“Great place to live and place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I love the SOHO area, and the South Tampa area in general. Close to Bayshore Boulevard for walking, running, skating, bicycling, exercising - fabulous restaurants everywhere you look, and some great nightlife too - something for everyone and every taste

“Lucky to Live here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

We are lucky to live here and play here. Winding through the side streets you will find several places to stop and check out. Drive down Bayshore Blvd, check out Davis and Harbor Island, Westshore Blvd, S. MacDill Avenue, Hyde Park (Kate jackson Park) and Bay to Bay Blvd. These areas have the best stops in town. You can reference urban spoon for the best eats. Great bar hopping on Howard Avenue if that is your thing. South Tampa is the best collection of local/ independent businesses too.

“Best of Tampa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

South of Howard, there is Bayshore Blvd with great water views and interesting houses all which lead to a Taste of Boston by the pier with great food and view in a very casual setting. If shopping and resturants are your thing head to Hyde Park and get both in Tampa's small version of St. Armand's Circle or just travel around checking out the neighborhoods around Hyde Park

“The Best Place to Live in the US”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

South Tampa has the best of everything! It is like a small town where you can easily get around and usually run into someone you know. Yet, it is a couple of minutes away from the big city of Tampa with all it has to offer in jobs and entertainment. Additionally, you are in the heart of the huge metropolis of Tampa Bay with St. Pete, Clearwater, Brandon, Lakeland even Orlando all within an easy drive to whatever your pleasure…the best beaches, parks, concerts, museums and amusement parks! South Tampa has a great selection of private and public schools and we always feel like we are on vacation with the tropical foliage or just going down gorgeous Bayshore Blvd.!
