Tampa was originally inhabited by the Tocobaga and the Pohoy. It was briefly explored by Spanish explorers in the early 16th century but no permanent American or Europeans lived in Tampa until the early 1800’s. The United States Army established Fort Brooke on the Hillsborough River in 1824. The first residents of Tampa settled near the fort to gain protection from the Seminole population. In the 1880’s the city began to grow with the development of the railroad, the discovery of phosphate and the growing cigar industry. By the early 1900s Tampa had grown into an important Florida city.
Tampa was recently voted as the 5th city in the United States for best city to visit outdoors. Tampa is home to a number of sports teams such as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League, the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League and the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League. Major league spring training brings many teams to the Tampa area. Tampa is also home to two large universities, The University of Tampa, and The University of South Florida.
There are a number of museums and attractions to visit in Tampa including the Children’s Museum, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Tampa Museum. Tampa is also home to Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo and the Florida Aquarium. Every year Tampa celebrates Gasparilla, a festival that includes an invasion of ships from Tampa Bay and parades of pirates throughout the city in which some of our lawyers (Mr. Singer and Mr. Barlow) take part as members of local Krewes.
