“Best part of Tampa”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Best Homes, best area by far! Good Restaurants down Howard Avenue all the way thru Palma Cia The Bar scene is super busy on weekends so for that younger crowd its the happening place to be! Easy to hail a Taxi but the traffic and parking situation are difficult on the weekends!

“AWESOME”

We live in Palma Ceia and adore it. No Strip Malls - everything is unique here. So proud my little ones are going to school here and growing up here. Certain ambience!

“Favorite part of Tampa! Good nightlife and great food too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

South Tampa consists of some great restaurants such as Bella's, Bern's, Ceviche, and The Rack just to name a few. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and bars within walking distance. I recently stayed at the Hyde Park Hotel where I got engaged, so spent 2 wonderful days walking around South Tampa with my love :) The hotel is the perfect location if you want to be able to walk to many of the establishments on Howard Ave. Some of the best bars are McDinton's, World of Beer, The Rack, and more. Old Hyde Park Village is right there as well, which is where you can find some great shopping or a perfect glass of wine at the Wine Exchange. Wander around and see what you find!
