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.

City in Florida, located gulf coast central area. Geographic highlight is the wide bay flowing out to the Gulf of Mexico. Is the major urban area of a large metro region known as Tampa Bay (which includes neighboring St. Petersburg and Clearwater). Population is a mix of mostly first/second generation transplants from the north during the Florida population growth of the 1970s and 80s, and Cubans and other Caribbean exile communities. Is best known as the home of long-suffering (until recently, when they won the Super Bowl) NFL team Buccaneers, and one of the first successful pro hockey teams south of Philadelphia in years. The bay metro area is also a prominent baseball Spring Training locale and home of a really weak pro baseball team.
Local economy relies mostly on tourism/beaches, with shipping/importing/exporting, finance, and some aerospace industries.
Is considered a middling metro area compared to Florida's major metro Miami/Dade-Ft.Lauderdale-Palm Beach, and not as favorite a tourist attraction as Orlando. However, the beaches are great, the ambience (sp?) is pleasant, and traffic throughout Florida sucks anyway so just live with it, okay?
Metro area is also birthplace of the Hooters restaurant franchise.
Tampa. Home of the lukewarm buffalo wings and hot waitresses.
