The plentiful things to do, year round. I also like the fact that I can go grocery shopping on a Saturday and not have to circle around and around for parking, like I had to in NJ. Shopping is more civilized.

Just the fact that it has everyting that a much larger city would have, but on a much much smaller scale..history, character, charm, grittiness, culture, art, museums, sports, concerts, festivals, nightlife, cafes, world class airport, beaches, outdoor activities year round, academics(USF and UT), mixture of people from everywhere.....

I'm a big sports fan - enjoy that TB has MLB w/ Spring Training, NFL, (not a fan of NHL), USF football/basketball, PGA events.

Weather, beaches, golf, cultural events (concerts), Busch Gardens (like the entertainment, free beer samples).

Nice international airport, imo.

Going to enjoy moving back there after being away since joining military in 1983.
