Renting a Cheap Apartment in Tampa

Tampa is one of Florida’s most happening cities. It’s currently experiencing an influx of young residents and significant population growth. Known as a great place to spend time outside, quality of life is high in Tampa, which is near the Gulf of Mexico and alongside the Hillsborough River. Economic generators include tourism, finance and telecommunications. Weather is frequently rainy but stays warm from April all the way through October. Tampa residents enjoy rooting for their hometown pro sports teams, the Buccaneers (football) and Rays (baseball). The annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival, a fake Pirate invasion of the city, is a popular tourist draw.
