A Melting Pot of Cultures
According to the US Census Bureau, Tampa is one of the top five most diverse, integrated urban areas in the country. Throughout the year, the city is alive with fairs and festivals honoring cultures from all corners of the world as well as events unique to Tampa. For example, the Gasparilla Pirate Festival in January is a free event with more than 100 years of history.
Spirituality and faith customs also are important to the Tampa community. It is easy to find places to worship and connect with others who share your religious beliefs.
