More on Treasure Island Florida
Treasure Island, as luxuriously fanciful as it sounds is actually a barrier island in Pinellas County Florida. It got its name in the early 20th century after several property owners attempted to boost sales of homes being developed on the island by first burying a few wooden chests around the island and then pretending to discover them around 1915. After claiming the chests were filled with treasure, the news of the discovery quickly spread and folks started calling the island Treasure Islands. The island itself is only 3 feet in elevation and in 1848, a large storm carved out John's Pass on the island's north end and split off to smaller islands called the Isle of Palms and the Isle of Capri. In the 1950s, treasure Island had a huge surge in residential and hotel construction and today is filled with condominium buildings, complexes, single-family homes, and a thriving restaurant scene in downtown. Legendary baseball slugger Babe Ruth even had a winter beachfront home on Treasure Island after his retirement.
Why Choose Treasure Island?
Treasure Island makes a beautiful place to call home either permanently, seasonally, or as a vacation destination. It's nestled between John's Pass and St. Pete Beach and encompasses the small islands of Isle of Capri, Isle of Palms and Paradise Island, which is home to the Treasure Island Causeway heading over to St. Petersburg. Toward the north end of the island are residential homes that sit right on the beach but between 119th Ave. and 104th Ave., you'll find hotels and resorts along the beach. There are residential homes that lined the bay as well and also the three main islands that are part of Treasure Island are all residential. Nearly every home is waterfront with boat docks and access to the Gulf of Mexico through John's Pass.
If you're looking to relax, chill out, and enjoy retirement, your vacation home, or just the beach, Treasure Island is the place to do it. It's primarily a resort town with a few restaurants and a couple of markets. However, St. Pete Beach is a couple of minutes south and St. Petersburg is just 20 minutes East along 1st Ave., North. Major shops, restaurants, markets and other services and amenities are no more than about 5 to 20 minutes from the majority of residential homes on Treasure Island. But if you're looking to escape at all, this is the place to do it.
