What locals are saying

Tampa is Florida’s third most populous city (335,709 people, per the 2010 Census), and it gets top billing when it comes to Tampa Bay, the area encompassing the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. While some cities could get all cocky and stuff with having a bay area named after them, Tampa remains humble. Even with the allure of no state income taxes, warm weather, three pro sports teams, and the beautiful Gulf Coast, Tampa still doesn’t go around bragging about itself. Of course, this impressive display of humility could have more to do with the fact that cities cannot actually speak, but we’re not here to speculate as to why. Let’s find you a place to call home, shall we?

The recession and housing market collapse of the late 2000s undeniably smacked Tampa hard
