Tampa Bay (aka Champa Bay) is about more than just sports. Tampa, St. Petersburg, and surrounding communities have become a beacon for those seeking a slice of city life — with a view. The downtowns are booming, with world-class arts scenes and James Beard award-winning restaurants, while in eclectic neighborhoods like Ybor City, lovingly restored bungalows are steps away from buzzy nightlife. Add the watersports and fabled resorts of the Gulf Coast, and it’s no wonder that pirates lay siege to Tampa every January during the notorious Gasparilla “Invasion” — everyone wants to live here!
