Relocating to Tampa area

by ACPlayer2

We are considering relocating to the Tampa area. We would appreciate any suggestions on "family" cities/suburbs in the surrounding Tampa area. Areas that were suggested to us were: the New Tampa area (Tampa Palms, Lutz), Brandon, Ruskin, and Apollo Beach. Please include pros's and con's and places to avoid. Thank you

RE: Relocating to Tampa area

by ZenGator

Not to avoid your question, but there have been lots and lots of questions along these lines in VT's Tampa forums, and some generated looots of discussion and good info.

Short answer: every neighborhood you mentioned is in suburban hell. I honestly wouldn't recommend any of them to anyone. There are lots of reasons why in the links below:

Travel Tips for Tampa

Pledge of Allegiance

by Ewingjr98

A
plaque located
along Bayshore
Avenue in South
Tampa, memorializes
the writer of the
Pledge of of
Allegiance,
and it reads:

I Pledge Allegiance...

Francis J. Bellamy, called "the most neglected
patriot in American history," wrote the immortal
words of the Pledge of Allegiance to the
American Flag, while an editor on the magazine
Youth Companion in 1892. He lived in Tampa
and work as advertising manager for Tampa
Electric Co. in his sunset years. He died here
August 28, 1931. The Tampa Tribune editorialized
"The Pledge of Allegiance of Francis Bellamy
will go on through centuries serving the
nation he loved."

Yankee Complex - Home of the GCL Yankees

by Ewingjr98

The Gulf Coast League Yankees are the New York York Yankees' Rookie League affiliate, and they play their home games at Yankee Complex in Tampa.

Yankees Complex is a small complex consisting of four ball fields. The GCL Yankees play their games on Field 1, just off Dale Mabry Drive. This field has just one set of wooden bleachers that might seat 200 on a good day... very small compared to the GCL Braves' field which seats some 10,000 people. During our visit to Yankee Complex to see the Yanks play the GCL Pirates, maybe 25 people showed up and the crowd was deathly silent. So quiet we could hear every word when Pirates' manager Tom Prince chewed out the second base umpire.

The Gulf Coast League was founded in 1964 and it consists of 16 teams in three divisions. Each team plays 60 games throughout the summer before a short postseason to determine the league champion.

Entry to most GCL games is free, there are no concessions, and the stands at the smaller fields offer no shade from the hot Florida summer sun.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium

by tampa_shawn

Not the typical Tampa tourist site that is in the neighboring town of Clearwater. This facilities rescues and rehabilitates ill and injured fish, mammals, birds, reptiles...

Costs $9 for adults, $6 for children 3 to 13 yrs - $ goes to supporting the animals

there is also an optional eco-boat tour that will let you see how the aquarium rescues local marine life and sea turtles

Open
9 to 5 Monday to Friday
9 to 4 Saturdays
11 to 4 Sunday

Once in Clearwater, take SR 60 west (Gulf to Bay Blvd.) until you reach Memorial Causeway, which leads to Clearwater Beach.

Proceed across the Causeway until you reach the traffic light at Island Way - which is Island Estates subdivision.

Turn right into Island Estates, then left at the single flashing light. You're now on Windward Passage heading west.

Casino

by priscila_h about Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino

I personally don't like casinos, but if you do, you can visit the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino here in Tampa! You can go during the day and dress casual, but if you go in the evening wear a nice night outfit.
