I live in Parrish, which is on the north side of the Manatee river, still in Manatee County.
I travel to St Pete and Clearwater, and Tampa airport a lot, sometimes 3 trips a week. It generally takes me 25 minutes to get from River Plantation Community in Parrish to the town center in St. Pete. It takes me 35 minutes to Tampa airport most times during the day. It takes me 1 hour to get to Clearwater beach. And it takes about 45 minutes to get to Tampa downtown.
So if you are working in St. Pete or Tampa and you want to live in Manatee County, Parrish is the place to look for your new residence. I can help with that if you need it. Price ranges vary, many different lot sizes from standard 60x110 in deed restricted communities to small farmsteads to multi acre properties. It is a bedroom suburb still holding onto the rural and quaint feel of country living. Great fishing, good hunting, 25 minutes to Sarasota social amenities and quality entertainment and too many fine restaurants to choose from.
So keep me in mind when you decide to be serious and I am sure i can find you the right place to hang your hat.
