You Won't Be Bored in Tampa, Florida


A favorite brunch spot for women...

When Journeywoman asked about a favorite brunch spot that women would enjoy, the name 'Circles' came up in a few conversations. Housed in a 1920s bungalow, Circles' decor is best described as elegant simplicity. You'll find tables topped with white linen, and walls aesthetically graced with black-and-white photographs. Holiday lights adorning the windows lend the eatery a festive air. The food is varied enough to satiate a plethora of appetites. 50 lunch and dinner treats range from lobster bisque -- a hearty favorite with real chunks of lobster floating in a cream base -- to egg rolls, calamari, pasta, tuna dishes, meat, vegetarian specialties and Thai dishes. Open on Sundays for brunch it is a favorite with the locals.

Good Florida food and great fun...

Good casual fun! I live in Tampa and I'd like to tell other women travelling to my part of the world about a funky restaurant called Skippers Smokehouse Restaurant & Oyster Bar. This Tampa 'institution' focuses on Florida cuisine enhanced by the tastes of the Caribbean and Louisiana. Take a peek at their menu where you'll find everything from Clam Chowder and Caesar Salad to Grouper Sandwiches and Grilled chicken breasts. If you are travelling with kids of any age they will love the crazy architecture and decor of this place with its fun signs everywhere. This restaurant is also a music venue with yop entertainment bands playing outdoors in their back terrace space. Good food and great fun!

A History of the Women of Tampa...

Real Women of Tampa and Hillsborough County by Doris Weatherford

They created a civilized society long before Europeans arrived in the New World, helped establish Tampa as the nation's cigar capital, led Florida's first statewide suffrage movement, built ships during World War II, and pioneered movements in fields ranging from real estate development to social service that forged the community's character.

It's always a fun challenge for Journeywoman to discover worthwhile souvenirs under $10.00 to bring back for the folks at home. Here are a few finds from Tampa for girlfriends, boyfriends, little kiddies, teenagers (check out the Florida Flamingo Poop) and your more discerning family members...
