Moving to St. Petersburg

Lovingly referred to as “St. Pete”, this suburb of Tampa on the west side peninsula of Tampa Bay is widely known for its great beaches and fun water sports activities. Founded in 1888 by John C. Williams and by Peter Demens, the two flipped a coin to decide the name of the city. Demens ended up winning the gamble and chose to name the area after his hometown of St. Petersburg in Russia.

You’re probably wondering about what you can expect from the St. Petersburg population. Incorporated in 1892, when it had only about 300 people living in the area, the city is now home to more than 263,500 people. It is ranked as the fifth-most populous city in Florida and is consistently attracting anywhere from 3,000 to 4,000 new residents year after year.

Covering nearly 138 square miles, St. Petersburg has more than 100 neighborhoods to choose from for those interested in living there. Most people moving to St. Pete do everything they can to live as close to Downtown as possible, which is often compared to a small European city with plenty of great amenities. Other great options include Snell Isle, as well as the historic community of Kenwood.

It’s a difficult task to pick out only two or three fun things to do in St. Petersburg, but atop the list of options is The Dali Museum with its incredible collection of art by Salvador Dali in an innovative glass building. Another great local attraction is the Sunken Gardens, a botanical paradise which has been around for more than 100 years now. From there, a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts will give you a close look at both antique and modern art exhibits from all over the world.

For people with children, the local Pinellas School District is named after the county and hosts primary schools like Pasadena Fundamental Elementary and Bay Vista Fundamental Elementary. The cities two top-rated high schools are St. Petersburg High and Lakewood High. Secondary education programs are also available at the University of South Florida which has a St. Petersburg campus, as well of the Eckerd College of Liberal Arts.

Want to know about St. Petersburg jobs? The city’s largest employer is Raymond James, the investment banking and financial services company which employs more than 4,000 staff members. The city’s healthcare system is another large market in the city including Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, which has over 3,000 medical staff.

Nicknamed “The Sunshine City”, St. Petersburg weather currently holds the Guinness World Record for logging 768 consecutive days of sunshine between 1967 and 1969. Prepare your board shorts and t-shirts for average temperatures that vary slightly between the mid-50s and the low 90s all year round.
