With its access to some of the best beaches, incredible weather, professional sports teams, and fantastic nightlife, Tampa has been named the best city in the southeast according to TIME Magazine and a Top 10 city that people are moving to according to CNN Money.
From downtown Tampa to Clearwater, from St. Pete to Tarpon Springs, there’s always plenty to do and plenty to see in the larger Tampa Bay area. A vacation getaway to 16 million people each year, it’s ideally located on the coast of Florida’s beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
With the sun shining 361 days per year, Tampa is a great place to call “home.” The Channelside and Ybor City areas of downtown Tampa are both modern and historic, with a number of restaurants and shops for strolling the city streets during the day. At night, those same streets come alive, yielding to a buzzing nightlife.
With an average annual temperature of 72 degrees, we’re seldom cold. And the beaches are always available, with 26 miles of famous white-sand beaches. Local spots like Caladesi Island, Fort Desoto Park and Siesta Key are regularly listed among the top 10 beaches in America.
