East Lake/Trinity/Palm Harbor/ Tarpon Springs/Dunedin
Population is now 536,000 and growing.
The Tampa Bay Area has been growing tremendously over the last decade. However, in the last year we have seen explosive growth. That’s no surprise to us. We live in the one of the most desirable areas in the world. We are about 30 minutes to Clearwater Beach, 35 minutes to Tampa and it’s fine restaurants and entertainment, and the World Champion Tampa Bay Lightning. About 25 mins to Tampa Bay Bucs Staduim. Across the street from the Buc’s is the spring training facility for that New York Yankee’s. Over the bridge and about 30 mins away is The Tampa bay Rays. World class golf courses. Wonderful parks and wild life. If you are thinking about make this area your home, you will not be missing out on a thing.
The Tampa Bay area has a humid subtropical climate closely bordering a tropical climate near the waterfront areas.
Nearly two-thirds of the annual precipitation falls in the months of June through September. The area is listed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as being in hardiness zone 9bas well as hardiness zone 10a just along the immediate coast and in peninsular Pinellas; which is about the northern limit of where coconut palms and royal palms can be grown. Highs usually range between 65 and 95 °F (18 and 35 °C) year round. Tampa’s official high has never reached 100 °F (38 °C) – the city’s all-time record temperature is 99 °F (37 °C). St. Petersburg’s all-time record high is exactly 100 °F (38 °C).
Pinellas County lies on a peninsula between Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, and much of the city of Tampa lies on a smaller peninsula jutting out into Tampa Bay. This proximity to large bodies of water both moderates temperatures and introduces large amounts of humidity into the atmosphere. In general, the local communities farthest from the coast have larger temperature ranges, both during a single day and throughout the seasons of the year.
Job hunters in Florida may have luck in Tampa Bay, according to a new WalletHub report.
WalletHub looked at 180 U.S. cities and evaluated them on their job markets, based on employment opportunities, job growth, average starting salary and socioeconomic factors like median annual income, transit score and average work/commute time. Those factors were used to create an overall score for each city.
St. Petersburg ranked No. 51, the highest ranking Florida city on the report. The Sunshine City had a job market score of 51 and a socioeconomic score of 58.
Tampa ranked as the 62nd best city to find a job with a job market score of 83 and a socioeconomic score of 39, making it the third best Florida city to find a job. The city did have the fourth-worst employment growth of any city on the report, which hurt its overall ranking.
Orlando landed at No. 53, while Jacksonville came in at No. 66. Tallahassee and Port St. Lucie ranked at Nos. 82 and 87, respectively.
Florida’s unemployment claims have steadily declined since the state’s high in April. Florida is also operating with no statewide business restrictions, which has helped struggling businesses.
Bottomline, we are growing and Tampa Bay is the place to be.
