Prime Location

Located in Palmetto off 28th Avenue East and Palm View Road, your new home at Jackson Crossing is just minutes from major roadways including I-75, I-275, US Highway 41, and US Highway 19. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is only 4.8 miles away, providing convenient access to St. Petersburg and south Pinellas County, along with views of beautiful sunsets, dolphins, and sparkling waters.

In this prime location, you are within 30 minutes of the cities of St. Pete (16.5 miles), Bradenton (6 miles), and Sarasota (16 miles), yet you can enjoy a laid-back Florida setting and considerably more affordable home prices when compared to the larger cities!

Grocery and daily necessities are close to home, as well as plenty of outdoor recreation. Spending the day on one of the Gulf Coast's gorgeous beaches is a breeze thanks to living only 15 miles from the sugar-white sands of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, within 25 miles to Siesta Key and Longboat Key, and a quick 23 mile drive from St. Pete Beach via the Sunshine Skyway.

Speaking of the Skyway, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge is also a major fishing destination and a uniquely Florida state park! When the new Sunshine Skyway Bridge was built, the old bridge was turned into the world’s longest fishing pier and is now the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park.

In addition, marinas, fishing, and waterfront dining are just minutes from home, on the waters of the nearby Manatee River and Terra Ceia Bay.
