Petersburg is populated by a little less then 3,000 full-time residents. That number almost doubles in the summer when the cannery is in full gear and the small cruise ships sail through town. This town is off the beaten path from the major ports of call; there are no ports or docks to accommodate the larger cruise ships. As a result there are very few tourist shops and the local culture can be seen throughout the town all year round. Everyone in Petersburg is very friendly and will stop and talk for any length of time. The sense of small town community is very strong here. Each resident looks after the other and helps raise the children collectively. Truly a great place to raise a family and call home!
