Best place to live in Tampa as far as we locals are concerned! A small town in a big city! Great schools, restaurants, health, shopping and more!

We have a friend who lives here in S Tampa. He invited us to stay, so we did. This was a very nice area. There were all sorts of restaurants, shops, and the Gulf was just in the backyard! There were multiple good fishing spots. I wanted to move here myself!

Way too much traffic for the amount of street. Too many apartments. After 22 years, moved to St Pete on the water. Much better way to live.

Horrible service! Rudest front desk person on the planet. I scheduled a 90-minute relaxation massage. It wasn't until after my massage was over and I went to pay did they tell me that they don't do 90 minute relaxation massages or that the price was going to be more than double what you would pay for a 1 hour massage!...

If you are hungry there are no shortages of restaurants here. They come in every price range and type of food and chain and family style. The shopping can be very expensive in this area with International Mall and West Shore Mall close. The penny wise locals may walk in these malls but will not usually buy here as the... More

South Tampa is great place to visit and/or live. Everything one needs is very close. You can be in downtown for an event in ten minutes the reverse is also true when you want to return home. A large number of the best restaurants in Tampa are in or very close to S. Tampa

I know there are many day spas. But I went to new one Saturday. I had a facial and love how smooth my face feels. I have only had a few facials and I think I might go every once in awhile to have it done. I do not know what all they did but my face feels so much... More

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.
