Downtown Reviews

1 review
I admire the scenery found Downtown. The amenities provided for not only tourists, but also for locals are infinite and easily accessible. For example, there are numerous modes of transportation provided, but the most popular is the "Downtowner", which is a complimentary ride service. One can never be unoccupied in the city of Tampa. The benefits of living in Downtown Tampa seem even better as a student, as the proximity of business firms and other organizations places job opportunities at students' fingertips.
