It's our favorite day of the year! 

8/13 Day (August 13th for those of you with desk calendars) is a day to celebrate everything great about The 813. The people, the weather, the food, the sunshine... all that makes our city wonderful.

We'll be celebrating all day with lists, updates, pictures, videos, and everything else wonderful about our fair city. 

To help get you in the mood, check out eight (8) of our favorite articles from the past year here at 813area, along with 13 things to do on the day to celebrate Tampa Bay!

One of our fav spots to visit is where we got married. The Ybor Historic Garden & Museum. We love to visit the garden when we can. You can feel Tampa's history and beauty there! #TampaProud #TeamTampaBay #813Day
