Davis Islands

Davis Islands

Developed in the 1920s, Davis Islands evokes the charm of historic Tampa while offering convenience due to  its proximity to Downtown Tampa. The community is bookended by Tampa General Hospital to the north and the Peter O. Knight Airport to the South with the Lee Roy Selmon Crosstown Expressway just a short drive away.  Davis Islands is truly a “fly in” community.

The Islands are unique in that there are no stoplights within the community and the streets are typically named after bodies of water. The majority of the community’s streets are lined by sidewalks allowing residents easily to walk, run, or bike around the Islands or to Downtown Tampa, Harbour Island, Bayshore Boulevard or Hyde Park.

On Davis Islands, you’ll find a quaint, yet thriving, downtown area complete with a pharmacy, shops, banks, pubs and restaurants serving a wide range of fare including Thai, Greek, and Italian. The Islands also boast their own yacht basin, tennis courts, dog beach, and park. The community pool is under renovation, slated to open in 2014.  While you can find some of the biggest waterfront homes, and biggest names, in Tampa on the Islands, the community also offers townhomes, condos and apartments in addition to single-family homes to potential residents.   Many of the original 1920’s homes remain today.

Davis Islands easily fits in the “best of both worlds” category due to its small town feel in addition to its close proximity to Downtown Tampa.
