Indian Shores

Originally an Indian campsite which got its name from the large red rocks found along its shoreline, Indian Shores is one of the oldest beach communities in the area. In 1883, four Cedar Key speculators sailing to St. Petersburg stopped to explore the island; and, having been fascinated by the Island's possibilities for future development, purchased it for a nominal sum.

The region soon became a popular residential and vacation area where the charm of summer cottages became popular and spread throughout the adjoining communities. Until a wooden turn bridge was built in 1916, a ferryboat transported pedestrians to the island summer resort. In 1905, the railroad ran a spur line from the mainland to the beach and a hotel was built, adding to the island's popularity. Though the railroad spur was later abandoned, the community continued to grow - especially during the post World War II building boom.

Originally named Indian Rocks Beach South Shore, the town was incorporated in 1949. The town averages only a block in width between the Gulf of Mexico and an area known as “The Narrows”. Indian Shores is home to the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary, a non-profit agency dedicated to the care and release of injured birds native to the Gulf Coast. A colorful bar and high-end restaurants also epitomize the beach town.
