Deep blue water, historic buildings, plenty of industrial land, year-round moderate temperatures, and mild weather – what more could film, television, commercial, and digital media production crews ask for?
Tampa and Hillsborough County’s filming locations run the gamut from beautiful historic buildings in Ybor City to breathtaking views of the waterfront and skyline from Bayshore Boulevard, the world’s longest continuous sidewalk.
