Davis Island History

Davis Island was built up from two natural small islands formally known as Little Grassy Key and Big Grassy Key. Davis Island has two man-made islands atop of these natural islands at the mouth of the Hillsborough River. The islands were built from mud dredged from the bottom of Tampa Bay in the 1920s. Developer and Tampa native DP Davis planned a resort community with three hotels, nine-hole golf course, an airport, and a swimming pool resort. The development stalled when the Florida land boom of the early 1920s started to slow down and unfortunately, Davis was mysteriously lost at sea while making a transatlantic voyage in 1926. However, much of the Mediterranean-style structures that began in the 1920s still stand today and several have historic designations. Today, Davis Island is an eclectic mix of residential and retail areas with unique architectural styles, primarily due to the boom in the 1920s and then the slowdown of the 1930s.

Davis Island is known as "Tampa's Island suburb" and because of its rich history, it actually has tours that folks can take each week. But, because there are heavy congestion and traffic around the Tampa General Hospital, most of these tours take place on the weekends.

This makes its way to Davis Island Causeway, where you can follow this tour to check out all the unique historical buildings, homes, and stops along the way.

Other sports facilities on the island include a tennis complex and softball fields at the Davis Island Park.

At the south end of the island is the Davis Island Dog Beach, a fun place to let your four-legged family members run free. This follows out onto Seven Avenue Peninsula with several other beachfront parks and the Davis Island Yacht Club. This peninsula wraps around Seaplane Basin and seaplane basin Park where you can hitch a ride on a floatplane at the Atlas aviation of Tampa.
