Tampa Bay has lots of things to offer its residents and tourists.
If you leave here, you know. Tampa rules, conclusively, completely and forever. And now, The Bay has made TIME Magazine’s Worlds Best Places list. It’s for good reason, too.
TIME lists many reasons for choosing Tampa.
First is the weather, which we all guessed would figure in there somewhere. Second, the economy in our Bay is booming. Everywhere you look, you see construction. While that can be cumbersome when going to and coming from work and restaurants, it sill spells prosperity. With each crane you spot downtown, there come more jobs and more tax dollars. Just take a moment to think about our shining examples of growth. There’s Armature Works, the Riverwalk, Channelside, John’s Pass, Clearwater and St. Pete Beaches and countless other attractions. We also have a thriving sea port, with cruise ships coming and going constantly. Our area used to be a refuge for retirees, but that image is changing. Just take a walk along any beach or shopping center, you’ll see young people by the thousands.
I know what you’re thinking, what other places made the list? After all, they say you are the company you keep. Well, the list is quite impressive. Other cities mentioned and praised by TIME are Barcelona, Spain and Naples, Italy. We’re in rare air, my friends! The places on the list were picked because of growth, tourism and accessiblility. Tampa kicks butt in that last category, with flights coming in and out of Tampa, St. Pete and Sarasota nonstop. Tampa also recently introduced nonstop flights to London’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Tampa has got it going on, and that’s a fact. Whether you’re talking about sports teams, real estate, a prospering business climate or a strong hiring market, we kick butt. Here’s the complete list from TIME magazine. Source: Fox13News.com

5 Cheap Airfare Deals from Tampa for Under $200 Round Trip
It’s not a popular travel season, but if you can take some vacation days, this is a great time of year to score a flight deal. Kids are still in school so leisure travel drops off and the airlines want to fill those empty seats so they know they have to cut prices. Here are 5 cities I love to visit that you can fly round trip right now for $200 or less.
All of these flights I found by searching the dates April 5 through April 12. Midweek flights are often where you’ll find the bargains. Keep in mind too many of these airlines nickel and dime you by charging for things like a carry on bag, picking your seat or having a snack on the plane.
If you can pack light, you’ll save a lot. I found a “personal item” size bag on Amazon for $10 that let me avoid even bringing on a typical carry on size bag for short trips or visits where I can easily get my laundry done. If you’re not one who can travel light, the crazy thing is you’ll often find a check in size piece of luggage is cheaper than a carry on!
Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny.
That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards.
After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind.
He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex.
He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
