Bayshore Boulevard, running south from downtown Tampa beside the bay has the distinction of claiming to have the longest unbroken strech of sidewalk in the United States. It is used daily by runners, skateboarders, bicyclists and other exercise buffs.
The decorative ballustrade is also unbroken for the entire length of the sidewalk. Driving the street also gives a view across the bay to the Tampa Electric Generating Plant at Black Point and the huge mountain of waste produced by the phosphoric fertilizer production plant to the south.
When you reach the southern end of the sidewalk, continue south through the traffic light to the Ballast Point Fishing Dock and Park a few blocks further on for a chance to get out of the car and enjoy the view or the park playground.
Any time I have out of town visitors I take them for a visit to the Bayshore.
