Southeast Seminole Heights Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Southeast Seminole Heights is a large neighborhood in Tampa, Florida. The neighborhood is framed by Florida Avenue to the west, Hillsborough Avenue to the north, 15th Avenue to the east, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr Boulevard to the south.
Southeast Seminole Heights has some easy access to some of the best destinations in the Tampa area. One of the largest of those destinations is Raymond James Stadium. Raymond James Stadium is the home of the professional football team the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is also the home of the University of South Florida’s Bulls football team. Throughout football season the stadium is packed with cheering fans for both teams which have great support around the region. The stadium is also used for many major events, shows, and concerts.
Directly across Dale Mabry Highway from Raymond James Stadium is George M. Steinbrenner Field. The field, named after the legendary owner of the New York Yankees, is where the Yankees practice during spring training. Even though the Yankees are the division rival of the home team, Tampa Bay Rays, they still get a great deal of support from the many residents in the area who are originally from the New York area.
About a mile away from Southeast Seminole Heights is the Fun Land Drive-In Theater. This blast from the past is a popular theater presenting some of the latest movies for the many visitors who decide to pull up in their cars and enjoy a movie. The theater is also used early in the day as a flea market on the weekends. The flea market provides a wide variety of items for purchase at a huge discount over what would be paid in an area mall or shopping center. The movie theater itself is a great glimpse into Tampa’s past.
