“Best place for a jog”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This place has some amazing views and very expensive homes. The area offers a 13 mile continuous sidewalk along with edge of the bay. There are typically hundreds of joggers, walkers, roller bladers, and people walking their pets. The breeze is usually nice and the local residents are very lucky to have such a nice place to exercise.

“Nice Views”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Decided to drive beyond Ybor City and see what else we could find. Ended up traveling past the Port of Tampa and Tampa General Hospital before finding ourselves riding along Bayshore Blvd. We found the views to be quite lovely and the houses that line the road were stunning and clearly out of my price range. Bayshore Blvd meanders for quite a while and had many folks walking, jogging, roller blading, or just gazing out onto the water. Note that the Blvd itself does not have parking so you would need to park on a side street and walk over. We did not go at night but imagine that the views would be nicer. I would not go out of your way to see Bayshore Blvd but if you have the opportunity to, by all means go.

“Scenic does not even start”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Scenic does not even start to say what the view looks like, not as long as the Nanchez Trace, but Bayshore is worth a drive. Start on Gulf to Bay and head north for the best effect, even better walk, roller blade or bike.

“Great To Walk, Jog, Bike or Skate”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Very, very long continuous sidewalk here, actually the longest uninterrupted sidewalk in the US. Pretty cool distinction!

It's has fantastic views of the the bay and downtown Tampa as well as some of the nicest homes in Tampa. This is more of a leisure or exercise experience. Also if you just want to take a look at some of Tampa's old style homes. The sidewalk goes from downtown Tampa all the way to the end of Bayshore.

There are no retail or convenience store stops along the route so you will need to plan ahead for refreshments (hydration). There are no bathroom facilities so empty that bladder before you venture out.

“Great for a Jog”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

This is the locals spot to jog and can usually be found packed with runners, walkers, rollerbladers and bicyclists. It's a great spot to catch an early morning sunrise over the downtown skyscape.
