When you see a neighborhood for the first time, the most important thing
is often the way it looks, like its homes and its setting. Some places look
the same, but they only reveal their true character after living in them for
a while because they contain a unique mix of occupational or cultural groups.
This neighborhood is very unique in some important ways, according to
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive exploration and analysis.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking.
The Floridana Beach / Ballard Pines neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet.
Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront
that are attractive to residents and visitors alike.
In addition to being coastal, Floridana Beach / Ballard Pines is a very nautical neighborhood,
meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and
on the water. This gives the neighborhood a very nautical feel,
with some seaside and shipping feel, which some may really enjoy the sights
and sounds of.
Notable & Unique: Diversity

Greek and Brazilian ancestry people living in it than nearly
any neighborhood in America? It's true! In fact, 5.3% of
this neighborhood's residents have Greek ancestry and 0.9% have Brazilian ancestry.
Floridana Beach / Ballard Pines is also pretty special linguistically. Significantly, 3.9% of its residents five years old and above primarily
speak Portuguese at home. While this may seem like a small percentage, it is higher
