Welcome to the Greater Tampa Bay Area
Welcome to the Greater Tampa Bay Area, a tropical, yet urban oasis and a place to call home! No matter what your lifestyle, whether you are looking for contemporary, Spanish, Mediterranean, luxury, or waterfront homes and estates, or historic bungalow style properties, Tampa Bay has it all. Tampa Bay communities boast multi-million dollar homes on Davis Islands, Westshore Yacht Club, Corey Isles, New Tampa, South Tampa, Harbour Island, and of course, our prestigious Avila.
Situated in Southern Hillsborough County, the Southshore Area of Tampa Bay consists of the following cities: Apollo Beach, Riverview, Ruskin, and Gibsonton, as well as Sun City Center with it’s large population of 55+ active seniors.
Apollo Beach is at the heart of the Southshore area which is experiencing business and residential growth. This community of waterfront homes satisfies the needs of the powerboat, sailing, or fishing enthusiast. The private gated communities of Andalucia and Symphony Isles offer bay-front luxury homes, or if you prefer canal-front, then I would suggest Mirabay or Bimini Bay. Apollo Beach is also home to the Tampa Sailing Squadron; 2 marinas; a golf club; a privately owned fitness, tennis and racquet club; a swim club; spas; and much more. Centrally located near downtown Tampa and the gulf beaches, come and experience the difference and enjoy the Florida lifestyle at Apollo Beach. Amazon is building a large facility in Ruskin and the new St. Joseph's Hospital is to be completed next year.
Brandon, while maintaining its community atmosphere, has experienced phenomenal growth. With top-rated schools, a community college, and a nearby university, its beautifully landscaped master-planned and walkable communities, expansive parks, abundant recreational facilities, and a growing economy make Brandon an ideal place to live, work, and raise families. A conveniently located mall and other shopping options; cultural activities; and a wide range of dining choices and entertainment venues offer residents plenty to do. Plus, a wide range of youth sports leagues and programs are available. Additionally, the area boasts several annual events and festivals.
FishHawk Ranch, a Master Planned Community by Newland Communities located in Lithia, features an Aquatic Park, the Osprey Club, lots of walking trails, and a downtown area where people can gather for neighborhood activities. As part of the highly-regarded Hillsborough County Public School District, FishHawk Ranch is home to six top-rated schools located either in, or within a mile and a half of the community. There are also three preschools for the younger ones. For military families, Hillsborough Area Regional Transit (HART) Commuter Express service makes several weekday trips to and from MacDill Air Force Base.
