The Tampa Bay area of Florida has a rich history. The bay area was once called home by indigenous people. Being close to the water gave the early settlers a source of food, travel, and basic survival. Since then, the city of Tampa has risen to become the second largest city in Florida (population). According to the Tampa Bay Tribune, in 2017, Tampa, and the surrounding area, has seen an uptick in job opportunities. This could mean a population is boom is on its way, as someone will need to fill the abundance of openings.
Tampa is the third largest city in Florida with a population that breaks 375,000 residents. The coastal city is bordered by Tampa Bay, which is an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico.

The education level of Tampa is considered high. 35.53% of the residents have a four year college degree, that’s higher than the national average of 21.84%.
