Introduction to St. Petersburg, Florida

Welcome to St Petersburg, home to some of America's best sandy white beaches, world class golfing, calm crystal blue waters, lots of sunshine, and memorable sunsets. St Petersburg is a vibrant city that caters to all walks of life from the active lifestyle to resort style living to raising a family to young professionals. St Petersburg has so much to offer that there is always something for everyone, no matter who you are. St Petersburg real estate is a good investment because of the limited land space and population growth. Now is the right time to buy that single family house, beach-front condos, waterfront homes, townhomes, investment properties, etc... while prices are down and before the other buyers get back into the market. When all the inventory properties start to level off than prices should bounce back sharply. The weak dollar is also attracting lots of foreign investors to Florida's waterfront real estate market because the prices here are still cheaper than prices in other major waterfront cities across the United States and this is a popular tourist destination. A city with so much to offer also give you a Realtor with so much to offer. Fred Hintenberger is your preferred St Petersburg real estate specialist who has earned major achievements, comes highly recommended, real world experience, well educated, very knowledgeable of the local and current real estate trends. You can't go wrong when selecting a real estate agent who is in the top 1% of real estate agents in the nation. Fred Hintenberger, P.A. and associates will take you beyond full service and exceed your expectations!

St Petersburg achieves a balance between the big city feeling and a quaint small town atmosphere with so much character and charm to offer. St Petersburg has more waterfront properties per square mile than any other city with lots of impressive architectural styles from craftsman style homes to Mediterranean style palatial mansions. I have lived here for over 30 years and have been calling St Petersburg my hometown since 1977. I have done a lot of traveling and have not found a place that I rather call home. I am one of the areas leading Realtors because I believe in my product and I truly believe that St Petersburg property prices are an exceptional value.

The city is commonly referred to by locals as "St Pete"; neighboring St. Pete Beach, Florida formally shortened its name in 1994 after a vote by its residents.The city is located on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to the mainland to the north, connected with the city of Tampa, Florida to the east by causeways and bridges across Tampa Bay, and to Bradenton, Florida in the south by the Sunshine Skyway Bridge (Interstate 275), which traverses the mouth of the bay. It is also served by Interstates 175 and 375, which branch off of 275 into the southern and northern areas of downtown respectively. The Gandy Bridge, opened in 1924, is the first causeway to be built across Tampa Bay, connecting St. Petersburg and Tampa cities without a circuitous 43-mile trip around the Bay through Oldsmar.With a purported average of some 360 days of sunshine each year, it is nicknamed "The Sunshine City." [1] For that reason, the city is a popular tourist, and retirement destination, especially for those in the United States from colder Northern climates particularly New York, Detroit, and Chicago.

Founded in 1876, St. Petersburg is the fourth largest city in Florida with a population of approximately 250,000 people, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates. St. Petersburg is part of the Tampa–St. Petersburg–Clearwater metropolitan statistical area, which is the twentieth largest in the United States and the second largest MSA in the State with a population in excess of approximately 2.7 million people. The city was co-founded by John C. Williams, formerly of Detroit, Michigan, who purchased the land in 1876, and by Peter Demens, who was instrumental in bringing the terminus of a railroad there in 1888. St. Petersburg was incorporated on February 29, 1892, when it had a population of only some 300 people.It was named after Saint Petersburg, Russia, where Peter Demens had spent half of his youth. A local legend says that John C. Williams and Peter Demens flipped a coin to see who would have the honor of naming the city. Peter Demens won and named the city after his birthplace, while John C. Williams named the first hotel after his birthplace, Detroit. The Detroit Hotel still exists downtown, but has been turned into a condominum. The oldest running hotels are the historic Pier Hotel, built in 1921 The Pier Hotel and The Heritage Hotel, built in 1926.The city's first major industry was born in 1899 when Henry W. Hibbs, 1862-1942, a native of Newport, North Carolina, established his wholesale fish business at the end of the railroad pier, which extended out to the shipping channel. Within a year, Hibbs Fish Company was shipping more than a thousand pounds (454 kg) of fish each day.Dredging of a deeper shipping channel from 1906 to 1908 opened St. Petersburg to larger shipping. Further dredging improved the port facilities through the 1910s. By then the city's population had quadrupled to 4,127.In 1914, airplane service across Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg to Tampa and back was initiated, generally considered the first commercial airline. The company name was the "St. Petersburg–Tampa Airboat Line" and the pilot was Tony Jannus, flying a Benoist XIV flying boat. The Tony Jannus Award is presented annually for outstanding achievement in the airline industry. Jannus Landing, a local music/entertainment venue on Central Avenue in Downtown, is named after aviation pioneer Tony Jannus.The city population continued to multiply during the twentieth century. Booming in the 1940's and 50's with the advent of air-conditioning [citation needed] and through the 1970s as the town became a popular retirement destination for Americans from midwestern cities, reaching 238,647 in the 1980 census. By the 1980s, however, the population had levelled off, and has grown by only 10,000 since then, primarily as a result of being "built-out".

St. Petersburg is located on Florida's central Gulf coast, across Tampa Bay from the city of Tampa Bay. St. Petersburg is a past finalist community for the National Civic League's "All-America City Award". Tampa-St. Petersburg also ranked fourteenth on Inc. magazine's list of "The Top 25 Large Cities for Doing Business in America". St. Petersburg is home to two Fortune 1000 companies, and nearby Tampa is home to four more.

Access to higher learning is available in St. Petersburg at Eckerd College, a private liberal arts school and at campuses of University of South Florida, a public university, and St. Petersburg College, a local community college.

St. Petersburg weather can be characterized as a year round tropical climate. July and August are the hottest months of the year with average daily temperatures reaching 90 degrees Fahrenheit. January is the coolest month, with average daily temperatures of 69 degrees Fahrenheit.
