The wealthy are moving to Tampa Florida from California and New York, seeking fun and a sunny upgrade. Who wouldn’t want to upgrade their lifestyle? For those seeking the best of the best, Forbes has named Tampa Bay as the best place to live in Florida. The Tampa natives are not surprised. We knew the secret would get out eventually. This low-key coastal city is invaded annually by spring breakers, snowbirds, and pirates all seeking fun in the Florida sun. ChampaBay keeps them coming back for more every year.

  1. Say it with me: tax breaks bring business.

Florida is the safe haven for those seeking relief from exorbitant real estate taxes. As a sunny bonus, Florida has no state tax.

2. The ease of traveling internationally from Florida.

Florida is home to many private airports and, for those that fly commercially, Tampa International Airport offers direct flights to most of Europe.

3. A place in the sun to park your yacht with easy access to the Caribbean. Deep sailboat water and sport fishing at your back door are hard to beat.

4. They love a good party.

"Party in the city where the heat is on.

All night, on the beach till the break of dawn." Will Smith

Miami and Key West have gotten most of the attention, just ask Will Smith. Not to ruffle your feathers Miami but Tampa is no slouch in the party department. We always have something to celebrate (See Champabay). Feel the Cuban heat in historic Ybor City where you can get a hand-rolled cigar, an excellent meal at the Columbia, and dance the night away at the clubs.

5. Lifes’ a game, and they come to play and end up staying.

"Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out with the crowd;

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks,

I don't care if I never get back.

Let me root, root, root for the home team,

If they don't win, it's a shame." Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer

Champabay is the home of the Tampa Bay Lighting, the Buccaneers, and the Rays. It is also home to championship tennis, golf courses, and the newly emerging sport of pickleball. The Gulf coast is ideal for sailors and sport fishermen. For those seeking some fresh air kiteboarding will keep you active in this sunny paradise. Find your new home in Tampa now.
