Little known fact: the city's name is rumored to have been inspired by the sight of a large rock covered with bayonets.
Although the name may imply it, this place wasn't named by someone held at bayonet's point. It's pretty hard to think that, especially when these days Bayonet Point equates to pristine white sand of Florida minus the price tag. This small community in Pasco County has been enjoying Florida sunshine and its close proximity to great beaches. If the idea of a 365-day vacation in a tropical paradise is the good life, it's time to go for a ride and check out rental properties in this affordable haven.
