Bearss Glen Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Bearss Glen is a small residential community in Lake Magdalene, Florida, part of the Tampa Bay region. It is situated just south of Bearss Avenue, north of April Lane, west of Florida Avenue, and east of Interstate 275. This small community is located perfectly for quick access to great area destinations. Being just off of Interstate 275 provides great opportunities for travel, not only for employment but for entertainment as well.
Located just four miles away from Bearss Glen, between Fletcher Avenue and Fowler Avenue, is one of the biggest colleges in the state of Florida, the University of South Florida. This massive college provides education to a large number of Tampa students and is also host to numerous popular area events. The Sun Dome, which is home to the Bulls basketball and volleyball teams, is also a large venue that brings in many national musical acts, comedians, speakers, and even politicians.
Close proximity to the University of South Florida also means that it is common to spot a great deal of Bulls pride throughout the area. Many area businesses display signs cheering on the team and it is common to see an abundance of green and gold throughout the community on game days as residents show their support for the Bulls.
For entertainment, residents have a few options. The first is to take a five-mile trip to Lettuce Lake Park, slightly past the University of South Florida, for a day of canoeing, kayaking, or boating on the Hillsborough River. Another option would be the slightly longer six-mile trip to Busch Gardens off Busch Boulevard for a day of riding roller coasters and enjoying exotic animal displays. The final option would be to take a trip to the Grand Prix of Tampa, which is only about three miles away. Grand Prix of Tampa is a small putt putt golf course with a large go-kart track.
