Tampa residents will tell you that SoHo is named after South Howard Avenue, but this party zone models itself after New York's shopping and entertainment neighborhood. Instead of the palm trees and sand usually associated with Tampa Bay, SoHo offers coffee bars, designer retail, farmers markets, and gourmet food festivals. Nestled within Hyde Park's residential area is the Old Hyde Park Village shopping district, which comes alive at night with sleek lounges, thumping dance clubs, and gay bars.
Getting Around Tampa
The best way to get around Tampa is by car. While public transit exists, the system can be confusing to visitors. If staying downtown during your entire visit, you might forgo a car and use the TECO Line Streetcar instead.
