Southeast Tampa Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The homes of Southeast Tampa are varied in style and size. It is a neighborhood of elegance and comfortable living in one of Tampa’s most desirable locations. It is an established neighborhood with massive trees shading lawns, streets, and sidewalks.
Southeast Tampa includes McKay Bay and extends to Crosstown Expressway and Peter O. Knight Airport. Public transit serves the area.
Explore the neighborhood from north to south and discover what makes this such a desirable neighborhood. At the north end, on the mainland, is the Convention Center and St. Pete Times Forum. The Forum is the home of the Tampa Lightning NHL team and the site of many family events, concerts, and children’s shows.
Tampa General Hospital is on the north end of Davis Island. Close to the hospital are a tennis complex, Marjorie Park, and Stageworks—a popular theatre company and one of Tampa’s oldest.
At the south end of the island are the Seaplane Basin and the Davis Island Yacht Club. The club sponsors many events, including Thursday Night Races, and programs for all skill levels.
Leaving Davis Island, one doesn’t have to go far to find the top sites in Tampa. Much of Tampa’s early history centered around the West Kennedy Boulevard area. The University of Tampa is here, with the Henry B. Plant Museum on the southeast corner of the campus. One of Tampa’s most iconic sites sits proudly on the bluffs—the Old Tampa Bay Hotel. With its Moorish architecture, it is unmistakable and a National Historic Landmark. Dinner cruises leave from the hotel.
Across the river from the hotel is Lykes Gaslight Park. Many of the finest outdoor concerts are held here. The Tampa Theatre and Museum of Art are only blocks from the park.
