St. Petersburg

Sawgrass Trails Manufactured Home Community is a 10-minute drive from downtown St. Petersburg, positioned along the west side of beautiful Tampa Bay. Once known mainly for being a sleepy town of green benches and an iconic pier, downtown St. Pete has evolved to offer everything you could want from an urban hotspot, from shopping and dining options to entertainment and arts.

Check out year-round concerts and festivals at stunning Vinoy Park, or stroll along the bayside walking and biking trail to spot dolphins and manatees, or take in a beach volleyball game. When you arrive at Beach Drive, you can take your pick from any of the award-winning restaurants lining the street or sip a cocktail at a rooftop bar while enjoying the view of Tampa Bay. And in the fall of 2019, enjoy the grand opening of the new St. Pete Pier District.
