The Neighborhood

Explore the oak lined streets and the beautiful old houses. Lee Groceries, a bar which serves the best pizza and chicken wings in town is in walking distance. We are members of the Tampa heights community garden where we grow organic vegetables. The Refinery and the Independent Bar are close by. Ybor City with the history of the Cuban cigar factories is very vibrant and interesting. Ybor City also has great food and lots of shopping. Saturday morning there is an art and design market.
Take a bike along the river to downtown and visit the Tampa museum of modern art, The Cube the Photography museum and the History museum.

When you are concerned with your carbon footprint as we are you might like to know that we have a Chevy Volt to give you rides for an additional fee.
