  1. It’s the oldest! Suburb that is. Sitting just on2016-05-03 13.11.34 HDR-2e-mile north of downtown, building started in the 1883 and was home to doctors, judges, and lawyers. Learn more about Historic Tampa Heights here.
  2. It’s making a comeback! Tampa Heights is home to some of the trendiest businesses. Coast Bike Share , Award winning Urban Conga, and Rustic Steel Creations. The business creativity is contagious!

  3. It hits the spot! You can’t find a collection of eateries/drinkeries more diverse than these true local gems! You’ve got Ulele’s (Native-inspired food and spirits, part of the Gonzmart family) , Café Hey (Voted best coffee shop to eat at by Creative Loafing), Lee’s Grocery (known for stone-baked pizza and craft beer), and Hidden Springs Ale Works (try their Deja Moo, or game or yoga night) .
  4. They like it fresh! Not only do local restaurants rule the area but Tampa Heights has an active community garden that grows fresh produce, and allows residents a place to garden and grow their own herbs and food.
  5. Take a trip down the yellow brick row! Located on N Franklin Ave, the businesses located in a string of historic yellow brick buildings are making things interesting! The already established Rialto Theater and Hidden Springs Ale Works are being joined by The Hip Room (a new dance studio featuring hip hop to ballet in a fabulously renovated space), a high end kitchen store, coffee shop and more. As each of the buildings is brought back to life we get more & more excited!

  6. They get involved! In addition to community porch parties, Tampa Heights has a thriving Civic league and Junior Civic league. Their goal is to help transition the Heights as it witnesses the dramatic rejuvenation of business corridors and residential areas.
  7. You can walk there! First conceived in 1975 the Riverwalk finally opened its over water section near Kennedy Blvd in 2015. The city will finish the section between the Straz and Waterworks park this summer, finally linking all of downtown to Tampa Heights.
  8. A great place to park it! Opened in 2014, Water Works park echos the dramatic transformation of the entire Tampa Heights neighborhood. Once the spot for Tampa Police’s fuel depot, a $7.4 million project turned the land into park that has something for everyone. There is a splash park, dog walk, a stage, and lawn for festivals like the spring Shakespeare Festival. Park it right next to Ulele’s and we’re in!
  9. It’s a great place to live! This vibrant community has is embraced by passionate urbanites.  On the weekend you can hear hammering and sawing as new homeowners lovingly renovate historic homes.  Check out the homes available here!
