All the best restaurants in Tampa are in this area. The Hyde Park shopping is still nice, but is still in need of more stores.

They have a few nice spots/bars like the PressBox for ex. However there is also the McDill Military base. It' s a nice neighborhood, but not too much to do.

I'm not sure what everyone rants about. The bars in this part of town are lame. The people are very showy, without really anything to show. Anyone of them would be chewed up and spit out in an actual city. The people out on the beach are way more relaxed and a lot less plastic. Skip SoHo and head to... More

Great restaurants and bars line South Howard. The world famous Berns steakhouse is here with a NEW Epicurean Hotel right across the street. 15 minutes from airport and 10 minutes to downtown, walk to beautiful Bayshore Blvd 4 mile sidewalk on the bay. Head to Hyde Park for shopping and restaurants. 15 minutes from airport, 5 minutes to downtown.

South Tampa has the best selection of restaurants and bars in Tampa. Just a few minutes from downtown. The epicenter is Howard Avenue with wall to wall restaurants and bars.

South Tampa is beautiful. Hyde Park Village is a great place for dining and walking around. Streets full of trees and a very quiet neighborhood. Beautiful houses everywhere that you look at. it's very close to downtown Tampa and to the airport. It's a pity that it's such an expensive area to live in.
