Great restaurants and bars line South Howard. The world famous Berns steakhouse is here with a NEW Epicurean Hotel right across the street. 15 minutes from airport and 10 minutes to downtown, walk to beautiful Bayshore Blvd 4 mile sidewalk on the bay. Head to Hyde Park for shopping and restaurants. 15 minutes from airport, 5 minutes to downtown.

South Tampa has the best selection of restaurants and bars in Tampa. Just a few minutes from downtown. The epicenter is Howard Avenue with wall to wall restaurants and bars.

South Tampa is beautiful. Hyde Park Village is a great place for dining and walking around. Streets full of trees and a very quiet neighborhood. Beautiful houses everywhere that you look at. it's very close to downtown Tampa and to the airport. It's a pity that it's such an expensive area to live in.

I love the fact that we went to Hyde Park Village and ate a FANTASTIC meal at Piquant. We could shop and then watched a movie at the Cinebistro. Love it there, everything is in walking distance.

The streets are very rough and desperately need to be replaced. Every year they come out and patch holes, but it leaves the streets rough. They should replace the whole streets not just fill in a hole.

I've lived in South Tampa for 7 years, and South West Shore Blvd. is a great combination of lovely homes and 5-minute access to most any shopping, restaurant, or waterfront view. Just 10 minutes from the airport or downtown, too. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!

South Tampa boasts families who have been in Tampa for several generations mixed in with new comers. The New Leaf Produce market on Westshore Blvd offers fresh, local produce and Cuban bread. Dining is exceptional and encompasses a variety of international options, chains, and fast food. Bayshore Boulevard is the best place to bike, run, or walk--even though one must... More

South Tampa is the epicenter of Tampa. Tree lined oak filled neighborhoods with sidewalks abound here. What's best about this place is the eclectic mix of restaurants, bars and shops. You will find ground zero to be at Howard and Swann, that's pretty much the heart of the place and you are not to far from the longest sidewalk (continuous... More
