Shore Acres Homes & Condos
Shore Acres lies in St. Petersburg’s lovely northeast, bordered by the Tanglewood, Placido Bayou, Eden Isles, and Venetian Isles neighborhoods. Bayou Grande forms its northern waterfront and the Smacks Bayou canal network its western and southern ones, with the open waters of Tampa Bay flanking Shore Acres’s southeastern riviera.
A peaceful, tucked-away, water-strung neighborhood, Shore Acres nonetheless puts all the attractions of the Tampa Bay Area at your fingertips. You’re but a stone’s throw from I-275, which will shuttle you northeast over the W. Howard Frankland Bridge into the heart of Tampa or south to Terra Ceia over the jaw-dropping Sunshine Skyway Bridge. You can also directly access South Tampa via U.S. Highway 92, which spans Old Tampa Bay on the Gandy Bridge.
At Shore Acres, you’re perfectly poised to take advantage of St. Petersburg’s diverse charms—from natural spectacles to nightlife. Not far south, you’ve got the fetching vintage architecture of Historic Old Northeast (aka the North Shore Historic District) and the packed-to-the-gills destinations of downtown St. Petersburg, among them the world-famous Dali Museum and a fantastic array of restaurants, bars, and cafes.
Just across Bayou Grande to the north, meanwhile, hikers, boaters, and fishermen alike have the mangrove shores, palmetto glades, and shady hammocks of the Weedon Island Preserve to explore. This marvelous sanctuary is also an amazing showcase of St. Petersburg’s deep history: It includes ancient American Indian mounds as well as an 1,100-year-old dugout canoe unearthed on the preserve and displayed at its Welcome Center.
Fan of the fairway and putting green? Well, good news: Bordering Shore Acres to the northwest is the sprawling Mangrove Bay Golf Course, an 180-acre, 18-hole championship course administered by the City of St. Petersburg.
