August 2008 - The Culture of South Tampa

Tampa is a great city with a rich culture and a wealth of activities to do and places to see. Whether you are single or have a family there is always something to do in the Tampa Bay Area. For singles living in South Tampa’s apartments there are many night clubs, restaurants, gyms and coffee shops just around the corner to meet new people and enjoy the great Florida weather. Ybor City is another place where you can find a great restaurant to dine in or a night club to dance all your worries away. Ybor is known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter where the smell of Cuban coffee in the morning to the rhythmic music played on the streets at night is bound to tempt anyone’s senses. According to the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce, “The City” is reborn with historic buildings renovated into modern offices for creative businesses such as advertising, architecture, interior design, community planning, engineering services, technology transfer and media production. Every month new low-rise, residential condos are springing-up revitalizing the Old Ybor Historic Neighborhood.”
