There is this one part of South Tampa called Ybor City that is interesting; it's both artsy and trendy, and some of the buildings have a french quarter decor. Bayshore is kind of relaxed; there are a lot of mansions located right at the bay, with places to walk and ride bicycles.

Great safe neighborhood. I've been living in South Tampa since 1991 and I've never been tempted to move to any other part of town. Nice and quiet, family friendly.

This is THE area to live and play in Tampa! While the real beaches are over in St. Pete and Clearwater, South Tampa is the happening area for everything else!

I did not know that Florida or anything about it was really Southern. I then visited Tampa, which proved me wrong! The Southern accent was detected first when I had to ask a total stranger for directions to a place to get good seafood. I was met with, "How are y'all?" by a person walking down a sidwalk with Live... More

All the best restaurants in Tampa are in this area. The Hyde Park shopping is still nice, but is still in need of more stores.

This area has a vibrant night lofe with numerous pubs, bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as the Epicurian Hotel, built and owned by the owners of Byrnes Steakhouse. Not only is the area full of young and old alike, but the owners of the bars and pubs give back generously to the community in donations and fund raisers. It... More

They have a few nice spots/bars like the PressBox for ex. However there is also the McDill Military base. It' s a nice neighborhood, but not too much to do.
