I lived in South Tampa for years-but was never sure why people drove up the real estate prices in this area. The main reason is EVERYTHING is close to you-the airport-downtown-publix-trader joe's etc.

This is my favorite place in Tampa to live. Been here for mot of my life and would never consider moving. All the ranch style houses are rapidly giving way to "McMansions". No more single story homes. Plenty of thing to do in this area....More
