Seminole Heights was voted as one of the top neighborhoods in the nation by Southern Living, and recently mentioned in Travel and Leisure and Money Magazine. We are a city within a city, and the beautiful tree-lined streets feature charming restored bungalows and 100 year old brick roads. We are home to many artists and entrepreneurs, and new local businesses are popping up every week. It's an extremely exciting place to be for foodies, craft beer enthusiasts and artists, as well as families with a taste for the extraordinary! Walk to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, America's #1 rated Zoo for kids. Epps park and the Hillsborough River are also a short walk, and eateries, cafes, bakeries, vintage shops and more are all a short walk away. The house is only a few hundred feet from 5 star eateries Chop Chop Shop and Rooster and the Till.
The neighborhood is very close to the major highways, just a mile North of historic Ybor City, and very close to downtown Tampa, Convention Center, USF, Busch Gardens, and Adventure Island. There are also many unique eateries and pubs in the immediate neighborhood that offer everything from local organic flavors to vegan options, craft beer and more. There is something for everyone.

Southern Living turns spotlight on Seminole Heights
The buzz began last fall that Southern Living magazine was doing a profile on Seminole Heights.
The eclectic neighborhood’s moment in the spotlight came in the March issue of the magazine.
Seminole Heights has a full-page spread in the Traveler section of the magazine – complete with a map of the area, seven spotlighted restaurants and shops, and five photos.
The write-up spotlights four restaurants, including the Independent Bar and Café and Domani Bistro Lounge on North Florida Avenue; the Refinery, where Chef Greg Baker was a James Beard Award finalist last year; and Ella’s Americana Folk Art Café on North Nebraska Avenue, which was the focus of a Tampa Bay Business Journal Strategies story last year.
The magazine feature also took a look at three Seminole Heights shops: Brooksie’s Market and Cleanse Apothecary on North Florida Avenue, and specialty bike shop Vélo Champ on North Central Avenue.
The magazine called Seminole Heights the “next great neighborhood.”

I've been an indie game developer for over a decade, and also renovate houses. I enjoy outdoor activities such as biking, kayaking, the beach, and paddle boarding. I love trying new eateries and Seminole Heights is loaded with them.
