The downtown area of Tampa is the central business district of the city and is home to a number of major employers as well as the Tampa Convention Center. The area encompasses 521 acres with the Hillsborough River on the east, Harbour Island in the south, and I-275 to the north. Many who choose to become residents of Tampa or the outlying areas find Tampa’s downtown area has quite a bit to offer in terms of activities and culture.
Downtown Tampa features four different and distinct districts – the Channel District, the University Area, Riverwalk, and Encore. The Channel District features businesses, high rise residences, and an abundant amount of nightlife. The university area is on the western edge of downtown and is the home of the University of Tampa. Encore is the northern part of downtown and is a new construction area that will be home to condos, stores, and more. Riverwalk adds some visual appeal to the downtown Tampa area.
Residents who move downtown, or who visit from some of the other communities around Tampa, such as Clearwater or St. Petersburg, have plenty to see and do. One of the most popular places to visit is the Florida Aquarium in the Channel District. Some of the other popular spots in Tampa’s downtown include the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, the Tampa Bay History Center, Glazer Children’s Museum, and the Tampa Museum of Art. The Tampa Theater is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
