Temple Terrace: Tampa Bay's Hidden Gem

Living in Temple Terrace really is the dream in the Tampa Bay Area. I am right in the middle of everything I could imagine. I am a short distance away from the beaches in Sarasota, and not a far car ride from Orlando where I can access huge attractions like Disney World and Universal Studios. However, there is much to do right in the middle of Temple Terrace like visiting Busch Gardens, the Tampa Bay Zoo, or the Museum of Science and Industry, or MOSI as we like to refer to it.

Some of the best areas of Temple Terrace are right in the middle. The University of South Florida is in heart of town, attracting great young minds to live and grow here, and eventually adding to our workforce. Across the street is MOSI, which has recently been renovated.

There is lots of work available between all of the restaurants and the University Mall, along with corporate businesses of all types. This city is easy to navigate with highway access all over to get me where I need to go.
