Rolling hills, the curvy Hillsborough River, and amazing oak trees – welcome to Temple Terrace, Florida! Temple Terrace takes its name from the Temple orange – a hybrid that results from crossing a mandarin orange with a tangerine. One thing’s for sure – Temple Terrace is as sweet as its namesake.
While the city is no longer filled with the Temple orange groves that once grew here in abundance, this dynamic community has much to offer those looking for apartments in the Tampa metro area. Temple Terrace is rich with possibilities – from outdoor adventures on the river to nearby Lettuce Lake Regional Park to Adventure Island, there’s no end to things to do in the Florida sunshine. The University of South Florida is adjacent to Temple Terrace, adding even more vitality to the community.
When you’ve located the ideal Temple Terrace apartment to rent, you’ll be less than 10 miles from Tampa and beautiful Tampa Bay. And if the gorgeous Gulf Coast beaches are calling, you’re no more than an hour from white sands and the clear, blue ocean. Would you rather be golfing? Temple Terrace is home to one of the oldest golf courses in the Tampa Bay region. Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club was established in 1922 by famous architect Tom Bendelow.
From your Temple Terrace apartment, you’ll be minutes away from some of Florida’s most popular locations, including Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the Florida Aquarium, the USF Sun Dome, the Museum of Science and Industry, the Raymond James Stadium (home of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the USF Bulls), Florida College, and the Tampa International Airport.
As a shopper’s delight, Temple Terrace is near the amazing shops and restaurants located in downtown Tampa, including Victorian Village, as well as Channelside Bay Plaza. This outdoor plaza is a beautiful location to shop, dine, catch a movie, and enjoy the nightlife.
