Temple Terrace is a great city. It's very close to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. One is an amusement park and the other is a water park. Also the city has its own police department so you don't have to worry about Tampa PD slow response times. Also there are two different golf courses within Temple Terrace that I know of myself. Lastly the area is pretty calm, although there is crime, there isn't too much to a level where you would want to stay home.
Living in Temple Terrace has been nice. There are grocery stores and drug stores within walking distance. Temple Terrace has its own fire and police departments. The city also has a recreation center that has residential discounts with opportunities for all ages such as gymnastics, swimming, and basketball. The library and post office is also conveniently located.
