Since that time tourism has contributed hugely to Tampa’s economy along with phosphate mining, citrus processing, shrimping industries and shipping. You are in the commercial and industrial hub of Western Florida, remember?

However, industrially affected Tampa is, it is the basis of its prosperity, and locals have found better places to swim like St Petersburg to the north or Clearwater to the east.
Despite industrialization, Tampa is constantly attracting new residents, therefore its population is extremely multicultural. Just imagine the ethnic mosaic includes 67.2 percent White, 26.3 percent African American, 0.6 percent American Indian and Alaska Native, 3.6 percent Asian and on. With average annual growth of approximately 97,000 residents per year the city's population hit a mark of 4 million people in 2007.
The first inhabitants of Tampa were the members of the Seminole Indian tribe that relocated there from northern Florida and the soldiers that had to control the reservation. It remained a military town until the 1880s when Tampa was boosted by immigrants from Cuba, Spain and Sicily. Today the most of Tampa's past is reflected in its architecture even though post-modern touches dominate the city. Attractions include;
- Sulphur Springs Water Tower stands 214ft (65m) tall, with a foundation 45ft (14m) deep which makes it visible from the city limits
