There were plenty of things to do in Tampa, but there definitely was also a lot of crime; everything from credit card theft at the gas pump to retail theft. The drivers in Florida are also terrible! There are constantly car accidents happening in Florida and because of this the car insurance is of course higher than other states. Kids also get their licenses at 16 and drive very irresponsibly and I was actually a victim of an 18-year-old's negligence while driving. I now have life-altering injuries because of it.

One of our favorite places to go in Tampa, before the accident, was Top Golf; it was lots of fun and it was right around the corner from where we lived. My girlfriend and I also enjoyed going out to eat at the Golden Corral or Longhorn Steakhouse; which were also very close to our home. We did have a lot of things close to where we lived, but a lot of other things, like the beach, were quite far away unfortunately.

My parents live in Florida so its nice to visit with them when I get the chance. My mom and my stepfather live in Tampa while, my dad and stepmom live in Bonita Springs. My mother hates it that her kids and grandchildren live so far away but, my mother and stepdad would not live here. My mom's house is five minutes away from the airport so it is an easy pickup. Their condo has a lot of wildlife surrounding it. We have seen alligators, birds, monkeys, and domestic animals up close. It is nice to visit especially going to see the amusement parks. On the other hand, there have been two times where I have gotten sick but, I think it was something I ate.

I think there are a couple of things that stand out. They have numerous parades that throw out different types of beads. The Tampa Zoo is big on Christmas decorations and they always dress it up with different colored lights so that is something I like to see. My two year old daughter has never visited but, they have tons of children's events for her age. We are going to Florida this December so it will an experience for her. On the other hand, there is lots of wildlife which is a good thing to see but, can become dangerous if not handled properly.
