Living in Treasure Island Florida

Pin It

Treasure Island one of my favorite barrier islands here in the St Petersburg area.

I probably should not say this because I have a lot of favorite spots between Pass a grille and Indian Rocks beach.

Anyway, the fact that I live in Treasure Island tells you enough.

Treasure Island has beautiful wide beaches and you can take a long walk from Sunset beach /Blind pass, the most southern tip of Treasure Island all the way to John’s Pass Bridge the most northern tip of the Island.

Treasure Island is 3.8 miles long walk and it is beautiful. On the way you can stop at Caddy’s beach bar for some live music and a drink or you can get some great food at Sloppy Joes or just take a break in one of the small intimate little hotels bars.

Whatever you do, make sure you don’t miss the beautiful sunset. Tresure Island is famous for them.

The population of Treasure Island is about 7500 and the medium income per family is about $65,000 per year. The city was incorporated in 1955 it is divided into tiny little neighborhoods like Paradise Island, Isle of Palms, Sunset beach and Isle of Capri. TI has 28 miles of bay front in addition to the nearly 4 miles of beach front.

As you can imagine, with all this waterfront, Treasure Island’s real estate is in high demand. It is a great place to call home or buy a vacation condo or house.

Needless to say, with all the water around us, we are a prime destination for boaters, people that like to fish, beach and sun lovers, you name it. Treasure Island is only 40 minutes from Tampa airport and the new TI Bridge makes it easy to get on and off the island. Shopping is a pleasure, we have a lot of little beach stores and souvenir places along with a family run hardware store, surf shops, shell shops,  a seven eleven and 2 gas station, ice cream parlors and flower stores, it is all here.( brand new Publix will open in 2008)  When it comes to restaurants, we are also blessed, my favorite place here in Treasure Island is “The Perl” high end international cuisine. The “Middle Grounds Grill” and “Grouper’s” feature wonderful fish dishes and at Rick T’s you can get you traditional American food. Oh before I forget, we also have the Café Berlin which serves authentic German food. There are lots of other places, to many to mention. I read somewhere that Treasure Island is a unique blend of a small town laid back beach community and an internationally known vacation destination.  I could not agree more.
