    Live in Palm Harbor and drive down to St Pete beach! Watch where you’re walking, and be careful reaching in to pull weeds. Haven’t seen any venomous snakes, but we do have Fred the Black Snake that lives in the back yard. Ugh. Did I mention I love living in Florida and Pinellas county!

    Red Tide 2021 has put 2018 Red Tide to shame….so sad to watch helplessly.

    Came here after seeing the video of 5 people getting ran over. Yup, that will do.

    I grew up in southern calif and at 26 yrs old moved to Oregon. Now I’m 58 and we’re moving to florida but not sure where. My classmate for years lived in St. Pete and I found out she moved to UT. I asked why she moved…she said it was too hot. Wow…that bad? I have cabin fever in the winter months and I haven’t surf in years unless a make an occasional trip to Southern Calif. Am looking at Tampa/Braden area but also south of JAX area. Good video…love the dog part and hoa….both I can live with. Not a big fan of HOA.

  9. Marta Englehart on October 14, 2021 at 5:54 pm

    Is it smarter to rent or buy in st petes?

  16. Disabled on October 14, 2021 at 6:02 pm

    It’s nice here just traffic sucks lol

  17. Fred Smith on October 14, 2021 at 6:03 pm

    You show number 11 right at the beginning: beach driving is allowed so you can’t escape the invading hordes.

  20. Chris Gentry on October 14, 2021 at 6:06 pm

    Snakes are venemous. Not poisonous.

    Great video! Love florida and all of the wildlife!! Snakes keep rodents away!

  21. Jenny Lee on October 14, 2021 at 6:07 pm

    I love st pete beach. I would live there but it would just take longer for me to get to work. 🙂

  22. Weedle pokemon on October 14, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    job market in st.pete is very bad.

  23. Mocha18 on October 14, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Hi, how are the schools in St. Pete? We’re trying to leave NYC (don’t worry we’re conservatives 😂) and we’re looking at that area along with Sarasota.

  24. LA Designer on October 14, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Sorry, once you have traveled some, Florida doesn’t even rank in the top ten.

  25. Andrew Zapotosky on October 14, 2021 at 6:09 pm

    Love this!

  26. E S on October 14, 2021 at 6:10 pm

    Sounds like this video was made for the people that never touched dirt. Don’t come to Florida if you can’t handle your toes in the sand and some really wonderful welcoming people. If you are friendly and respectful and easy flowing come to Florida, if the stick or corn cob to far up your but just stay where you are and save us all the headache that you will never find a place suitable. Every place is what you make it. 🌞🌞🌞🌞 Florida Rocks, Floridians are the bomb. 💣🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲💯

    Snakes? 😳 maybe the black harmless ones those are the only ones we’ve seen.

  30. 🐀Tinyratt🐀 on October 14, 2021 at 6:17 pm

    Lots of drugs down there.

  31. Gus Molin on October 14, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Don’t mean to burst your bubbLe but I lived all over the USA and I live in SW Florida strictly for work and I hate it, it feels like you are driving in a Flintstones episode, it’s an endless loop of same trees , same scenery, mosquitos and alligators and the drivers are rude as hell, road rage is out of control, I start work at 6:30AM and I leave the house At 4:55AM just to avoid all the assholes on the road and god forbid I leave 10 or 15 minutes later I will have a bunch of animals tailgating me and wanting to run me of the road, I guess even 20 miles per hour over the speed limit is not enough. They want to go 70 or 80 miles per hour on a 55 MPH zone oh! and overpopulation is a problem, a lot of new Yorkers and Puerto Ricans come here because is cheap and they think they can do whatever the hell they want, they are rude and have no respect for anybody or anything. Can’t wait to sell my house and get the hell out of this shit hole. Oh! and by the way the beaches are nothing to brag home about unless you like dirty water then you will be OK. In my opinion this is the most overrated place on earth.

    great video.

  35. dgg400e on October 14, 2021 at 6:26 pm

    Dogs are absolutely NOT permitted on St Pete Beach. The Pass-A-Grille dog beach is little and removed from the main beach. Fort De Soto is a 15-20 minute drive in good traffic from St Pete Beach.

  36. Lodestone3 on October 14, 2021 at 6:27 pm

    Thanks much for the excellent video. I don’t live in St. Pete Beach per se but I am just a short trip to the beach so I’m happy. I wholeheartedly agree with you when it comes to living here in Tampa Bay. I’ve been a resident for 30+ years now and at this point it would take a crow bar to pry me away from this paradise called Florida!

  37. Heather Page on October 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    Lol in 25years I have yet to see a poisonous snake around. They don’t hunt humans.

  38. o.d squad on October 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    What the hell ther is no snakes. So we do have snakes but who’s going to crawl in a tunnel and say hey come get me. It’s not like they chase you or anything like really you barely see snakes. I was letting your pet come with you bad like what. Okay you act like there’s never been a storm in other place so like calm down. So if you want to talk about storms talk about Oklahoma. Okay red Tide 2016 it’s 2021 wake up. What’s so bad about not being fancy like most people aren’t Rich okay. What do you mean $6,000 you mean $3, 000 you’re lying. Sorry isn’t this video tited10 reasons why not to move in St Pete Florida well number 10 tells you a reason why to move in St Pete Florida so like bruh

    Great video. Where is a good place to sing karaoke ? 😂

  40. Emily Walker on October 14, 2021 at 6:28 pm

    I’m lost. Why are you trashing your town? It looks like a nice place. Did I miss something?

  41. - on October 14, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    you forgot to bring me

  42. 0 0 on October 14, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    i grew up there, i left, its over crowded, no respect for locals, and way too diverse for me now.

  43. Jeffrey Willard on October 14, 2021 at 6:30 pm

    Your video convinced me to consider moving there. St. Pete is like the old Florida, which has been destroyed in South Florida with all it high rises.
