Indian Shores is a very small city located in Pinellas County. A beachfront community with fewer than 2,000 permanent residents, the town has recently implemented major infrastructure upgrades that have given it a pleasant appearance for tourists; these improvements included moving electrical utility lines underground and resurfacing roads, as well as installing new crosswalks and other measures for pedestrian safety. The current municipal center is being replaced with a new facility.
Municipal recreation programs are one of the many reasons why tourists come to stay in Indian Shores holiday homes for rent. While the pristine beaches on the barrier island Indian Shores are a large draw for visitors, so are the many programs that the town runs. These range from ballroom dancing lessons and Tai Chi seminars to yoga classes and bridge competitions.
Many of the programs are free, with bridge classes being offered on Mondays for both beginning and intermediate players so that even tourists new to the game can have a class targeted toward their level. Other programs have a nominal fee. Yoga exercises classes take place on Tuesdays and cost $6 per session while "chair exercise class" designed for seniors and others who may need a low-impact exercise routine costs a dollar less and also take place on Tuesdays.
Wednesdays is the busiest day for Indian Shores recreation programs, with classes offered in Zumba exercise, Tae Kwon Do, and ballroom dancing.
