I have been living in Tampa for over 15 years, and there is so much to do and see in the city.
I must admit that I haven’t seen a lot of the attractions that are available here because I know that I will eventually get to them one day.
For instance, there is an adorable streetcar called the TECO Line that I have always wanted to ride. I see it all the time, but I have never attempted to get on it. Well, that changed last Summer, when my mom came to visit me. I wanted to show her around town without having to walk outside because she’s not used to the heat. And of course, it gets pretty hot in Tampa, especially during the Summer months. The temperature can easily be in the mid to upper 90s and the humidity makes it feel like you can’t breathe. So, I thought that riding the streetcar would be a great way for my mom to see some of the city. I did some research and found out that the car has air conditioning. Of course, the streetcar has A/C, it’s similar to a bus or any public transportation in the city. Having A/C will improve the ride and make the passengers a lot more comfortable. To be honest, if the streetcar didn’t have A/C, I probably would have found another way to show my mom around Tampa. Anyway, the ride was short, but she loved every minute of it, and I am glad that she was able to sit inside an air conditioned streetcar while she saw pieces of our beautiful city.
