Could someone familiar with the area give me an idea how far is it from South Beach Condo, 11360 Gulf Blvd. to a decent grocery, a pharmacy, inexpensive restaurants ? Does anyone know a place not too far away to rent a wheelchair for an elderly person ? Thanks for any suggestions.

Kola,

There's a Publix Supermarket about 3 miles away from the condo at 6850 Gulfport Bldv S, South Pasedena Fl, Phone: 727-347-4526
From your condo head south about a quarter mile on Gulf Blvd, make a Left onto
Treasure Island Causeway, make the first Right beyond the causeway onto Sunset Drive South, proceed about a half-mile south and make a short jog
on Villa Grande Ave S - Right on Villa Grande then Left back onto Sunset Drive South,proceed about another half-mile to Publix, once you cross the Pasadena Ave S intersection when you're on Sunset Drive S after Villa Grande, Sunset Drive S changes names and becomes Gulfport Blvd S - it's the same road, different name. This Publix store has a pharmacy.

There's a Walgreen's Pharmacy about a half-mile south from the condo at 10551 Gulf Blvd, PH: 727-367-7028. Head south on Gulf blvd and instead of turning left at Treasure Island Causeway, keep proceeding south a short distance until you get to Walgreen's.

You can contact http://www.americanwheelchairs.com/ - they're located in Largo, Florida. I'm not sure if they rent wheelchairs, if not, they should be able to steer you in the right direction.

There's a McDonald's restaurant on Gulf Blvd just before you get to the Treasure Island Causeway. For other Treasure Island Restaurants see

Have a good trip

Publix Supermarket

There should be a new publix supermarket in Treasure Island, about a 1/4 mile from the South Beach condo.

The new publix, took over an old supermarket, and renovated the building.

London,

You're right - I forgot about the closer Publix - it's about 3 short blocks south of the Treasure Island Causeway, make a left and go to 111 104th Ave,
Ph: 727- 363-1042

Actually, they took over the Treasure Island Fun Center. A local landmark that has hosted many a kids birthday party. They sold it to publix and moved to Seminole in an abandoned shopping center.
