Ride the historic streetcar! I enjoy taking the streetcar during lunch on weekdays to see all of the new and exciting developments happening around Tampa’s Downtown. I hop off to visit the Florida Aquarium or for a quick lunch in Water Street. On Saturdays, I love taking the streetcar from Downtown to Ybor City to watch Florida State football games at Gaspar’s and afterwards riding it back Downtown to The Sail to watch the sunset.
Come to a meeting. Join a committee. We look forward to hearing how we can help you shape Tampa’s future!
