Pelican Island Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The peninsular shaped Pelican Island neighborhood on Old Tampa Bay is a beautiful waterfront community that is well manicured and maintained. Nature’s beauty shines through in this cozy community, where dolphins can be seen jumping out of the water at times, and butterflies add to the beauty on the grounds.
Pelican Island, though it is accessible from only one entrance and is secluded living in the community, still offers a great location in Tampa. It is only a five-minute drive to the Tampa International Airport, making air travel for vacations and business trips convenient for residents.
For beachcombers, there are beautiful white sand beaches in the area on the Gulf of Mexico, offering sun, sand, and water in gorgeous settings. Included are the Saint Petersburg and Clearwater beaches. Within the community itself, there is plenty of sunshine and water, and boats have access directly into Tampa Bay. For residents who want to participate in boating and water activities, this is a great benefit to the community.
School-aged children living on Pelican Island may attend the Dickenson Elementary School, Webb Middle School, or Excel High School. College students are only a half-mile from DeVry University. Other nearby colleges are Keiser University, ITT Educational Services, and the Art Institute of Tampa.
Recreation is abundant in the Tampa area. The Florida Aquarium and the Lowry Park Zoo, which is recognized as one of the most family-friendly zoos in the nation and features over 1,800 animals, are both just a fifteen-minute drive from Pelican Island. Just over half an hour’s drive will expand options to include Adventure Island and the ever-popular Busch Gardens.
