If you want to have a day of exploring, then come to Emerson Point in Palmetto Florida.  There are many hiking trails and lots of things to discover.  It is also a great way to just get away and relax for the day.  I created a slide show of just a few things you can see there while visiting Emerson Point in Palmetto Florida.Emerson Point is located on the West side of Palmetto right on the bay on Snead Island.  As you can see by the pictures, it has some incredible views, but it also contains a lot of history.  It was interesting to read about the people who lived there earlier and see the remains of the chimney and cistern of their homestead.  The walk-paths are clearly marked so you won't get lost.  I haven't gone up to the viewing tower yet, I will do that on the next trip when it i...

What a great little park, I was pleasantly suprised to find a skateboard park there.  This made me very happy as I have seen skateboarders in the past around Palmetto and they never really had a good place to go to skateboard, now they do at Blackstone Park in Palmetto Florida.Blackstone Park also has a very nice soccer field and many times I have driven by to see games in progress.  This little park is tucked away on the West side of Palmetto off of 14th Ave W.  Stop by and check it out, plan a nice family picnic and spend some time relaxing and unwinding at Blackstone Park.If you would like more information on Palmetto, CLICK HERE

Tucked away in West Palmetto is a neighborhood called Deer Run.  It is located close to I 275 that takes you to Clearwater and St Petersburg Florida, this makes Deer Run a good choice for commuters to those areas.  Deer Run consists of homes that would be categorized as move up homes, it is also a neighborhood you should look at if you commute to Tampa, Brandon, Rivervie, Bradenton or Sarasota.Homes in Deer Run were built around 1987 and forward.  The square footage of these homes range from 1400 - 3000 sq ft.Deer Run doesn't have any ammenities, however this keeps the homeowner association dues down.  If you are looking for a home in the area of Palmetto, then check out Deer Run.  For other Palmetto Real Estate Listings CLICK HERE

Snead Island in Palmetto Florida is located at the end of 10th Street West, just over the bridge and you are in a different world, the feel of old Florida is in the air, you take a breath and relax and let the essence of Florida take over.  Tropical homes are evident in Heritage Bay, what a great little community tucked away from it all.  There are older homes on the canals, some have been remodeled and some haven't but none the less the canals lead to the bay so you just can't go wrong.  There is new construction on the island as well.  Amberwynd is a gated community that hosts million dollar homes.  My first sale was in Amberwynd only after being an agent for 4 days, that neighborhood will always have special memories for me.At the end of Snead Island is Emerson Point, what a great pl...

The Regatta Pointe Marina is located in Palmetto just before you go over the green bridge off to the west.  This is one of my favorite places to go because of the Riverside Cafe.  You can dine outside and watch the boats in the Marina or watch the sun set at night while listening to the live music they have there.With a membership to the Boat Club, you can rent a boat for a day and enjoy the waters of the Manatee River.  If you own a boat, you can come into the Marina, where there's a ship store and stock up on snacks, gas, boating supplies, charts, chart books and more.If you own a boat and need a place to dock it at, the Regatta Pointe Marinia might be the place for you.  Here is a price list for the slip rentals.Go check it out sometime.  If anything, just to enjoy a nice lunch or di...

Emerson Point is a 195-acre park located in Palmetto on Snead Island.  It is located at the end of 17th St W where the Manatee River meets the Gulf of Mexico.Click here to view a map of where Emerson Point is located at.I decided to take a drive out there to get some pictures of the area and of the water.  I have been there a few times, but until yesterday, I wasn't even aware of what I had been missing.  Normally when I go, I drive all the way to the end of Emerson Point to the water.  Yesterday, I noticed that soon after you enter into Emerson Point, there is an area off to the left to park your car, so I decided to check it out.  I was surprised at what I found!!  Located there on top of the hill are still some old remains of an Indian Village and earlier pioneers homes.  It was COOL...

                             Yesterday, Palmetto celebrated the 4th of July fun style!  I had a lot of fun there.  It was fun to watch the kids play on the rides, listen to the music and sit on the pier watching the sun set as all the boats came into the Marina to watch the fireworks from their boats.  And of course the fireworks topped it all off.  It was an all around fun day!There was something there for everyone to do.Live bands playing throughout the dayTons of food, beer & beveragesGifts & craftsSmall car showGames and rides for the kids including a HUGE water-slide, a fun house and several other carnival ridesPony ridesA circus that included a couple of comedians, a clown, a guy that walked the wheel while it was spinning and a 17 year old girl riding a motorcycle in a steal cage...

 Looking for a first time home buyer community, then look no more Fosters Creek is that option. 3 and 4 bedroom homes ranging in 1100 - 1300 square footage.  Fosters Creek is located in Palmetto Florida, close to shopping, interstates, schools and the water.  If you live in St Petersburg then Fosters Creek is something you want to consider, it is only a couple miles from I 275 just a hop over the Skyway Bridge and you will be in St Petersburg.  It is also convenient to Tampa, Bradenton and Sarasota, giving Fosters Creek even more appeal.

 Waterfront living, executive homes, luxury homes, this is what describes Rivieria Dunes.  Sitting right on the Manatee River, Rivieria Dunes contains one of the last protected harbors to be built.  The selection of homes are single family homes, condos and town homes, either choice displays the best of everything.  Granite countertops, private elevators, spectacular views, it just doesn't get any better than this.  Boat slips are available for sale within the community, however take note that only motor boats will probably work.  Rivieria Dunes is on the east side of the bridge and isn't tall enough for sail boats to go under to get to the bay.  If you want to live in Rivieria Dunes and own a sailboat then your two options would be to get a slip at Regatta Point or the Bradenton Yacht ...

 What a great place to go to relax.  It is one of my favorite places to be, anytime by the water is relaxing and it always reminds me why I moved to Florida.  The Riverside Café is a great place to eat, I have been going there for years.  I always sit outside so I can enjoy the water view and the sounds of the marina.  Looking to the south will give you a view of Bradenton, boy has that view changed over the years.  Palmetto is a quiet town and very laid back, whenever I need to slow down it is where I go.  Regatta Point gives me a chance to catch my breath and remember what Florida is all about.  Be sure to visit it sometime, maybe we will cross paths. Looking for real estate in Palmetto, CLICK HERE to find more information about Palmetto Real Estate

Tucked away off of 29th Street in Palmetto Florida is a little community called The Carpentras.  I came across it while showing homes to one of my buyers one day.  There are some unique qualities to this neighborhood I thought I would share with you.  My buyers decided they wanted to purchase a home in The Carpentras so we wrote a contract on the one they liked best.  As we are going through the process we get a call stating the buyers had to fill out an application and pay an application fee before we can close on the property.  Hmm, this is strange I think to myself, this isn't a condo or villa community, this is a single family home community.  Well I contact my buyer and we go through the application process.  We find out  a new rule has been passed that does not allow leasing of th...
