Review for Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park wrote by Scott
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: Clean and beautiful waterfront park in Downtown Tampa. Only a short walk from many of downtown's attractions.
Cons: The park doesn't have it's own parking so during events at the Forum or Channelside you may have difficulty in parking if you are driving here.
Comments: Not many people really know about Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park or maybe they know the area but not familiar with it actually being a park. The advancement of the Tampa Riverwalk has really made this park come to life. Just south of the Forum, along the water and ..

Pros: The staff at Sumos Thai Cafe is extremely nice! The food was amazing and the Limeade was perfect!
Cons: It is in Downtown Tampa so you will most likely do street parking.

Review for Tampa Bay Lightning wrote by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingHalf Rating
Pros: It's good to have a great team in our local market. Going to a Tampa Lightning game is great fun!
Cons: Many people don't like that Tampa has a hockey team, let alone that our hockey wins the Stanley Cup.
Comments: The Lightning are a great team and its good to have them centrally located in Channelside which is in Downtown Tampa. Great fun for family, friends, and/or partiers. Also, there are great restaurants and bars in walking distance for enjoyment before and after the game.
Review for Taco Bus Downtown wrote by Carlos
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: Tasty Mexican food, open late, convenient to South Tampa and Brandon residents
Cons: Parking downtown with one-ways streets can be a little scary
Comments: The Downtown Tampa Taco Bus has a completely different feel from the original location, but still has the same great dishes and is much more convenient to South Tampa, Brandon, and Downtown Tampa residents. Open late - a great stop after a night out partying in SoHo or at Channelside. ..
Review for Tampa Luv Chicken & Waffles wrote by Scott
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
Pros: The food is fresh, hot and so delicious. The staff is very friendly.
Cons: The location isn't very conveniently for me as I work in Downtown Tampa and there is very little reason for me to head to that area of Tampa.
Comments: I had heard how amazing Chicken and Waffles are but have never tried them until now. Tampa Luv Chicken & Waffles is certainly a place to add to your list of restaurants to check out. All the food was made to order, fresh and amazing. I had ..

Pros: The food at Taco Bus is amazing! The service was very friendly and quick.
Cons: The original location is not in the best area of Tampa.
Comments: I rated them a 10 for restaurant atmosphere because it is their own unique atmosphere they create. It is a one of a kind experience to eat at Taco Bus. I suggest trying a few different items from the menu. They have multiple locations now including one ..

About Downtown Tampa

The Downtown Tampa skyline is growing with high rise office buildings like the Sykes building, and luxurious condominiums like Skypoint. The streets below the skyline are where you will find the many great restaurants, shops and bars that Tampa has to offer. Most of Tampa nightlife, along with other areas of interest, is found outside the downtown area in places like Hyde Park and historic Ybor City. Also located in Downtown Tampa are the Tampa Convention Center and St Pete Times Forum, where everything from classy Tampa events to exciting games happen. The University of Tampa is located just across the waters of Curtis Hixon Park, where many large, popular annual events are held. The TECO Line Streetcar provides affordable transportation to Channelside, Ybor City and downtown. Channelside is another popular neighborhood where there are popular restaurants, clubs, bars, shopping and theaters all in the same development! Harbour Island and Davis Island border Downtown Tampa just South onto the Bay Waters and house everything from enormous homes to subtle apartments all while being surrounded by their own small community with locally owned businesses, restaurants and salons. Be sure to check out everything Tampa has to offer by checking out the Tampa City Guide, where recreation, events and even local jobs in Tampa can be found!
