St. Petersburg Beach Neighborhoods
Today St. Petersburg is a network of historic and architecturally significant neighborhoods, each with its own unique personality and almost all with a link to the parks that make this a real city-by-the-bay.
Proudly the setting of the 1985 movie Cocoon, Bahama Shores is in reality an idyllic community on the scenic Tampa Bay waterfront of southern St. Petersburg. Only 10 minutes from downtown, the fairly affluent Bahama Shores neighborhood boasts large homes, spacious tree-lined streets and a wide range of residents from young professionals to families to retirees.
Formerly an untouched wildlife haven, Placido Bayou derives its name from the Italian word for "tranquil" and is today a gated waterfront community of primarily affluent young families. Placido Bayou residents cherish the security, privacy and cared-for lawns that come with inhabiting a quiet, controlled neighborhood, as well as the private schools, low crime rate and upscale dining and shopping of the northeast St. Petersburg region.
This town is located on its own small peninsula, just south of the world famous Don Cesar Resort in St. Pete Beach. The atmosphere is quaint and laid-back here. All accommodations, shops, and restaurants are located across the street from the beach, except for one small concession stand. This beach is a fabulous Florida getaway.
Quiet, beachside and completely residential, the two Belleair communities (the larger city of Belleair Beach and the tiny, very expensive Belleair Shore) together contain approximately 1,800 residents and absolutely no commerce, save for one motel.
