Most Expensive Tampa Neighborhoods
Tampa is a large coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Florida. With a population of 358,699 people and 177 constituent neighborhoods, Tampa is the third largest community in Florida.
Tampa is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 85.58% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average.

There are especially a lot of people living in Tampa who work in office and administrative support (14.18%), sales jobs (12.92%) and management occupations (10.24%).

One thing noticeable about Tampa, is that it has a large population of people who are young, single, educated, and upwardly-mobile career starters. That’s because Tampa is full of single people in their 20s and 30s and who have undergraduate or graduate degrees and are starting careers in professional occupations. This makes Tampa a great place for young, educated career starters looking to find many people like themselves, with good opportunities for friendships, socializing, romance, and fun. In fact, Tampa is one of the top larger cities in America for educated single professionals to flock.
One of the nice things about Tampa is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
