Tampa Palms Reviews

Tampa Palms is a great place to move if you're unfamiliar with Tampa. My Father and I moved to Tampa from Michigan and had no idea where would be a good area to start. New Tampa offers some rural feel with easy access to the city, within 30 minutes drive of downtown. There are many restaurants to choose from, several higher education institutions (University of Tampa, University of South Florida, Hillsborough Community College, Argosy University), quite a few job opportunities, medical institutions within a few minutes. The location is close enough to Clearwater/St.Pete beaches and Orlando via Rt. 4. The only real downsides are that the traffic can be terrible, as expected, during rush hour times on 275, 75, and Bruce B Downs, and housing is pricier than the surrounding areas.

Tampa palms is located in heart of Tampa, about 15 miles from downtown. very close to USF . Tampa palms offers great secluded gated communities, so in spite of being in heart of city , you have lot of privacy, peace, serenity. you get to experience nature all around you. many houses offer great backyards with water or conservation view. There are great side walks for runners, walkers, bicycle paths, several gyms, fitness centers for fitness enthusiasts. Family oriented atmosphere, good schools, recreational centers, movie theaters, shopping centers, malls, restaurants, etc. expansion of Bruce b Downs should help with traffic situation in the morning.
Overall it's great, really close to Busch Gardens, grocery stores, a couple bars, etc. Only real complaint I have is the traffic sometimes and they're working on making the roads 4 lane instead of 2 lane so that should fix that problem.
