“Drive the whole length of the road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

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.

“Beautiful and Scenic Tampa Landmark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

You must walk, bike, run, or drive on Bayshore Boulevard while you're in Tampa. Sunrise and sunset on the Bay is magnificent, as is the view of the most historic and unique homes in Tampa. Great spot for scenic photography!

“Creme De La Creme”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We drove Bayshore at least three times while in Tampa . Never mind the Bay..or those fabulous paths along it.....Look at the houses ! Some of the most beautiful privately owned homes in Florida. One more gorgeous and different than the other . Do yourself a favor while in Tampa and make this a highlight.

“Great for biking, running etc”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is where Tampa natives go to get their daily exercise in, lol. Bikers, runners, roller bladders, walkers all hit the trail here for their daily workout. You cant beat the gorgeous views of the bay!
