East Suburbs

The east suburbs of the Tampa area are asked about very frequently. The areas in the east suburbs that are loves requested our Brandon, Riverview, and Fish Hawk. The east side of Tampa is one of the directions that the city can still grow. Obviously, water is surrounding the South and the West sides so the city can only go north or east. The east suburbs have easy access to downtown Tampa, but the access will be filled with commuters during typical commute times. This area is close to some water but has a longer drive to gulf beaches.

The east suburbs also can boast about being closer to Disney compared to some of the other areas. These towns have easy access to all the typical amenities like shopping and dining, and even pretty easy access two dining in downtown Tampa.
