South Tampa

South Tampa is where everyone in Tampa wishes they could live. But it only works for a certain situation.

South Tampa is very close to a lot of things in the city. Including the airport, downtown, and Hyde Park, and is surrounded by water. You don’t have to go far in South Tampa to have really good food. The area known as Soho or South Howard Ave. Is filled with some of the city’s best restaurants and nightlife. South Tampa is also home to Hyde Park Village, a boutique style outdoor shopping mall with some of the highest end stores in the whole Tampa area.

This area is old. As old as Tampa itself, some of the roads are wide enough for horse drawn carriages to turn around. Because of this, there are a lot of old houses in South Tampa. Some of these have been beautifully restored and others are reaching a point of needing restoration. Just like the rest of the Tampa area, South Tampa saw a boom in the 60s and 70s. Because of that, there are a lot of houses from that era as well. A lot of properties, especially condos, have great views of the water from South Tampa. South Tampa is on a peninsula surrounded by the Tampa Bay.
