Being single in any city can either be a self-discovering adventure or a dreadful existence. It’s even more difficult when you live in a community that feels as if all the residents are families— those who are in relationships, those who are married, those with children. The bottom line is that it can be challenging finding other singles in your vicinity. But, Tampa, it turns out, is the perfect place to be single. Here are a few of the best neighborhoods young, single professionals should check out.

  • Hyde Park: a beautiful area geared toward younger professionals. Despite being a pricier neighborhood, you’ll find there is always something to do- fun events, unique restaurants, nightlife scenes, fitness options, and exciting shopping opportunities.

  • Channelside: an up-and-coming neighborhood with waterfront views. Living in this urban area offers residents a city feel while still boasting great views of the water. This area continues to improve through various construction projects, making it the perfect neighborhood if you want to be surrounded by all the new things coming to Tampa!
