Or you could just wander on down to the beach, take a seat in the sand, and enjoy another spectacular Florida sunset...

That sunset is a postcard in itself.

Beautiful!

Unique street names in Tampa:

As far as I can tell, this is the only street with this name in the United States.
Republica de Cuba (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ferret111/4587447756/ - broken link) by ferret111 (http://www.flickr.com/people/ferret111/ - broken link), on Flickr

This is a major street, yet this portion is so short, that I don't believe many people know the name.

And who can forget this one, which is probably Tampa's most notoriously weird street name.

My honey and I recently spent the day in downtown St. Petersburg, checking out the Pier and the Farmer's Market. We had a great time!

Here are some of my pics of the people and places we saw....

Tampa Theater recently had a "History and Haunts" tour that I checked out. Here are some pics...

^^ The Tampa Theatre is one of Tampa's best features. Have you seen a movie there? If not, you need to. They're a little pricey, but I don't feel bad paying $9-10 for a ticket because of the atmosphere. Why people pay that much to go to a mall AMC, I'll never know. At least they saved the Tampa. Out of the dozen or so downtown theaters (including the elaborate Florida and Palace), the Tampa's the only one left.

Also, fun fact about the City Hall picture. The clock on top is named "Hortense."

For a completely different moviegoing experience, I recommend the Fun-Lan, Tampa's last drive-in:

I have! My mother and I enjoy old movies and we usually go when one we particularly enjoy is playing. It's a beautiful old theater and it was nice to be able to freely explore it, even the projection room was open.
