The Pinellas Trail

Pinellas TrailThe Pinellas Trail is a linear park and recreation trail that became open to the public in December of 1990 and extends over 30 miles from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg. This abandoned CSX railway corridor has been transformed into a scenic, safe place for outdoor enthusiasts to bike, walk, jog, and rollerblade. The trail consists of amenities such as bike racks, benches, water fountains, and rest areas. Approximately 90,000 people a month enjoy the natural landscaping that shade areas of the trail and connects many of Pinellas County’s most picturesque parks. The trail is a great way to explore Pinellas County as views of coastal waterways, parks, roadways and residential neighborhoods are all lined along the route. Eight overpasses were built with safety in mind, allowing trail-goers to cross major intersections easily with no need to stop. The Pinellas Trail allows residents and visitors to exercise and enjoy the outdoors at a place amazingly close to their own front door. More and more people are searching out and purchasing Tarpon Springs real estate on the Pinellas Trail for it’s safety and convenience. My family and I currently live on the trail and it is one of the most enjoyable and friendliest places in town to get some exercise and enjoy the fantastic climate we all moved here for.

The Anclote Key Lighthouse

Anclote Key LighthouseThe Anclote Key Lighthouse is just off the coast of Tarpon Springs and to get there you need a boat. The lighthouse was in the dark for 20 years, suffering vandalism, but was finally restored and re-lit in Sept. 13, 2003 thanks to efforts of a private organization, the Tarpon Springs Historical Society, along with state and federal grants with over a million dollars raised for the eight month long project. Now there are two keeper’s houses on the island, one for the state park ranger who can protect and maintain the lighthouse property. Visitors are welcome to come to the island, the lighthouse, and enjoy the beach.
