Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

South Tampa is the ultimate hub for unique entertainment, restaurants, and eateries. Take Berns, for instance. Opened in 1956, this exquisite steakhouse has one of the largest wine collections in the area—and, of course—premium, dry-aged steaks. It’s quite the dining experience, with an internationally famous dessert room and tours of the wine cellar and kitchen. Armature Works is a fully restored, eclectic gathering spot that serves mixed purposes. This event space has an upscale food court called Heights Public Market, elevated dining options, and a lofty bar lounge. As far as shopping goes, there are seemingly endless options to serve all of your retail needs. Hyde Park Village is a chic open-air complex with high-end retailers. Shop until you drop, then have a nice lunch at one of the Village’s restaurants or bars and end your evening with a movie at the theater. The lively MacDill Avenue is also home to upscale boutiques and independent eateries that offer global fare.

Things to Do

Originally known as the Ice Palace, Amalie Arena is home to sports such as ice hockey, basketball, and arena football, as well as headlining concerts and world tours. This is where the legendary National Hockey League’s Tampa Bay Lightning play. For everyday fun and activity, take a stroll or break a sweat on Bayshore Boulevard, which is the longest continuous sidewalk in the world at 4.5 miles long and 10 feet wide. Residents love to get out to walk, jog, run, or cycle day and night, rain or shine. Stretching from Columbus Statue Park in the north to Gandy Boulevard in the south, it’s known to have some of the most picturesque views and urban scenery in all of Tampa. This vibrant community does local events big, but it does large-scale events even bigger. Gasparilla is an iconic pirate festival that takes place once a year at Old Tampa Bay. It’s a large parade as well as a collection of community events held almost every year since 1904.
