A St. Petersburg, FL Neighborhood

Mix in excellent schools, numerous parks, the area’s finest medical care, a nature preserve, an active community recreation center, new fishing pier and quick boat entry to Tampa Bay. And what you have is Shore Acres, a tightly knit community of approximately 2,300 households popular with young families, first-time homebuyers and retirees.

All are conveniently located within the Shore Acres community. Churches consist of Lutheran Church of the Cross and Northeast Presbyterian, and just over the Snell Isle Bridge is St. Thomas Episcopal Church and St. Raphael Catholic Church.
