Welcome to South Tampa

South Tampa is easily one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the state of Florida. Close to downtown Tampa, it has seen recent exponential growth. Longtime locals have shifted their residence from the suburbs to South Tampa and encouraged friends and family to relocate as well. 

Plant High School, one of Florida’s top-rated public high schools, is a big draw for families to this area. Plus, located only thirty to forty-five minutes from beautiful Gulf Coast beaches, spending time relaxing on the sand overlooking the Gulf of Mexico is an everyday opportunity. 

However, homes in South Tampa are possibly the area’s biggest allure. Single-family homes make up more than half of South Tampa’s real estate, with all of them equipped with impressive square footage and beautiful yards to match the wonderful Florida weather. 

You will find various styles, ranging from large ranch styles to multi-story mansions. Traditional Spanish-inspired homes in natural colors with stunning features are interspersed with historic homes offering consistent charm with traditional Southern features like columns, wrap-around porches, and dark-colored shutters. Plus, there are newly built homes boasting modern designs with massive windows, patios, and glass doors that provide natural lighting.

What to Love

  • Relaxed and lively way of life
  • Proximity to downtown Tampa
  • Balmy breezes coming off the surrounding bays
  • Beach access with just a short drive
  • Different architectural styles of homes 
  • Highly praised local schools

Local Lifestyle

A great thing about living in South Tampa is that there’s no limit to the ways you can spend your days. Its customizable feel adds a sense of carefree luxury to surrounding neighborhoods. Nearby nightlife is active, but so are the plentiful daytime events. Locals gather year-round for first-rate festivals, concerts, and events. Outdoor activities are popular here in South Tamps!

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

South Tampa is a paradise for those that love going out on the town. Visiting local landmarks like the nearby Armature Works or Hyde Park Village will lend a day full of shopping at luxury retailers or dining at restaurants with amazing food … and even better cocktails.

MacDill Avenue houses upscale stores, restaurants, and local hangouts where everybody knows your name. Tampa is becoming a foodie town, and South Tampa is at the heart of it all! Edison, Osteria Natalina, On Swann, Olivia, SoHo Sushi, and Datz are just a few of the more popular restaurants.

Things to Do

Sports and exercise fanatics thrive in South Tampa. One of the best ways to get your steps in for the day is by jogging down Bayshore Boulevard — home of the longest continuous sidewalk in the world. For a peaceful day spent in Mother Nature, visit local parks like Ballast Point or Picnic Island to simply relax, enjoy a picnic lunch, or read a book.

It's no wonder Tampa is being called “Champa Bay.” Hockey fans frequent Amalie Arena (a 10-minute drive from South Tampa) to watch the Stanley Cup-winning Tampa Bay Lightning on the ice. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, two-time Super Bowl champions, play at Raymond James stadium, which is located only 20 minutes away. And let’s not forget the Tampa Bay Rays for baseball fanatics. 

Amalie Arena also stands as an all-purpose venue, housing concerts, comedians, and other events in addition to sports.
