What do you like about Tampa?Tampa is a varied place where the oddest relationships can take place.
You may find yourself talking about Dali with a redneck, or smoking grass with a Baptist homosexual.It's that kind of "varied".
It is easy to get along with differant types here as long as you are yourself and tolerant of different lifestyles; by that I mean real different.
What do you dislike about Tampa?At times there can be a definite lack of control around here.
What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? I like Ybor. In the daytime it is a nice little place to eat.
The downtown area is particularly nice around Kennedy Annie St., there is a place next to the Henry B. Plant Fine Arts museum affectionately refered to as Trip Park that I have fond memories of.
How expensive is it?moderantly so.
Is it safe? Sometimes.
How is the weather?Beautiful beyond words.
As long as you like it hot.
Additional thoughts? Tampa is a nice place to check out if your in the area, but can be restrictive as hell to someone who is from a bigger city.

Tampa strikes me as New Orleans Part 2-a few wealthy people (from other cities) and a boatload of low wage jobs built around tourism, call centers, contract manufacturing, and awful schools. Tampa is a fun place if you are 1) single, 2) are not real ambitious about you career (maybe you can run that call center someday!), 3) like to party. It is not family friendly unless you are wealthy enough to afford one of the few good private schools in the area or lucky enough to get into a magnet school. Despite a great tax system, value-added businesses avoid Floritucky like the plague as the labor force sucks. No biotech, no real tech, very little advertising, no or little money mgmt (lots of sleazeball brokers). By the way, Tampa shouldn't have a city flag but a brass pole. Strip city. Neck it up!
