And Fun In the Sun On Treasure Island
In the heat of a summer day there are few things better than enjoying a cup of Hawaiian-style shaved ice. Well, that plus spending some time on the beach. You can do that with ease if you live in Tampa Bay. Just head to Treasure Island and all your childhood dreams will come true. Treasure Island is a cool town along the gulf shore beaches of Pinellas County. It’s not the largest town but probably one of the most popular ones. It is conveniently located between St Pete Beach and Madeira Beach and offers direct access to/from the main land of our county.
If you want to quench your thirst with some shaved ice, come visit Beach Snoballs at 10927 Gulf Blvd (and go like their Facebook Page here). You’ll be surprised by the number of flavors your can find here. And for the brave ones they offer Spiked Snoballs which are infused with rum. Then sit back and relax on the front patio or grab your cup and hit the sand. Sunset beach, which is a unique area in Treasure Island, is one of my favorite local beaches. The water is near to parking, no long walks across blazing hot sand and shells. Parts of Sunset Beach are still a bit washed out after recent tropical storm Debbie. But no worries, even when there’s a crowd you’ll find a nice spot to land and enjoy the beach.
Here’s a short video for you to enjoy and give an idea what it’s like to drive along Gulf Blvd and parts of intracoastal way in Treasure Island. Summer is a fun time in Pinellas. While temperatures can get close to 100F in the rest of Florida, in Tampa Bay we rarely get over 90F. That’s because our peninsula is surrounded by waters of Tampa Bay on one side and Gulf of Mexico on the other. This provides us with nice breezy tropical weather with occasional afternoon showers in the summer.
