First time to Tampa and am loving it!! Downtown Tampa is clean and well lit. Very tourist friendly and lots to do. The views are fantastic. Even upscale restaurants accommodating of tourists in traveling clothes to keep cool.

I've lived here my whole life. It didn't used to be so ridiculously snobby. It used to much more pleasant as far as the people are concerned. There are a lot of $30,000 Millionaires (people trying too hard to be something they are not..like living in studio apartments/dumps and driving a BMW or Mercedes they can't afford). The upside is that everything you could possibly want is located in a small radius. It's very convenient. I live near 3 Publix Supermarkets, 3 Starbucks, 15 gas stations, 10 gyms, blocks from Bayshore Blvd. where I run at night, etc. The list goes on and on. You don't have to drive far to get whatever it is that you want. The restaurants are outstanding and there are lots of fun bars in Hyde Park and some scattered throughout South Tampa. Home taxes are expensive, most roads flood so life is much better if you have an SUV or truck and some people act very snooty, but you can't beat the sunsets on Bayshore or the overall beautiful & tropical surroundings. It's a great place to live in sunny Florida.

South Tampa has the very best restaurants Tampa has to offer.
Bern's Steak House and Caffee Paridiso along with other fabulous eating and drinking options.

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!

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!
