We have no doubt you will enjoy our quaint downtown area which offers wonderful local cuisine, unique shopping, and museums. Southern Pines is perfectly situated in the BEST location imaginable. Both Publix grocery store and Bayfront Medical Hospital are less than a half mile away. If however, you wish to head to the big city of Tampa, you can easily hop on the new Suncoast Parkway linking Brooksville to Tampa, to enjoy the sports, theater, museums or other Tampa attractions. Closer to home, you can explore the wonders of Florida’s only spring-fed waterpark, Weeki Wachee Springs where you can witness the magic of the nostalgic underwater mermaid show, take a riverboat cruise, or find excitement at Buccaneer Bay Waterpark. The Gulf of Mexico is a short drive and provides the most beautiful setting for a day at the beach or on the water.
