This is a glorious place. The water on one side and grass (mostly) on the other. The speed limit is 40mph and, on the whole, it is obeyed. No trucks are allowed so it is tolerable for an urban linear park. There is no shade to speak of so plan accordingly. If you are lucky, you may see dolphins and/or... More

The best place fro a Bicycle or Run day either with freinds or by yourself. Even take your little puppy pet and go for a walk as you please.

Not really sure this would be on Things To Do. Skip it. No appeal to the drive, nothing spectacular about the houses, the water is black and gross and I see no reason why anyone would go out of their way to drive this. Waste of my time.

Bayshore Boulevard and the adjacent neighborhood are a feast for the eyes. So many beautiful, large and quaint homes that will inspire you to go out and make more money so you can buy one. It looks like something out of a Hollywood movie or a postcard of Americana culture. I could drive around it for hours.

Walk along Bayshore Boulevard to view the most beauiful view of Tampa Bay and historical southern homes of old Florida along this 3 mile sidewalk. Bring your sunscreen and sunglasses to observe it all.

Driving down Bayshore Blvd is so soothing, and peaceful... if you walk or ride your bike it is even better! I go out of my way to drive along Bayshore rather than take the highway or other options. It's hard to believe that something so beautiful is in the city!! Take the time out of your day to drive this... More

When visiting family in Tampa I always try to get down to Bayshore to run along the bay. Beautiful scenery and paved/cement walkway.
