The Fresh Market
A quick drive West on Swann Avenue and then briefly south on Henderson Blvd. and you will arrive at The Fresh Market – high quality meats, fresh seafood and some of the best local, organic produce one can buy. Much like the original location in Greensboro, North Carolina, its an epicurean delight.
Henry B. Plant Museum
Located on the south wing of Plant Hall at the University of Tampa on Kennedy Boulevard, the Henry Plant Museum celebrates the building in which it is housed, the former Tampa Bay Hotel (a U.S. National Historic Landmark). Originally opened in 1891 by Henry B Plant, it was situated at the terminus of his rail line. The museum is open to the public every day except Monday and major holidays.
Bern’s Steak House
Founded in 1956, Bern’s Steakhouse is an iconic steak restaurant famous for its food, much of which is organic and grown especially for Bern’s, but also for its massive wine list, the largest of any restaurant in the world. Diners can take a tour of the wine cellar which houses a stunning wine collection including depression-era French red wine, pre-war Sauternes, and Madiera from the 17th century. A destination for wine aficionados, Bern’s is a one-of-a-kind experience.
Its easy to see why Hyde Park is one of South Tampa’s most sought after neighborhoods. If you are looking to relocate to the Tampa Bay area or seeking the right neighborhood in which to build your dream home, consider Hyde Park one of your best options.
