Tampa City Florida: The Perfect Winter City

I spent a few years living in Tampa in my early twenties when I was trying to figure out what to do with my life. I like the heat so I thought this was the perfect place to get away from snowy, cold grim New Jersey. When I lived in Tampa after I relocated from grey Patterson, I felt as if I had come alive. I later left because my husband got a job in Boston, but we still happily go back to visit Tampa at least once every two years. Anyone who is looking to move here should know that the city climate is hot. Not a little bit hot but really, really hot. It's also quite humid. So if you can't stand really warm weather, this is not the place for you. But if you love to swim in winter and hate the cold, this is an awesome choice. Unlike Miami about two hours to the east, Tampa is not quite the big city. It's a big city for Florida but not by world standards. But it is fairly compact and easy to get around in. You don't have to worry about a place to park on most days. Mostly this is a town where you can stay outdoors for much of the year, enjoy beautiful public beaches and be around nature. I've seen at least a dozen birds in any given trip. I've also been able to have my pick of local bathing spots. Try Indian Shores to spend an entire day on the boardwalk next to the sand and the sea. The beach is only a quick walk from the boardwalk. There's lots of fun games kids can play if they get bored.
