T is for Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay is my home. I grew up around here, went to college here and moved back here six years ago after an eighteen-year hiatus.  Tampa Bay is not actually a "city" but an estuary and the Tampa Bay area encompasses three counties.

Tampa Bay is home to many beautiful beaches, scenic drives, and lots of connecting bridges.  Tampa Bay has three professional sports teams - Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Tampa Bay Lightning.  Our family enjoys occasionally attending games at any of the three venues.

Tampa Bay has a port and a cruise ship terminal so you can see boats of all types.  Ybor City is a Latin historic district where we enjoy walking around and taking in the sights.  It is known for Cuban coffee and Cuban cigars.

There are lots of other things to do, so if you are ever in the area enjoy your time here!
