Tampa found on the east coast of the United states is one of Florida's most popular cities with a population of 346, 037 after the 2011 census board estimation, and it is one of the best places to live. Tampa was originally settled by the Tocobaga and Pohoy tribes, but since becoming part of what is known as the Tampa Bay area, this city which has been cited by Forbes as the fifth best outdoor city and fifth most popular city in America based on where people want to live by a research carried out by Pew, is home to hundreds of cultures and races.

Tampa is an old city and bears still the marks of her long and storied history. Originally known as Tanpa for Tongues of fire, this city burns with an enthusiasm and an energy that is infectious even to visitors. Warm and sunny, Tampa occasionally is struck by thunderstorms, but in a city where the winter is almost warm, the climate is always on vacation mode.

The city sports dozens of skyscrapers, underlining an economic prosperity. Some of the skyscrapers are positive feats of engineering such as Rivergate Tower, Park Tower, One Tampa City Centre, Bank of America plaza etc. Other symbols of architectural wonder include the Sunshine Skyway bridge and the Sulphur Springs Water tower.

The night life in Tampa is out of this world. With the great number of theaters, and music groups in the city, there is never a dull moment. For the more conservative, Tampa plays host to many museums, art galleries etc. not all the museums are of art like the Tampa Museum of Art, but some are actually about other things, such as the Museum of Science and Industry.

In the midst of the fun and happiness in Tampa, religion is not left out of the picture. The religious community in Tampa is rich and vibrant. It consists of Christians, which includes the Pentecosals, Methodists, Catholics, Latter day saints, Korean churches, some mosques, Hindu and Buddhist temples, Zoroaster and even a Church of Scientology. It is one of the few places in the United States where citizens worship with any religion.

Tampa is the seventh largest port in the world and the largest tonnage port in Florida. So, in case you are interested in shipping heavy machinery out or in, this is the place for you to stay for ease of access. Tampa is also, just after Miami, the second largest holiday cruise centers.

Tampa city is an important resource. It is not a small surprise that the main server for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Foundation are hosted right in Tampa. It is also the location of a military base, The MacDill Airforce Base.

Recently, the focus in Tampa has moved to securing better housing for citizens. Many projects are even now ongoing to refurbish the downtown area of Tampa. This should spell good news, not only in the downtown area, strolling through the streets in the night would become more of a blessing than a fear.
