My wife and I went to Tampa Bay last year for the first time ever.
We started traveling in our RV a couple of years ago and this was our first chance to visit Florida.
We decided to go to Tampa, because my wife has family that lives close by. We were convinced that summer was the best time to visit Florida, because we wanted to see the beach and go to the ocean. It would have been nice if one of our friends would have taken the time to explain how incredibly hot and humid it can get in the Tampa area. The average summer temperature was 93 degrees during the week that we visited. My wife and I stayed in an RV park while we were in Tampa. It was on one side of a very long and tall bridge. The bridge is one of the tallest bridges in the whole country. Driving the RV across the bridge was very nerve-wracking and I wanted to throw up my lunch. After we made it to the RV park, we found out that they only have 30 amp service. Our large RV with three slides and an upstairs bedroom uses 50 amp service. We were unable to run both of the air conditioners and it was impossible to keep the house cool. Both of us learned a very important lesson about visiting Tampa during The summer season. If we ever return to that city, we certainly will wait until the weather is much more mild and cool. I honestly don’t know how people can live in that environment happily.
