Situated on the west coast of Florida, the city of Tampa is a hotbed of culture, serving as the home base of the Spanish explorers during the 16th century. Although there were no permanent European settlements until 1824, when Andrew Jackson secured the area for the United States government, the Seminole Indians have been historically prevalent in the surrounding areas throughout the ages. Since the 20th century, the Tampa Bay area has experienced exponential growth, especially when immigrants from the Caribbean inhabited the land. Serving as one of Florida's largest cities, Tampa has millions of residents of various age groups with a wide assortment of cultural backgrounds.
This period of growth has naturally made Tampa a prominent city when it comes to professional sports. The NFL, NHL and Major League Baseball all have a strong presence in this Florida coastal area, which fosters teams like the NFL's Buccaneers, the NHL's Lightning and MLB’s Rays. The Buccaneers, who have had much success recently, play at the Raymond James Stadium, which is a great place for tailgaters from all over the country. Those who love basketball too much to miss a game can also take comfort in knowing that Orlando is merely an hour and a half driving distance from Tampa, providing plenty of opportunities for NBA fans to experience a Magic game. Soccer fans can also have their fair share of fun in this area, which is home to the Rowdies of the North American Soccer League. College athletics are also prominent in the Tampa Bay region, as the University of South Florida and the University of Tampa both have a broad selection of sports to choose from.
Those who would rather relax under the comfort of the Florida sun will surely appreciate the fact that Tampa is home to over 165 parks and beaches, which include the suburban areas that surround the city. One popular destination, for example, is the Lowry Park Zoo, which features over 2000 animals, interactive exhibits, rides and educational shows. Anyone in the family, including the children, will surely enjoy Tampa Bay's Busch Gardens, which is an African-themed amusement park that features numerous rides and African wildlife species. Visitors can also have a frivolous splash of fun and Adventure Island, which has many water rides, live entertainment and dining.
Those who think that the Tampa Bay area is fit for only senior citizens should reevaluate their assumptions and see the city for what it really is - an exciting beachside paradise that the entire family can thoroughly enjoy.
