When you consider wiggling your toes in the powdery sand beaches of St. Petersburg, Florida who can resist thinking about relocating?

That’s why Cindy Dobyn’s parents piled four kids into a Buick Electra and headed south from chilly Chicago to seek fortune in Treasure Island, hoping it would be a lifestyle all would enjoy. Warm and friendly St. Petersburg turned out to be the best place to find a new career, quality of life and raise children.

If you are considering making St. Petersburg your new home, this book provides all the vital information you need to settle in comfortably and quickly. Join a quarter of a million people who currently enjoy year round sunshine, waterfront housing, abundant wildlife and outdoor activities, while pursuing careers or retirement in what they affectionately call, “The Burg.”

Cindy founded AboveWater Public Relations and Marketing, LLC in Naples, Florida after a whirlwind career in the hospitality industry. The marketing firm has grown to serve clients nationwide from offices in Naples, New Smyrna Beach, and Tampa.

One snowy New Year’s Eve, she and her husband Mike vowed to return to Florida. That was more than a decade ago, when both found jobs at hotels in Southwest Florida and two years later, opened AboveWater to essentially keep their own heads above water. The marketing firm has grown to serve clients nationwide from offices in Naples, New Smyrna Beach, and Tampa.

Cindy happily flies to northern cities to meet with news media and clients, but she would never want to live there, now that she calls St. Petersburg home again.
