    Almost rivals Mall of America in wow factor. But mostly clothing and jewelry stores that have exorbitant prices. But that is no different than Mall of America.
    Fun place to people watch and to get out of the heat and humidity.

    Definitely a high end area! It’s safe and clean with a lot of great restaurants and shops! Perfect for walking off a great meal

    Great place to enjoy yourself after walking the Riverwalk. Lots of restaurants and people. It's definitely worth a stop

    We did the seafood cooking class & it was very enjoyable. We were disappointed that it wasn’t hands-on and we thought it was, but the meal was wonderful. The dessert was less than spectacular and I would never order it in a restaurant. Every other course that we ate was absolutely wonderful. The wine pairings were well chosen and delicious. Michele was a great hostess, server.
    The chefs used loud voices and you could hear what they were saying. This is good, unlike Sur la Table, or you can barely hear anything the chef is saying as he instructs.
    It was disappointing that the video system and the monitors did not work, so we couldn’t see close-up what they were doing as they prepared and cooked the food.
    Publix aprons you really need to fix that!

    It would be good if you could teach a hands-on cooking class on the weekends (on a Saturday would be perfect or Sunday afternoon) because those of us who work Monday through Friday and live far away can’t drive that far to spend hours in a cooking class and on a school night!

    You can tell this mall is a bit on the older side—as a couple of its anchoring stores have left and are now vacant eye sores on the property—but that didn’t stop my family (which included a couple of teens) from having a nice time shopping and browsing.

    Tampa doesn’t offer much in the way of great mall options but this was a sufficient location to do some general shopping.

    The market has a variety of vendors selling produce, bakery, crafts, and some hot foods.

    Live entertainment.

    It is a nice time to visit Centennial Park.

    Reviews pretty much do not recommend going to this mall, but my teenage girls like it! There aren't too many stores, but we got a lot for our money.

    The owner/proprietor of this small shop, a retired physician, clearly loves and understands his books like his children. The prices of his eclectic collection are reasonably priced (yet negotiable). Certainly worth a visit if you are anywhere in the neighborhood.

    For anyone with an interest in a variety of art styles and mediums, the Michael Murphy Gallery, located in the SoHo (South Tampa) district, has plenty of surprises. The gallery has a cozy, comfortable, friendly, and unhurried atmosphere filled with an array of thought-provoking delights.

    On my visit, when walking through the door, I was welcomed with an extraordinary exhibit of photo mosaic work by Robin Austin. The pieces are stunning in their creative design.

    From old world portraits and peaceful landscapes to magnificent prints of superheroes and iconic cartoon characters, there's something to please every particular visual palate through an assortment of artistic visions, styles and colorful palettes.

    The gallery is a working entity with work created in oil, watercolors, acrylics, prints, photo mosaics, marble, and more. Ask to see the additional work stored in the drawers waiting to be framed and the massive choice the gallery has available for framing. The frames, alone, are works of art.

    Had a nice view of the Main Street and the cigar selection was great. Coffee was good too. I will definitely be back here. We ate a hummus platter and watched the city walk by us. Pretty neat.

    It is higher priced then it's sister store's , And I have been to all three of them . My favorite is the one in Bradenton, the prices on the bric-a -brac are lower then the one in Tampa . I don't know what it is with those store's in that area . I guess they think that because the Base is located there and Bayshore that they need to have the prices set high. Or maybe it's high rent don't know. They are called Thrift Shop's for a reason. And the jewerly price there (ouch ) real gold . You could probably get cheaper in a pawn shop.

    This was a surprise find for me during our stay in Tampa. Well worth the stop as was able to browse the books with help of the owner. Very knowledgeable about her books and where to find them. Saved me a lot of time. I was able to sort through the shelves, finding surprises of books I had been looking for, reasonable prices..came away with 13 books I had been searching for and a couple I wasn't looking for. Was a jackpot stop for me. Will check it out when back in Tampa..worth a couple of hours. Great for used books of pulp series i collect. Thank you
