I love South Tampa. There are many great restaurants and shops within walking distance. However, things are more expensive in South Tampa.

If you like to pay twice as much for half the product, this is the area of town you need to live in. If you can sneak in to the canals off of westshore, you're in fishing heaven. Other than that, it's over rated unless...More
