Indian Shores Real Estate Information

Situated south of its sibling city Indian Rocks Beach, the town of Indian Shores hosts almost 2,000 residents over an area of just 1.4 square miles. Originally a part of Indian Rocks Beach at its inception in 1949, Indian Shores was separated in 1973 to better manage the area’s resources and the precious local economy. Nestled in one of the most beautiful parts of Florida, residents take comfort in enjoying the inherent beauty of the area, ranging from the white and sandy beaches to the crystal blue waters and clear skies that remain for most of the year.

Town Square Nature Park, a facility featuring long boardwalks through massive mangroves, provides the authentic Indian Shores experience. TIki Gardens, formerly a tourist attraction, is a large beach access parking lot that supports the flow of beach goers to some of Indian Shores’ best strips of sand. The Mayor Bob McEwen Veterans Park salutes local veterans and also offers several picnic beach areas, barbeque pits, and some of Indian Shores’ best fishing spots. The most recently built Estelle Harper Park includes a children’s playground, tennis center, covered pavilion, and rental units that are typically used to host family gatherings and business functions.

The local Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is world-renown for its dedication the preservation of wildlife. The free attraction is one of Indian Shores’ biggest tourism drivers and features hundreds of pelicans, herons, cormorants, and other local species. Smuggler’s Adventure Golf is a must-see for residents and visitors to Indian Shores because of the live alligators and elaborately-appointed and decorated golf course. The facility offers a unique experience different from most other courses in the region.

The Indian Shores Public Library is very small and shares its home with the local town hall. Although it is only open two days a week, the library allows all residents to borrow from its collections. The library is actually known to carry more new release books and media than the much larger and better-funded Tampa Public Library System.
