Tampa Heights Reviews

3
The Tampa Heights location is fabulous. The area is only 5 minutes from downtown Tampa and the interstate is nearby for quick commuting. The area is also conveniently close to USF, Ybor City and many other fun attractions. My favorite part about the Tampa Heights neighborhood is its rich history and historic homes in the area.

Definitely has it's pockets, but its in the middle all the happening spots between Seminole Heights and Downtown
Quiet neighborhood. I wish it was more walkable though. The housing market around here has been going up.
