Driftwood

Teeming with untamed wildlife and quirky charm, the tiny Driftwood neighborhood hides unique homes and narrow, winding streets within a dense growth of abundant oak trees and wild vegetation. Historic, beautiful and whimsical, Driftwood is home to night herons as well as to artists, professors and other independent-minded folk, many of whom live in houses designed by a local artist during the 1930s (which rarely go on the open market). Located in southeast St. Petersburg on the Big Bayou, Driftwood inhabitants embrace its natural beauty and close-knit, though individualistic and bohemian, population.
