                      Car: Recommended

                      On the beach and easily accessible to everything! Restaurants, shops, ATM's, hair salon, groceries, Library, and recreation within walking distance.

                      A short drive to major shopping (Tyrone Square Mall), historic John's Pass, and other attractions.

                      Tampa International Airport is 45 minutes away. Downtown St. Petersburg is 30 minutes by car, Ellenton Premium Outlets 45 minutes, Sarasota Ringling Museum 1 hour, Busch Gardens 1 hour, and Orlando Disney World 2 hours.

                      While a vehicle is recommended, once you arrive at Ocean Sands, you could easily enjoy the services within walking distance, and/or take the Suncoast Beach Trolley, which goes up and down Gulf Boulevard from Clearwater to Pass-A-Grille, and can be ridden at a nominal charge. The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) runs regular bus service as well, with a stop directly across from our condo.

                      Other Activities: College & professional sports teams, Chihuly Glass Collection, Dali Museum, Ybor City, and many more.
