Indian Rocks Beach
A quiet community of approximately 4,000, Indian Rocks Beach’s 2.7 miles of beachfront are popular with all ages and between its array of motels and condominiums there are more than 20 convenient beach access points. The city seeks to expand its range of commercial and office uses and revitalize its Business District Triangle. Public investments include new floating docks to encourage visiting boaters, a redesign of the city’s entranceway, and the expansion of its historical museum.
The Town of Indian Shores boasts 2.5 miles of white-sandy beaches, breathtaking evening sunsets, and lots of seasonal residents. The town is the proud home of Florida Trend magazine’s “Golden Spoon” award-winning Salt Rock Grill, along with many other local, independent businesses, from coffee shops and retailers to watering holes.
Named the #9 Beach in the U.S. by Tripadvisor in 2021, Madeira Beach is home to John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk, a fishing village converted into a shopping area that has undergone significant redevelopment.
A town center area aims to attract new hotels, restaurants, retail and residential projects through codes that promote mixed-use development, the revitalization of the marina, and a redesign of the downtown corridor.
North Redington Beach
The Town of North Redington Beach lies in the heart of the Pinellas County beach communities, halfway between the northern and southern tips of the barrier islands. It is predominately a town of single family, waterfront homes, but also offers a wide variety of commercial and recreational opportunities for residents and visitors alike.
Primarily a waterfront residential community, Redington Beach’s one square-mile features four town parks, five public beach accesses, a causeway with benches for relaxing and fishing, and a community recreation area with basketball courts and a large children’s playground.
The Town of Redington Shores beckons visitors and residents to enjoy its wide white sandy beaches, abundant fishing, boating activities, its pleasant parks and spectacular natural wildlife and beauty.
St. Pete Beach
With beautiful pristine beaches, an amazing selection of locally owned restaurants and shops, and award-winning accommodations for guests, St. Pete Beach is a favorite amongst both visitors and locals. The city’s Redevelopment District occupies 284 acres and includes two major areas: Gulf Boulevard and the Downtown District. The $60 million Bayway Bridge Replacement replaced a two-lane bridge with a four-lane, fixed-span, high level structure with bike and walking paths to will encourage tourism and beach business.
Treasure Island is a friendly, laid-back beach community that offers visitors and residents a timeless Florida experience, featuring modern amenities with retro vibes. With a commitment to inclusivity, the City has attracted businesses and resorts that truly offer something for everyone. Clean beaches, sea turtle nesting, sand sculpture competitions, and fun dining options draw people in to stay and play. The City’s unique point of difference is the well-preserved classic Floridian aesthetic that has vanished from many of the larger beach communities that have developed in recent years. The stunning beach, welcoming residents and business owners, resorts, and amenities all drive people to return year-after-year and even settle in Treasure Island.
