The history of Apollo Beach started in 1923 on land owned by the Dickman family, then used annually for farming and grazing pasture. In the early 1950s, Dickman negotiated the sale of the land to three men from New York: Turner, Dean and Clark. They named the land "Tampa Beach", believing the association with Tampa would attract interested persons more readily.
Today, Apollo Beach is a thriving waterfront community with year-round boating, fishing, and other water activities. The estimated 55 miles of canals lead to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico via underpass of the Sunshine Skyway bridge.
Some famous people that came out from this magnificent community include Nick Carter, Debra Lafave and Tessa Ludwick.
