Tampa Riverwalk Professional Reviews and Guides

"Includes: Tampa Downtown Walk, Ybor City Walk. One of the better-kept secrets of aviation history is that the world’s first scheduled airline service began in Tampa, just ten years after the Wright Brothers’ flight at Kitty Hawk. In 1914, pioneer aviator Tony Jannus ferried both passengers and cargo between Tampa and St. Petersburg in his “flying boat,” yet no one but locals ever seemed to notice. That seems to have been the pattern for the Tampa area in general.

It grew and prospered, but few seemed to notice. But once Tampa hosted its first Super Bowl, people began to realize the city’s long history of accomplishments. Seemingly when almost no one was looking, Tampa had blossomed into Florida’s third largest city as well as becoming the industrial and vacation hub of the state’s West Coast. Because so much of its growth came late, Tampa was able to reconcile both its past and present and cling to its cultural diversity. Tampa maintains the rich Spanish heritage from which it sprang and which has played such a vital force in shaping the city over several centuries."
