A tropical paradise on the edge of Tampa Bay, Oldsmar Florida is a city lined with palm and oak trees, blooming native perennials, and the sparkling clear water of Tampa Bay. Take a deep breath, kick back, and rent your next apartment in the heart of the Sunshine State.
Ransom E. Olds, an influential pioneer in the automobile industry, developed one of the first affordable cars — the Oldsmobile. In 1913, he bought land north of Tampa Bay and named it “R.E. Olds-on-the-Bay.” Eventually, it became Oldsmar.
To celebrate the city’s beginnings, Oldsmar holds an annual festival called “Oldsmar Days and Nights,” which features parades, a carnival and midway, car shows, classic rock, and the star of the show — the Oldsmobile.
With many shopping areas, restaurants, flea markets, and parks, Oldsmar offers a small-town atmosphere just minutes from busy downtown Tampa Bay. A fast-growing area with several rental apartments to choose from, Oldsmar is a Pinellas County gem.
