Both port and resort, Florida's third-largest city attracts young professionals, retirees and vacationers to its major sports venues, historic architecture, modern hotels and thriving culinary and arts scene. All of it lies within a short drive of the sugar-white beaches of the Sunset Coast. Tampa's heady mix of immigrant cultures includes Spanish, Italian and especially Cuban; the influence is everywhere, especially in the music and the food of this vibrant city.
