But the arrival of the cigar industry in the 1880’s allowed Tampa to grow into a thriving city. By the early 1900’s more than 30,000 people lived in Tampa.

Tampa Bay, FL, Weather and Climate

Like most of the Tampa Bay area, Tampa is blessed with a mild subtropical climate. Great air conditioning is a must-have in the region, as the cooling season is essentially all year long. Unlike most of Florida, however, it is not uncommon for Tampa to see a few days dip below freezing during the winter months.
