Shorecrest is located in St. Petersburg, Florida, a small, vibrant city across the Bay from Tampa, a rapidly growing and major urban center. Known simply as St. Pete by locals, the area is full of arts, culture, parks, award-winning beaches, craft brews, a funky downtown and don't even get us started on the innovative, family-owned restaurant scene!
Downtown St. Petersburg has seen recent, dramatic growth, with a younger population focusing on education, tech, quality food and locally owned businesses. Bicycles, breweries, fresh produce, puppies and outdoor events make this the place to socialize any night of the week. Twenty eight miles of sandy beaches along the Gulf of Mexico provide additional opportunities for paddleboarding, volleyball and just plain relaxing.
The greater Tampa Bay area also includes the cities of Tampa, Clearwater and Sarasota. A system of major roads and multiple bridges spanning the Bay itself makes the entire region easily accessible. Mid-state attractions such as Sea World and Walt Disney World are less than two hours away, while Florida's Atlantic Coast and Cape Kennedy are a three-hour drive due east.
A part of the area's fabric since 1923, Shorecrest has deep connections and relationships with many businesses, organizations and families in the area. The Climate
