In tune with the vibrant and ever-changing colors of sun-drenched skies and surrounding bays, the city of Tampa sings out like a glistening, world-class destination on Florida’s Sun Coast.

Made up of diverse neighborhoods and thriving business districts, the origin of Tampa’s growth stemmed from a burgeoning cigar industry that, in turn, spared the building of railroads and shipping ports during the late 19th century.

Tampa has since grown to a population of over 300,000 and continues to thrive. It boasts the state’s largest seaport, top universities, sprawling riverfront parks, excellent museums, and state-of-the-art arenas that are home to professional NHL, MLB, and NFL sports teams. As a diverse culinary mecca, Tampa offers everything from an Authentic Cuban sandwich to modern gourmet seafood specialties. All of this and more umbrellaed by the swaying palms and azure skies of its beautiful tropical climate.

Browsing these pages of exquisite imagery captured by photographer Matthew Paulson, it’s astounding to reflect upon the times when 16th-century pirates roamed these waters, and to ponder the historical timeline that culminated into the brilliant jewel that is Tampa today.
