Everyone coming from the mainland to the beach in the early days of Indian Rocks Beach would be greeted by a view of the Gulf of Mexico straight ahead.
That same view can still be seen today from this spot where “excursionists” came across, first on Harvey Hendrick’s ferry and then on the automobile bridge.
It’s not surprising that tourist facilities sprang up here in the early 1900s as this became a popular place to enjoy the beauty of the beach. People from Largo, Tampa, and far beyond liked the “laid back” charm of Indian Rocks Beach, and that is still true today.
