My family and I relocated to Tampa a few years ago from the Northeast, and I love living in Tampa! Here is a list of 10 reasons why I think living in the Tampa Bay area is awesome!
1. The Weather
Sunshine and summer temperatures year-round are pretty awesome. The weather in Tampa Bay is perfect, most days/nights you can go out for a walk or play outdoors with your little one. It’s great for all kinds of activities and sports, especially water activities.
2. The Beaches
From Siesta Keys to Clearwater, Tampa Bay has some of the best beaches. Siesta Keys white sand beaches are an attractive tourist destination. The beaches along St. Petersburg and Clearwater are spectacular, they are an easy drive from the Tampa Bay area and have lots of fun activities and restaurants for the whole family.
3. The Art & Culture
From the children’s museum to the Dali, there is something for museum-goers of all ages. Not to mention the local aquariums and historic areas throughout the Tampa Bay area . The Lowry Zoo and Big Cat Rescue is great for little ones and Busch Gardens for your (not so little) little ones!
4. The Gasparilla Festivities
Music, parades, art festival, bead necklaces, and oh ya a Pirate invasion! What’s not to love about Gasparilla.
5. The Food
Tampa Bay has some great restaurants whether you are looking for a traditional restaurant, food truck or farm-to-table inspired cuisine. Tampa has it all!
6. The Festivals
Hands down, the Tampa Bay is full of festivals! Whether its music, food, or renaissance you fancy, there is always a festival going on somewhere around the Bay.
7. The Shopping
From International Plaza to local boutiques Tampa Bay has a great range of shopping options.
8. The Trails
I love all the trails around Tampa Bay, its a quick way to reconnect by walking / running / biking on the Upper Bay Tampa Trail, the Causeway , or along the Riverwalk.
9. The Travel
Tampa Bay is just a hop, jump and skip away from so many destinations. With one of the best airports and close by cruise ports, its easy to get away. Not to mention all the great places in driving distance!
10. The Sports
Whether its football, hockey or baseball Tampa’s got a team for you. Tampa Bay is home to three major teams – Tampa Bay Lightning, Buccaneers, and Rays. Don’t forget the spring training games!
Living in Tampa Bay is truly amazing!
