You can go north or south along the I-275/Sunshine Skyway Bridge/Howard Frankland Bridge, or across either Highway 60 or Highway 92. You can also head north up Highway 19 toward Clearwater or take 699 to see a long stretch of beach and sea along Florida’s far west coast.
Here are some of St. Petersburg’s most dangerous intersections:
- Tyrone Boulevard at 66th Street North, near St. Petersburg Mall
- 1st Avenue North at 28th Street North
- 1st Avenue at U.S. 19
- 34th Street at 22nd Avenue
