Yay!!! Got The Job In Tampa!!!

  1. Thank you, ALL of you, for your help so far! I've accepted a job.
    Also, just curious...what are your favorite places in the area? We drove around looking for a public park area (picnics, etc.) but didn't find one (we got turned around a few times, but let's not talk about that!).

    Anyway, thank you, thank you, thank you. I send good vibes out to every one of you that was so thoughtful towards me.

    BTW, can anyone recommend an industrial sunscreen? My forehead is burned to a crisp (that's that fair night shift skin there!) :angryfire (That's my face burning to a cancer-y crisp!!!)

    My favorite place to go to the beach is a place called Ft DeSoto on the southern tip of Pinellas County (South of St Pete). You can have a BBQ, ride your bike, whatever! And of course swim in the Gulf! Congrats on your new job!

    I have lived in Tampa all my life. One really neat park is called Lettuce Lake Park at 6920 E Fletcher Avenue. It has a boardwalk and a few trails. It's a nice place to picnic. A few other cool places you might want to see are Ybor City (During the day you can visit the shops, restaurants, or movie theater. At night there are lots of night clubs to choose from with lots of different music styles.), Clearwater Beach (gets more crowded on the weekends) and Bradenton Beach (down here there is a small ice cream shop called The Shake Pit that makes the BEST shakes in the world), Busch Gardens, Evos in Hyde Park if you like vegetarian burgers/healthy food, Miguels at 3035 W Kennedy Blvd is great authentic Mexican food in a charming setting, if you like upscale shopping you could go to Old Hyde Park Village or International Plaza. I prefer University Mall because they have Old Navy and Hot Topic.

    Hmmmm, that's all I can think of for now. Orlando is also another great place to visit. They have some cool outlet malls. Lots of great restaurants. Downtown Disney is filled with shops. Disney, of course. Pleasure Island has some interesting night clubs. Old Town in Kissimmee has shops and a classic car show on the weekends. They also have a Sephora in one of the malls. I love makeup so I make the trek up there about once a month.

    Hope I don't sound like a guidebook.
