Tampa Boat-Friendly Neighborhoods

Boating culture is alive and well in Florida, and the Tampa Bay Area in particular happens to be one of its hottest spots to get out and enjoy an afternoon out on the water. For home buyers searching waterfront homes, Tampa also has a number of incredibly desirable boat-friendly neighborhoods that are must-see for any boat or yacht owner. 

Bay Crest Park

When you take your boat out more often than your car, it pays to live in a neighborhood like Bay Crest Park. Homes in the Bay Crest Park neighborhood are sectioned off by waterways that intertwine through the community and lead out to the Gulf. And with larger driveways also typically included with many homes, it's a great location for home buyers who own boats and yachts but aren't lucky enough to find a home on the waterfront. Additionally, there are plenty of boat ramps nearby where you can easily launch your vessel, cruise around the bay and enjoy the sights of this beautiful area. The homes of Bay Crest Park themselves often have their own docks and slips, from which residents can easily access the bay. This area is not only popular for its water access, but it also has a lovely park and plenty of shopping, dining, and entertainment options nearby.

Bay Port Colony

Located along Tampa's waterfront, Bay Port Colony gives residents the chance to call  the bay their backyard. This wonderful waterfront community includes homes on large lots with direct access to Tampa Bay. Residents of Bay Port Colony can enjoy the beautiful views of the bay from their docks, and partake in all sorts of activities such as boating, fishing, swimming, and more. The best part is that all of this convenience doesn't come at the expense of limited space. Residences at Bay Port Colony are large and spacious, and many house multiple bedrooms, bathrooms, and garages. And if you ever feel more land-bound, the sizable lots ensure you'll have plenty of green area to enjoy. Inside, kitchens are well-equipped with modern appliances, and top of the line finishes can be found throughout.
