Visit Tampa Bay

Most people consider Florida as the butt of all jokes. We’re known for bath salts, hurricane parties and “Floridiots,” but we have some pretty unique features that makes us stand out from the rest.

1. Publix

Nothing beats a Publix chicken tender sub, a sweet tea and chocolate chip cookie.

2. Tijuana Flats

Taco Bell doesn’t even begin to compare. Plus, they acknowledge “taco Tuesday” as a regular occurrence.

3. Rainbow Sandals

Apart from going barefoot on a beach, we live in Rainbows year-round.

4. Weekends on the boat

Even if you don’t have a boat, you know someone who has a boat. In Florida, we get our boater’s license before we get our driver’s license.

5. Hurricane Parties

While everyone North of Florida gets snow days and blizzards, we have hurricane parties. Whenever school gets called off, we board up the windows and have a ragging house party until the storm has passed.

6. Frenchy’s

Clearwater Beach attracts the tourists, and what could be better than lunch at Frenchy’s.

7. College Rivalries

You either fear the spear or you chomp down on your enemies. Sadly, the Bulls, Canes and Knights don’t get too much recognition.

8. Festivals

No, not music festivals. Although, the annual Florida Strawberry Festival has a great lineup every single February and March.

9. Guy Harvey

We have Guy Harvey on everything: hats, shirts, Tervis, trucks.

10. Summer Concerts

Nothing beats standing or sitting in the humid Florida air listening to the music you love.

11. Gorgeous Sunsets

Besides being one of the lightning capitals of the United States, we’ve got some gorgeous sunsets.

Reputation aside, whether you’re a native or just visiting, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. While Florida isn’t for everyone, we love our state, crazy and all.

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reported that about 35.7% of 12th graders in the U.S. had used marijuana in the past year, and 11.8% reported daily use.
