Stately trees in a wide landscaped median watch over one of the three entrances to this unique and inviting neighborhood. Civic pride is evident in the manicured yards and cleanliness of the community. Egrets, ibises, gulls, and other sea birds tiptoe across front lawns while songbirds rest in trees or soar overhead. Convenient shopping abounds close by. Within the neighborhood is Bay Pointe Plaza, containing Publix Supermarket, Beall’s Outlet, West Marine, Portofino Italian Restaurant, Diamonds Direct, and many other shops and services.
Also within walking distance are Maximo Marina, Bay Moorings Animal Hospital, Mercantile Bank, Blockbuster, Gold’s Gym, Radio Shack, New York Bagels and Bread, Orvee’s Pet Center, and Beef O’Brady’s Sports Caf. A city recycling drop-off center is located on 54th Avenue South, across from the 41st Street South neighborhood entrance. Maximo Moorings offers quick, convenient access to I-275, the Sunshine Skyway, Fort DeSoto, Eckerd College, St. Pete Beach, and Downtown St. Petersburg.
