Is your moving trailer rental heading to beautiful and balmy Tampa? Located on Florida's west coast on Tampa Bay by the Gulf of Mexico, you'll find Tampa about 200 miles northwest of Miami. The city's population is about 350,000 (about 4.3 million people in the metropolitan area). And with its agreeable year-round climate and plentiful outdoor activities, it's easy to see why Forbes once recognized Tampa as one of the best outdoor cities in the nation.
Tampa is a modern, multicultural city as well as one of North America's busiest commercial ports. And it can trace its history back to the early 1500s, when the Spanish first arrived to explore the area. Major settlement didn't begin until after the United States established Fort Brooke 1824. About 30 years later, Tampa was incorporated as a town. The area grew rapidly in the late 1800s after the discovery of phosphates (for fertilizer), the arrival of the railroads and the introduction of the cigar industry. Tampa eventually became known as The Cigar Capital of the World, which explains its current nickname: Cigar City.
Tampa is blessed with a variety of remarkable neighborhoods that range from historic to contemporary in character. Favorites include Ybor City, Harbour Island, New Tampa, Channelside, Hyde Park, SoHo and Seminole Heights. Other great places to live and visit include Riverside Heights, Sunset Park, Beach Park, Bayonet Point, Carrollwood and South Tampa.
Since Tampa residents love to get outdoors when they can, the city operates 178 parks covering a total of 3,500 acres. Facilities include 60 miles of trails, two marinas, 79 playgrounds and 14 swimming pools. Favorite locations include Curtis Hixon Park, Picnic Island Park, Centennial Park, Al Lopez Park, Ballast Point Park and the Davis Islands Seaplane Basin.
Looking for more to see and do in Tampa? Popular attractions that you need to see (or see at least one more time if you're moving away from Tampa) include the Museum of Science & Industry, Lowry Park Zoo, the Florida Aquarium, the Tampa Bay History Center, Lettuce Lake Park and the Tampa Electric Manatee Viewing Center. Other must-sees include Bayshore Boulevard, the Henry B. Plant Museum, the Glazer Children's Museum, the Tampa Museum of Art and the American Victory Mariners Memorial & Museum Ship.
