So true.. it's funny, the city REALLY wants people to live downtown or in Channelside district.. yet.. there are NO basics down there. No real shopping, no groceries, no necessities for daily life.

Until then, good luck selling!

Default well they just thought

the bubble would last forever or at least a while longer. Now it's all tourists and we love having them here but we don't want OUR only options for dining etc. to be tourist oriented places with tourist oriented prices

I'll be moving to Tampa in May. I'm debating between Hyde Park or Rocky Point. Is the bus system reliable enough to commute from the Hyde Park area to downtown every morning/afternoon for an 8-5 sort of job? Are they air-conditioned? (may be an odd question but many are not around here)

The 4 and the 19 both run through Hyde Park to downtown and the 30 runs on Kennedy to downtown. Busses are air conditioned, fairly comfortable, and rarely crowded.

SOHO/Hyde Park area are established residential areas, which have been around since the turn of the 20th century. Established necessities - shops, retail, restaurants, nightlife, etc....Tourist area may consist of Hyde park Village and South Howard Avenue, but its more of a locals area, with those visitors blending in search of great places to eat.

Channelside is a new urban residential area, with close to 2000 residents, many more being built and/or planned. Slowly there have been retail, restaurants, and necessities being opened each month in the area...the area is achored by Channelside Bay Plaza, which is a waterfront entertainment complex with shops, restaurants, nightlife, etc....Touriust areas like the Flroida aquarium, the Bay Plaza, The Forum are all located in the Channelside neighborhood.
