Davis Island - Bring Your Boat!
Davis Island was named for the man with big dreams and ideas who developed the land in the 1920’s. Many of the Davis Island homes for sale are one of the original homes and buildings still in use today: the Palace of Florence with its ornate Italian architecture is a good example. Well known names then and now have made homes on the island. It’s close to downtown, but until you look out to the Tampa skyline, it seems a world away.
The island features outdoor activities. There are parks; even one for the dogs to meet their friends and run free. A walking trail has benches along the way. The Davis Island Yacht Club focuses on all things sailing so you can imagine how gorgeous the surrounding water looks on a windy day.
With the great variety in dining choices, you can go from Thailand at Thai Island, Mexico at Estrelas to Italy at the Rick’s Italian and never need to cross the bridge. Or stay in the USA at Farrell’s or 220 East. When you’re thirsty there are several watering holes to try.
Davis Island is served by Hillsborough County Public Schools, one of the largest in the nation. The school system puts a high value on teachers who are working with the students every day. They believe that empowering effective teachers is a key component to improving education at the classroom level. Schools on the island receive high ratings from both educators and parents.
