Whether you live in one of the downtown Tampa, FL apartments or out in one of the suburban areas, the weather is one of the best things about this region. After all, Florida isn’t nicknamed the "sunshine state" for nothing. Located on the west coast of the Florida peninsula, Tampa and the surrounding communities have the benefit of plenty of sunshine along with beautiful, cooling breezes from the bay.
Although summer temperatures can be a bit high, typically a quick rain shower cools things off in the afternoon. The abundance of water activities also helps you beat the heat in the summer months. Once summer is over, the reward is a stunning fall, winter and spring. The average annual temperature here is 73 degrees. All of the communities in this area benefit from the proximity to the water, whether it is to jump in and cool off on a hot summer day, or sit back and enjoy the cool breeze on a cool fall evening.
