Ruskin Homes for sale

SouthShore Chamber of Commerce-->  Web Site

 The SouthShore Chamber merged two historic Chambers in July of 2011, combining Apollo Beach and Ruskin. The Apollo Beach Chamber was founded in 1985 originally as an all volunteer Welcome Center. The Ruskin Chamber goes back to 1928 and was the very first chamber in Southern Hillsborough County. 

These two communities of SouthShore offer the ideal blend of natural beauty, relaxation and recreation. The area combines both waterfront and rural communities which are fast becoming business destinations as the Tampa Bay area grows.

The mission of the SouthShore Chamber of Commerce is to commit ourselves to growth through proper planning, new membership acquisition and servicing of existing members through value-added projects.
We seek continuous improvement in our ability to provide the leadership needed for effective economic development.

Our vision is to preserve our historic heritage while meeting the changing business needs of our community.

Come discover the excitement of SouthShore!



Located on the shores of the Little Manatee County River in beautiful Hillsborough County, Florida is

the town of Ruskin, a growing community of new construction and recently built homes. Named after its

Founder, John Ruskin, an English writer and social reformist, the township was born in 1908.


In the past several years, the area has transformed from agricultural land to residential and commercial

developments, with many types of homes from which to choose. In Ruskin, homes are affordable and

diverse, with prices ranging from under $100,000 to $300,000.


Public schools include four highly rated institutions: Cypress Creek Elementary School, Ruskin

Elementary School, Shields Middle School, and Lennard High School. There are a number of private
