Temple Terrace


Main Street redevelopment is the big story in Temple Terrace, the Hillsborough County city within the city of Tampa. City leaders are working to revitalize the city's main shopping district to set the stage for a mixture of office, retail, restaurant and residential. Many of the 26,000 residents work nearby at the University of South Florida and enjoy easy access to the bucolic Hillsborough River as well as the intimacy of the Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club. The club is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
