Most probably nobody knows of this little town called Ruskin. So let me start by saying that this is a historic community located on the South shores area of Tampa Bay, the Little Manatee River and the Ruskin Inlet, approximately located 16 miles southeast of Tampa. This town was founded in 1908 by an English writer named John Ruskin. Historically Ruskin has been an agriculture and fishing community. Also, has anybody heard about "Ruskin tomatoes"? That is basically what the product of the agriculture side of Ruskin. Most of the agriculture land has been sold for residential development. At the present time, Ruskin has some big community plan to build it like Key West type of community with mixed use and pedestrian friendly town center. This is the vision for years to come. This little town would not be little after this plan is implemented completely. Maybe after all of this, Ruskin would be known just like Key West. Real estate in this part of town has been tremendously pretty busy. It is still a quite little town, but not far from the major shopping areas. I hope this has given you an insight of where Ruskin is and its history. Any comments or input?
