What Bert Has To Say About Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metro Area

This metropolitan area includes Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater, all of which surround Tampa Bay. The area is varied and cosmopolitan with a pleasant climate and balanced local economy. A 1980’s building boom brought downtown Tampa skyscrapers, a major airport renovation, and the development of a cruise-ship terminal. While soft in the early part of the decade, the economy has gained traction recently as the benefits of a business-friendly climate have paid off. Among other new economy pursuits, the area has become a favorite as a secondary location for information processing for the financial industry.
