Temple Terrace may just be the perfect location if you want easy access to major highways of Tampa Bay as well as Orlando. Located just at the eastern edge of Tampa Bay, it also is adjacent to University of South Florida and home to Florida College. A City in itself, with a population of over 25,000, it still has a small city feel and plans to keep it that way. While incorporated within Hillsborough County, Temple Terrace Florida likes to keep its distinction and sense of community. What gives Temple Terrace a “small town” feel are its bike trails, resident participation with its creative community events, long winding tree-lined streets (Tree City, USA), loyalty and personal pride. The people who live in Temple Terrace love Temple Terrace. And in addition there is still a sophisticated golf club lifestyle that many residents share within the Historic golf course community as well as easy access to urban amenities.
A true hidden gem on the banks of the Hillsborough River, Temple Terrace is always conscious to keep thriving and redeveloping itself. Rejuvenation is forever in focus in order to maintain a thriving city with tremendous energy and a quality of life for its residents. For instance Temple Terrace is designated as a Multimodal Transportation District in Florida because the roads are shared with cars, bikes, scooters, shuttle buses and golf carts. This encouragement to explore alternative modes of transportation is welcomed by its forward thinking residents.
Almost 50% of its residents hold a college degree and friendly to all ages of people. Architecture within the community has a history of character with Mediterranean Revival homes and attracts both young and old alike. The area is brimming with oak trees, pine trees, old cypress and Hillsborough River wildlife making Temple Terrace a particularly green space city ripe for boating, canoeing and fishing. If you are an active club joiner, there are more than 2 dozen clubs/organizations to become involved in.
