St. Petersburg is a sun-drench sanctuary with over 100 distinct neighborhoods. The Bahama Shores neighborhood was the setting for the famed movie “Cocoon” and offers many options for homebuyers in terms of price range, location and home. This idyllic neighborhood is located on the picturesque Tampa Bay waterfront in southern St. Petersburg. It’s a fairly affluent neighborhood with spacious homes, tree-lined streets and a wide range of residents from families and young professionals to retirees. Even if you don’t live directly on the water, homeowners have waterfront access. Residents enjoy fishing and kayaking on a regular basis. The neighborhood has its own waterfront park for fun in the sun, sand and surf.
As soon as you drive into Bahama Shores, you get that “Old Florida” feel. There are canopies of matured towering oak trees and brick-lined streets. The waterfront homes in Bahama Shores offer stunning views of Tampa Bay, tranquil sea breezes and amazing sunsets. The neighborhood also sports a variety of architecture, including beautiful Mediterranean Tudor and mid-century modern.
Just blocks from downtown St. Petersburg, Bahama Shores is the perfect location. Within minutes, residents can enjoy the downtown fine dining, museums, sidewalk cafes, chic boutiques and cultural events. It’s also just a fast 30 minutes from the Tampa International Airport.
Another highly desirable, historic neighborhood in St. Petersburg is Driftwood. This charming neighborhood is teaming with untamed wildlife, unique homes and winding streets lined with wild vegetation and massive oak trees. Driftwood still has vintage homes from the 1930s owned by local artists. It is nestled in southeast St. Petersburg on the Big Bayou. Like Bahama Shores, the neighborhood offers a wide array of homes and prices. However, homes don’t often come on the market for sale. It is also well-known for its close-knit, bohemian population. Driftwood has a tradition for madcap gatherings that include progressive New Year’s Eve parties and its very own Fourth of July parade.
