Sports Swim Wear

by funnybeee

Hi everybody,

I am currently visiting downtown Tampa and I am looking for a store where I can buy some sports swim wear. I saw in some Tampa pages that the 2 biggest malls are near the airport but a mall doesn't necessarily hold a store that sells sports swim wear as I found out the hard way...

If any of you could show me the way I would be very grateful...
Greetings from FunnyBeee

ps: where can a gal find some juicy crab legs around the downtown Tampa area?
I know where to go for a mean steak, Bern's if I am not mistaken, but I haven't got a hook up for the crab legs yet.

Check the internet to locate a Quiksilver factory outlet store. It active swim wear for the younger generation or for those who feel young.

Pick up a Weekly Planet free news/entertainment newspaper. They're are lots of ads for that kind of stuff in there.

ALso, it's a (very) sad fact that for a city on the water, Tampa has very few good seafood restaurants. Lots of places have seafood on the menu, but it's not their primary focus. For good crab legs in a (very) no-frills environment, you might check out Monstah Lobstah on Bay to Bay in South Tampa.

There are several good seafood restaurants near the beaches, tho, especially in the St. Pete beach area...

PS Berns is overrated, imo.

Wasserball: thanks for pointing out the Brand name Quicksilver to me! Indeed pretty cool stuff AND sturdy. Exactly what I am looking for.

ZenGator: Weekly Planet it is then. I also heard I might want to try Sports Authority.

Bern's overrated? I believe you in a hartbeat. Also heard that you have to dress up to have dinner over there and I ain't down with that.

Monstah Lobstah, I already like that name!

This is my first time in Florida ever!
Thanks for the information, really appreciate it,

Thanks for letting me know how the dresscode is now at Bern's, Donna.

My husband and some friends were planning to go and they were all talking about dressing up, but I will notify them that they don't have to go in their suits.

BTW love your flower pics :)
Take care,

Travel Tips for Tampa

Where to live in Tampa

by Ewingjr98

Where you will work obviously will have a big impact on where you will live. If your job is in Tampa, you might consider living in South Tampa, particularly in Plant High School District (around Palma Ciea/Virginia Park are some of the best areas). This is one of the top high schools in the state. The neighborhoods are older and well established, with most houses built in the 1920s through 1950s, and many new houses constructed in the last decade. There are several pockets of good restaurants in this area, particularly Hyde Park/South Howard, which is the trendiest part of Tampa. This area also has low crime, especially if you live a few blocks from the big roads like Gandy, Henderson and Dale Mabry. Housing in this area is probably the most expensive in the Tampa area, because of the area's many positive attributes.

Many people choose in the suburbs around Westchase to the northwest or Brandon to the east. The draw here is larger houses, more land, and lower prices, but the negatives are long commutes and little to do. Furthermore, with the housing market downturn, may of these areas have high rates of foreclosure and empty houses.

Seminole Heights is another historic area with lots of old bungalows and a nice neighborhood feel. This is one of Tampa's revitalizing neighborhoods, and still relatively affordable.

Davis Islands is comfortable with a unique, small town-like main street area, but this is also the lowest elevation around, and would likely flood in even a small hurricane.

Depending on where you will work, the beach towns might be an option. The commute from Indian Rocks Beach to downtown Tampa is around 45 minutes, sometimes worse with tourist beach traffic or rush hour.

Areas to generally avoid, particularly if you have young kids, are the Ybor City area and some of the areas around the University of South Florida (Fowler Ave area). These are the highest crime areas of Tampa.

Charter Fishing

by Ewingjr98

Florida is sometimes called the fishing capital of the world, due to the year-round seasonal weather and its great fishing habitat in 7,700 lakes, 10,550 miles of rivers and 2,276 miles of shoreline. Florida is said to have twice as many fishermen as golfers in a state known for its golfing. In fact, Florida ranks first among the 50 states in the total number of fishermen with 2.77 million people engaged in the sport.

Tampa Bay is one of the finest places to fish in Florida. Here you have freshwater fishing in local rivers, shoreline fishing from numerous bridges and piers, and saltwater fishing in the bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Pier 60

by tampa_shawn

A nice day trip or stop

Has some great shopping (mostly touristy but still fun) and restaurants.

Especially fun around sun-set (2 hours before till 2 hours after), where like in Key West, their is a nightly festival with a variety of street performers including jugglers & magicians

Intersection of Causeway and Gulf Blvd., Pier 60 Park is beautiful - a crescent of fine, powdery white sand that runs from the pass north for 1.3 miles. .

Botanical Gardens at University of South Florida

by tampa_shawn

I haven't been here in awhile, but it is a nice thing to do on a slow day. I've volunteered here several times doing manual labor to help maintain the gardens

Has orchids, begonias, mallows, bromeliads, gingers, ferns, aroids, fruit trees, palms, cycads, carnivorous plants, butterfly garden, herb and scent gardens, and much more. The Gardens have a living collection of over 3,000 taxa of plants and natural habitats that emphasize the rich botanical diversity of Tampa. You may also see animal and insect species, from gopher tortoises to butterflies to over 60 species of birds.

Volunteer Orientations are held the 4th Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m.
Also has workshops - see the website (which also has gardening tips)
