Last week while I was in Tampa for the Outback Bowl I found a wonderful historic neighborhood...Hyde Park...needless to say I fell in LOVE with it! It's located on the bay in South Tampa... the streets are lined with HUGE old oaks trees drooping with spanish moss and gorgeous palm trees. I really loved looking at all the different types of palm trees and tropical plants...tropical plants and HUGE old oaks drooping with spanish moss...it was screaming OLD FLORIDA! The homes were all soooo unique in style and size...I was truly in HEAVEN! I told the hubs that I had found the neighborhood of my dreams...I was ready to move right in! The area had "Father of the Bride" written all over it...I LOVE that movie and the HOUSE in it...the movie could have been filmed right here in HYDE PARK. We drove around for a couple of hours looking during the day and then came back at night to see how it looked with all the Christmas lights...boy I'm sure glad we did...it was BEAUTIFUL!!! My pics are not the best...I think I was way to busy taking it all in and soaking up the beauty...believe me it looks sooooo much better than my pics show. There was a quaint little shopping area that we went to...did some shopping and had our NEW YEARS EVE lunch at a wonderful upscale restaurant...I will do another post on this area next. Take a look for yourself...I don't think you will be disappointed.
