Davis Islands can hardly be considered just a neighborhood of South Tampa. It is so much more than that. Cross the bridge onto DI (the only way to reach the islands by land) and the skyscrapers of Downtown fade out and you are immediately whisked away to the small town that isDavisIslands. Expect all of the comforts of tight-knit community in a place where the people are friendly, the food is good and the atmosphere is always as inviting as a coolFloridabreeze.
