Historic Tampa Heights

Tampa Heights neighborhood is National Historic District and is considered to be Tampa’s first suburb (1 mile from downtown) when it was established in the 1880s.

There are still many homes and buildings throughout the neighborhood that go back to its roots. Today’s Tampa Heights is quickly changing with recent additions of Ulele Restaurant and

Brewery, Water Works Park, Riverwalk Extension, Hidden Springs Brewery, and many other businesses that are opening in the neighborhood on a regular basis.

Past

Developed in the early 1880s, it became the home of Tampa’s first doctors, judges, business owners and other early civic leaders. It is considered the First Suburb of Tampa, even though it is only 1 mile from the heart of downtown.
