Tampa's Downtown

Tampa Heights

Tampa Heights

While the story of Tampa Heights began in the 1880’s as Tampa’s first suburb, this neighborhood continues to tell its own story today. Tampa Heights has since progressed to become a suburban utopia with beautifully lined roads, parks, coffee shops, breweries, and restaurants. What makes Tampa Heights special in addition to its historic significance, is that it truly carries the essence of a community. While other districts have skyscrapers and high-rise apartments, Tampa Heights has a more intimate and “homey” feel to it that makes the neighborhood a great place to live, work, and play.
