St. Petersburg, Fla., is already one of the country's most prominent beach destinations and boasts a terrific year-round climate, but there's more than meets the eye when talking about the sprawling metropolitan area. Those looking for a fresh start in this beautiful part of the U.S. would do well to check out the neighborhood of Disston Heights. Located just outside of the downtown St. Pete area, renting a Disston Heights apartment will put new residents into the heart of the growing community that's bursting with the comforts of modern life and a unique culture that many love to call their own. Let's explore some of the benefits of living in the Tampa Bay-St.Petersburg area.
Away from the idyllic streetcars of St. Petersburg and the hustle and bustle of the downtown center, those living in a Disston Heights apartment can enjoy the many amenities of suburban life, such as a bevy of public parks. Two highlights that are just outside the neighborhoods are Azalea Park and Seminole Park. Azalea Park offers a large recreational center, playgrounds, ball fields and many other outdoor activities. Seminole Park features a large playground, a wilderness area, walking trails and plenty of beautiful scenery.
There's a reason why St. Petersburg is one of the top tropical destinations in the U.S.! The area is teeming with white sands, ocean waves and fun in the sun, and there are many areas just west of a Disston Heights apartment that are ideal for beach activities. The always popular St. Pete Beach is a hotspot year-round, while other treasures like Ft. DeSoto Beach and Maximo Beach & Park have enthralled visitors for generations. Beach goers can enjoy a whole day's worth of surfing, parasailing, boogie boarding or simply enjoying time to kick back, sunbathe and take in the beautiful scenery.
