Temple Terrace Reviews

All Categories
Temple Terrace is a clean, diverse, small city with reasonably affordable housing. It is a college adjacent community with many restaurants, shops, banks and grocery stores in the area. The city is well situated near other municipalities and attractions like Busch Gardens and the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry. The commute to USF, downtown Tampa, New Tampa, and Brandon is short and the city is near major highways. There is no public transportation available on weekends in some areas but the offerings M-F are decent. As is often the case in any city, there is some poverty and crime in the area. There does seem to be increased investment in community development in the area particularly near USF.

Nice area with nice homes, and many great local eateries and shops. There's a great Recreational Center at the heart of the community, and it's close to Tampa's theme parks!
My neighborhood is a nice, peaceful area with a quiet setting and good neighbors. My community is very convenient with a country club, golfing, a successful college from walking distance, and multiple plazas.
