The beauty about living in Tampa Florida is that it’s a beach town, which gives it a laid-back vibe, but it has a lot of amenities that rival big cities.
In addition, Tampa has a lot of diversity and the city is rich in history, and best of all, it’s a great place to raise a family.
The schools are amazing and there are lots of activities for kids. Especially during the Summer when they are out of school. Raising kids in a city like Tampa is great because they will be exposed to so many different things. There are lots of museums, recreation parks, water activities, zoos, theme parks and so much more. While my kids enjoy most of the outdoor activities, I prefer to take them to places that are comfortable inside with air conditioning. If you don’t already know, the Summers in Tampa can be unforgiving. The temperatures are usually in the low to mid 90s and between May to October, the humidity is usually at its highest. So, I try to plan days with the kids that includes going to a museum or to an indoor playground. Or any indoor venue that has air conditioning. The kids don’t mind being outside in the heat, so the air conditioned places are for my sanity and comfort. I don’t mind doing activities outdoors, as long as I can find a way to cool off while doing them. For instance, when I take the kids to the amusement parks, I find activities that are indoors with air conditioning inside the park. I am just happy that there are so many options for indoor as well as outdoor fun in Tampa.
