Greater St. Petersburg & Beach Communities
Despite accommodating tourists virtually year-round, the coastal, Gulf of Mexico cities and towns of St. Petersburg’s Pinellas County hold discrete communities proud to call paradise home.
- St. Pete Beach: Pinellas County’s largest beach city, St. Pete Beach is famously tourist-driven and pricey but maintains an unpretentious, laid-back attitude and constantly has a great entertainment lineup.
- Tierra Verde: The partially manmade island of Tierra Verde, formerly barren but becoming increasingly lush, holds an unincorporated community of notoriously affluent residents.
- Madeira Beach: Originally a quaint fishing town, Madeira Beach has developed into a city of expensive homes and condos that still revolves around the commercial grouper fishing industry. But also tourism—the population easily triples on weekends.
- Treasure Island: A city comprising five distinct communities, Treasure Island embodies tranquility and beauty while having a 9-hole golf course, a downtown area and an active live entertainment scene.
- Redington Beaches: “The Redingtons,” a region of upscale houses, condos and wealthy beach enthusiasts of all ages, consist of three quiet towns: Redington Beach (a residential district of single-family homes), North Redington Beach (known for particularly large homes and the gulf-front Tides Beach Club) and Redington Shores (a friendly, diverse area of tourism and commerce).
- Indian Shores and Indian Rocks Beach: With half of its housing seasonal or recreational, the beautiful, tiny town of Indian Shores faces constant development. The much larger city of Indian Rocks Beach, however, contains many single-family houses, apartments and cottages and harbors a strong sense of community and local pride. Oak-tree-studded Indian Rocks Beach also features multiple parks and a nature preserve.
- Gulfport: A diverse city rich in waterside views, amenities and a sense of community, Gulfport showcases large, oak-covered properties and quaint bungalows alongside its parks, library, theater and casino.
- South Pasadena: A dense one-square-mile cluster of high-rise condos, South Pasadena houses mostly retirees (the median age is 70.6) and offers beautiful views with the utmost in convenience—virtually all services are within walking distance.
- The Belleairs: Quiet, beachside and completely residential, the two Belleair communities (the larger city of Belleair Beach and the tiny, very expensive Belleair Shore) together contain approximately 1,800 residents and absolutely no commerce, save for one motel.
- Northwest St. Petersburg: Northwest of St. Petersburg are the unincorporated West and East Lealman (approximately 5 square miles), the tiny town of Kenneth City (less than 1 square mile), the city of Pinellas Park (15 square miles) and the city of Seminole (3 square miles).
- Pinellas Park: Once a global floral supplier, Pinellas Park today holds much of Tampa Bay-area industry as well as having everything from undeveloped land to new businesses and youth sports complexes to million-dollar homes. Pinellas Park hosts many popular community festivals and events such as “Festival in the Park” in March.
- Seminole: Though Seminole technically covers a scant 3 square miles, many residents of surrounding areas claim it as well, making it larger than it may seem. A quiet, close-knit, family-friendly suburban community, Seminole has good schools, strongly supported youth athletics, shopping, parks and Lake Seminole. Nearly half of the Seminole population is over age 65.
