I opted to transfer with my lady to Parrish after many years of living in downtown Tampa near South NE.
- Both of us were both getting claustrophobic from the dense, city life.
Neither of us were raised in a metropolitan area enjoy Tampa Bay, as both of us had moved up here from Venice which is a growing city in Sarasota County about an hour to the south of here. Downtown Tampa was fun at first, especially the bars in Ybor City back when my lady plus I showed up at the age of 18. When both of us finally hit the legal age to drink, our get-togethering kicked into high gear for another more than one or many years. Then both of us got burned out on the nightlife plus started spending more time in St; Petersburg plus nature preserves enjoy Weedon Island Preserve plus Sawgrass Lake Park, but that’s what pushed us down to Parrish because both of us realized that both of us appreciated the outdoor environment in FL more than anything else about the state. There’s plenty of rural neighborhoods in Parrish that are a far cry from the insanity that both of us experienced in downtown Tampa for so several years. Thankfully our Heating and Air Conditioning supplier still works with us after both of us moved from Tampa to north Manatee County this past year. They consider Parrish to be part of the greater Tampa Bay area so they are glad to repair our heating plus cooling plan out there. Both of us still live close enough to visit the city when both of us want to live plus experience city life again. It’s just a matter of jumping on Interstate 70 plus we’re in Tampa in under an hour.
