This "linear park" reminds me of the promenades in Europe without the cafes. That's the only downside to "the longest sidewalk" as there are few places to stop and drink or eat. Jogger's, walkers, and people watchers love this stretch of sidewalk. It's where the beautiful people stroll, rollerblade, and run and the dolphins frolic! Pach's Diner at Bay to... More

Longest uninterrupted sidewalk in the world is enough to make me visit, even though I live here. It's a hidden gem, that is becoming less hidden every year. I work out there, usually rollerblading, but you can easily run, walk, bike ride, take a pet, and more! Awesome view of the bay! Connects to a trail around Davis Island if... More

I lived one block of Baysore in the late 70's and used to remember the terrible stench at low tide as well all the debris and garbage that was exposed as the tide went out. That bay was essentially dead. The transformation over the years has been tremendous and it has become a hub of activity with walkers, joggers, roller... More

The city should clean the wall and make parking for people that want to drive to the area and walk along the water front. There used to be a small parking area at Bayshore and Bay to Bay but they closed it to build more apartments.

A beautiful area on both sides. Has the bay which is a great place for a walk. Houses on the other side are awe inspiring. Rumor has it this is the longest non broken up sidewalk in the world. You can often see marine life when walking. Of course people watching is good also. Has a actual beam in the... More

If you want to run or bike, you can do that.. If you just want to drive or park and take pictures, you can do that... Bayshore BLVD is a beautiful stretch that has many activities throughout the year.. A must visit if you are in Tampa
