Tampa Named One Of The Greatest Places In The World By TIME
Tampa is just a few hours away from us here in SWFL and it’s just been named one of the greatest places in the world.
TIME puts out a list every year of the greatest places in the world. The list includes 50 different places including Barcelona, Budapest, Yosemite National Park and Mexico City just to name a few. And right here in Florida, Tampa made the list. We may take it for granted because it’s close to home, but I have to agree that Tampa is an amazing city.
I love going up to Tampa. In fact, I was just up there last weekend and went to Sparkman Wharf. If you haven’t been, I totally recommend it. It’s right on the water and has different shipping containers with food and drink. There’s also a beer garden right in the middle and they do different events there throughout the year as well. Between the many sports teams, Busch Gardens, the Florida Aquarium, and the Riverwalk that features another great foodie spot called Armature Works.
One of the things TIME mentioned is the opening of The Tampa EDITION which is the city’s first 5-star hotel and features a Michelin-star chef. Also noted is the city’s job market and how much there is to do outside of downtown. After all, between Clearwater Beach, St. Pete Beach, Pass-a-Grille and Madeira Beach (to name the big ones) are just a short drive away.
While these are just a few of the highlights of the city, there’s plenty more to explore. Whether you’re a thrill-seeker, a history buff, or a beach bum, Tampa has something for everyone.
