View of St. Petersburg near Grand Central real estate

Grand Central District

Just two miles from the Downtown St. Petersburg area is the Grand Central District. This neighborhood is known as an arts and entertainment hub, with numerous local businesses, restaurants, and art galleries all within the boundaries of the neighborhood. Grand Central District is far more popular with the locals than it is with tourists; a sort of “if you know, you know!” kind of feeling. As a result, the area has so far escaped the big chain stores and sky-high condominiums. With a bright, welcoming atmosphere and unique boutiques, Grand Central District doesn’t have the ambiance of big city life. Nevertheless, the bustling downtown core is only minutes away.
