St. Pete is known for its sunny days, laid back living, and vibrant art scene. But what some people don't realize is that it's also home to a pretty solid international airport.

If you find yourself traveling by plane often, and you are also searching for an apartment in St. Pete, then consider checking out apartments near the airport. This will save you tons of time and money over the course of your time in St. Pete. And thankfully for you, there are plenty of great apartments located near the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport.
