Similar to Atlanta but not as many skyscrapers and very spread out. The club areas are actually suburbs, Ybor City and Channelside. The area surrounding University Of South Florida is where you can get your car shot up, raped or killed.

The best city in Florida; home of some of the chicos y chicas mas calientes in the world! Rated the 9th most dangerous city in the United States, due in large part to the area surrounding the University of South Florida, where crime rates are very high.

There are separate areas of Tampa:
-NORTH TAMPA is primarily lower-middle class Caucasians and Mexican-Americans.
-SOUTH TAMPA is primarily upper class Caucasians.
-INTERBAY, which is the area south of Gandy Boulevard, is primarily African-American and is another haven for crime.
-UNIVERSITY WEST, also known as SUITCASE CITY by the locals, is primarily African-American and Latino, and is the area that has brought Tampa to the #9 slot on the list of Most Dangerous Cities in the USA.
-WEST TAMPA, which includes the areas of BON AIR and COURIER CITY, is a primarily Latino area where not much goes on.
-CARROLLWOOD is a neighborhood which is technically in North Tampa, but it is home to the upper-middle class "yuppies".
-TAMPA PALMS is an area out in the middle of nowhere, almost to the Pasco County line, where a lot of rich people live because they want to be as far as possible away from Tampa because they don't want their precious children to be exposed to real life.
Tampa is the best city in the world.

Tampa is a city full of fakes in Central Florida. A place that tries to act progressive and on the move, but in reality is just a swamp once run by the KKK who segregated its African American population away from whites (read your history books about the lynchings, Morrisons, Lowry park, the white-only beaches across the bridge. Tampa is constantly holding its breath, praying you don't find out its truth. The truth is a bunch of future Confederates built the town next to a military fort, the town started out as a cotton port for cotton grown in the Eastern part of the County and Central Florida. When the slaves were set free and cotton went bust, they turned to citrus. Then these citrus barons, cattle kings and cotton broker's kids proceeded to bring Cubans to town to roll cigars, segregated them in a place called Ybor City and treated them like blacks along with the other "Latins" who also came for the cigar industry in the late 1800s. Then a few crackers partnered with some yanks to build ostentatious hotels and lay down railroads for rich Northerners to come visit. This all went bust, things stayed segregated and very Southern into the 1980s, but now the yankees, crackers and northerners are mixing like a soup with no name. Tampa tears down everything. Tampa has no idea who it is.
Tampa is gross.

A cesspool of bad drivers, seedy strip clubs, metal bands, old farts, ghetto wanna-be rich kids, and a college that breeds criminal activity. In the last 5 years, voted the second worst city for drivers, in the top ten in pedestrian injuries/deaths, 2nd in worst allergy related illness, 3rd most depressing city, 6th worst city for sports, 9th worst city of overall credit score boasting a 675, and the 7th most dangerous city in the united states. If you are coming from up north to move down here, turn around. We're already full.
