Dive In Tampa Bay is the premier blog for all things local in the neighborhoods surrounding downtown Tampa. In addition to showcasing local businesses, artists, events and news – Dive In also provides engaging, entertaining and informative posts about a variety of topics that our readers care about.
Dive In is always interested in using guest posts from Bay area writers as long as the content fits our mission and style.
