What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Tampa

It is in a very central location that is super close to many stores and great eats. Would also say it is very scenic considering the town is surrounded by water in some ways.

it's OLD school, in the sense that mostly they are older folks sitting on their porch. Everyone is very friendly. We have Roosters and Chickens walking around the neighborhood. We even have some little piggies (yes, in the city). We normally stay indoors due to Covid but before that; We would go to the River, the Riverwalk and the community pools.

There is a lake in the middle. We enjoy the Cuban bakeries on the corner. We go to Publix and a Thai restaurant nearby

The neighhood is very active and friendly. lots to do on weekends at the park for the kids and penty of places to eat and shop at

It's not a good place to hang around.anybd yucky haystack eu highly time of night.crime is to high.you might get shoot

There is nothing at all. There are no restaurants close by, nor bars or anything. My friends and I have to go outside out of town to find anything notable for us to do, like Downtow.

Known for its beauty and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa boasts a vibrant downtown area with excellent museums, concerts, dining, events and much more. Living in Tampa can mean lazy weekends on the beach, great shopping or outdoor adventures.

Spend as much or as little time outdoors thanks to the over 170 city parks and easy access to the water.

The Best Neighborhoods to Find Apartments for Rent in Tampa

Palm trees and beach living are easy to find in Tampa. Whether you find a home close to the water or a little inland, the beauty of the Florida outdoors is always close at hand. Make sure to check out these neighborhoods while looking for apartments for rent in Tampa.

  • Downtown: Set beside the Hillsborough River, Downtown Tampa exploration should start with the Tampa Riverwalk. It's not only beautiful, but there's plenty to do. You'll get a great sampling of the history, art and businesses in this part of town with one stroll. When not on the river, the wide sidewalks, green spaces, great restaurants and shops make this a lively area and accessible place to live.
  • Hyde Park: Not far from Downtown, Hyde Park is a cute and historic neighborhood full of tree-lined streets. Head into the Village for upscale shopping and dining, or spend time relaxing in a coffee shop or local park. All the activity here makes it an appealing place for young professionals to call home.

Fun Things to Do in Tampa

Tampa may seem like a lazy beach town, but there is no shortage of activities around here. You'll find opportunities that take advantage of the wonderful weather as well as plenty of family-friendly locations. It's easy to keep busy even by the beach.

  • Looking for a thrill? Give Busch Gardens Tampa a try. Start with the twists and turns of the rollercoasters before moving on to the more than 200 animals that call this park home. You can even take a safari tour to get up close to wildlife.
  • Another family-friendly location, Adventure Island, creates a perfect day of fun. This 30-acre water park is across the street from Busch Gardens and features water slides, pools, a lazy river, other attractions and more.
  • Even in the warm climate of Tampa, you may want to feel a little chill. If that's the case, it's time for some hockey. Head to Amalie Arena to cheer on the Tampa Bay Lightning as they take to the ice.
  • With 15 acres of developed gardens and a natural greenbelt, the USF Botanical Gardens are a sight to see. Located directly on campus at the University of South Florida, you can spend the day among over 3,000 plants, animals and natural habitats.
  • Get up close to the sealife living right outside in the ocean. Make a visit to The Florida Aquarium for access to 9,000 animals within the facility. Here you'll see moon jellies, otters and stingrays, to name a few animals at the aquarium. You can even take a wild dolphin cruise for a little something extra.
  • Emphasizing endangered, threatened or vulnerable species, Lowry Park Zoo puts a magnifying glass on animals living in climates similar to Tampa. Park areas are broken down by locations and feature animals from Asia, Africa, Australia and Florida. If you love animals, this zoo is one of the most popular to visit in the southeast.
  • A beautifully wooded space, New Tampa Nature Park is more than hiking and biking trails. Thrill-seekers also have the ability to ride a zip line or go through a ropes course while they're here at this park.
  • Even though beaches are close in Tampa, you may find yourself needing something a little more exciting for your family. Enter Tampa Waterworks. With its fantastic splash pad, picnic areas and playground, you'll keep the kids satisfied for hours. There's a dog park for your furry friend and a chill, riverfront green space for you.
  • Containing plenty of sand, Picnic Island Park is another family-friendly, outdoor space. Here kids can play in the sandy playground and beach while you set up a picnic. There are also volleyball courts and a disc golf course. A special dog beach area means even your pup can play.

Getaways from Tampa

While Tampa has plenty to offer when it comes to activities, if you want something a little bigger, theme parks like Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando are just 70 miles away.
