All About The Apollo Beach Area
Today we’re going to take a trip to the Apollo Beach area and explore all the little towns surrounding it. So buckle up and let’s get started!
Focus: East and Southside Tampa
Today, we’re focusing on the east and southeast side of Tampa. I’ve lumped Apollo Beach, Ruskin, Yi Mamma, and Sun City Center together for this one.
I used to group Apollo Beach in with Brandon and Riverview, but now I’m going to lump some other towns in with Apollo Beach. Confused yet? Don’t worry, I’ll break it down for you.
A Town Built Around Canals
Let’s start with Apollo Beach. It’s a quaint little beach town with a preserved beach and even some manatees that like to hang out by the power plant. It’s a great spot if you’re into water activities because the whole town is built around canals with easy Gulf access.
Now, Ruskin is pretty similar, but with more new developments popping up. Dr. Horton has built a lot of new houses in this area, and there are some high-end houses being built in South Shore Yacht Club. It’s a great spot if you want a mix of older and newer houses.
Next up is Yi Mamma, which is a quirky town named after the founder’s three daughters – Wilma, Mod, and Mary. There’s quite a bit of new development happening here, with a mix of Dr. Horton new construction houses and bigger houses on big lots.
Sun City Center
Lastly, we have Sun City Center, which is known for its 55+ communities, but there are also a lot of other new developments. If you’re looking for a newer house and don’t mind commuting, this could be a great spot for you.
So why should you consider living in this area? Here are four reasons:
- You love water activities and easy Gulf access.
- You want a mix of older and newer houses.
- You’re looking for bigger houses on big lots.
- You don’t mind commuting to work.
