Fun Facts About Pinellas County

What the heck did people do around here before there were three bridges to take you from Tampa to St. Pete?

Like many of you, Adam and I are not Tampa Bay natives, so we are always learning. I'll see a plant that's native to Florida, have no idea what it's called, and email a friend. I'll go over a bridge and wonder to myself, "Who IS Howard Frankland?" I'll see a social media post about someone getting married and think, "What is a traditional Florida wedding?" 

I recently Googled something about Tampa Bay and wound up discovering the Pinellas County Goverment's "Do You Know These Facts About Pinellas?" page, and then I fell down a rabbit hole of gathering all sorts of trivial information about the area.

I thought it would be fun to share those facts, but I also wanted to take the time to tell you about the county's web page. I normally wouldn't want you to click away from the A Team's page, but whether you're newer to the area or have been here for years, you need to know about this site. For instance, let's say you wanted information regarding hurricanes. Is there a pet-friendly shelter near me? What's my flood zone? What do I do after the storm? You'd click here. What if you wanted to know about the parks and preserves in the area? You'd find that here.

We're hoping you don't need to click on that first link in the near future. 

Of course, if you want more info on buying or selling a home in Pinellas, you'd contact us
