5) Tampa

The city of Tampa is Florida’s 3rd largest city and sits right along the Gulf of Mexico.

It is well known for having a great cultural scene with a number of fabulous attractions and activities for visitors and residents to take part in.

Tampa is also famously the home to a number of different sports teams including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays and the Tampa Bay Lightening.

The city was also named the 5th Best Outdoor City by Forbes magazine in 2008 due in large part to its wonderful parks system and excellent year round climate. We love the city for its relatively low cost of living compared to other city’s of its size, great location and its stable housing market.

It comes off as a great place to live and raise a family in as well, with plenty of activities for one to see and do year round. Tampa also offers a unique and diverse dining scene for residents to enjoy along with a number of great museums and festivals to take part in annually.
