Tampa Bay


  • A new Canadian airline, Lynx Air, will be flying into TIA this fall and offering nonstop flights to Toronto and Montreal. Makes sense as Canadians are the largest source of international visitation, home ownership and foreign direct investment in Tampa Bay.
  • Approximately 300 cruises are expected to sail through Tampa this year.
  • Tampa received a nice shout-out from the Wall Street Journal for its new, ever-evolving urbanism.  In short, “live, work, play, stay” is seen as a magnet for “millennials and Gen Zers.”
  • Tampa Bay’s state representatives—of BOTH parties—signed on in opposition to any new off-shore drilling leases. Yes, there’s still some bipartisan hope.

“Ultimately, I’d like to move bicycles off the Riverwalk.” That was Mayor Jane Castor. We get it. Bicyclists don’t always observe the posted 5 mph speed limit as well as the yield-to-pedestrians signage.
