It’s always refreshing to leave New York, even for a moment, to force myself to slow down. This time around I mixed some much needed relaxation with neighborhood canvassing in St Petersburgh, Florida. There’s a thriving art scene and booming real estate market. It’s still not too late to take advantage of the many opportunities out here. From vacation homes to investment properties and vacation rentals, St. Pete’s should not be overlooked. After all, who doesn’t love blue skies, water views and stunning sunsets?
