There are so many options, you're bound to find something you love. A personal favorite restaurant is 4Rivers. It;s a barbecue restaurant on dale mabry. My favorite dish there is probably a pulled pork sandwich with macaroni and cheese, texas cornbread, and bread pudding.

The Tampa Tap toom is also extremely good. It's obviously a good place for beer, but they also have award-winning burgers, amazing po'boys, and the macaroni and cheese bites are phenomenal!

Very calm and peaceful. Quiet but filled with young families. Tons of restaurants nearby and Busch Gardens is about 15 minutes away. A perfect place to settle down out of the city.
The weather here is pretty unpredictable. One day it could be burning hot, the next it could be chilly and storming. There are a lot of thunderstorms in the summer, which is typical for Florida. Summers are hot, humid, and rainy, Fall is perfect weather- High 60's, low 70's and breezy, winter is pretty much the same as fall, but for a week or two, it may get fairly cold, even dropping to freezing or below. The most essential items in my wardrobe are all over the place. Must have shorts/t-shirts, Jeans, sweaters. Everything.
