Are you an outdoors person? No, not hunting and fishing, but just lazily basking in the sun. If so, you probably want to live in Tampa. In 2008, Tampa was ranked as the 5th best outdoor city by Forbes. According to Forbes, the annual percentage of sunny days in Tampa is 66%. Tampa has also been ranked one of the best cities for 20 somethings by NYU newspaper. Hip “20 Somethings” and warm weather sounds like a recipe for a fun and exciting city. But, maybe you aren’t the partying and live entertainment type.
Tampa has a number of beaches you can go to that will allow you to chill out after a hard weeks work. This will give you time to tan, nap, or even read. If you are the outgoing type, there is nothing wrong with a combination of relaxing during the day and enjoying the night life. You will never have a problem finding something to do, and if you want to do absolutely nothing some days, Tampa is a great place to do that as well.
