Tampa started its existence as 'Fort Brooke' in January 1824, an isolated frontier outpost in the wilderness of Florida Territory. After the Seminole Indians, the local inhabitants since centuries have been removed, Europeans started to settle there. In 1849, four years after Florida became the 27th state, the town was officially incorporated as the 'Village of Tampa'.

Today (in 2017) Tampa has a population of almost 380,000 inhabitants, it is the largest city in the Tampa Bay Area, more than 3 million people live in the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL Metro Area.

The economy of the area is based on service, retail, finance, insurance, tourism and transportation. Port Tampa Bay, which is located south of the city near Tampa's Channel District, is the largest port in Florida, it serves container ships and is one of the major US departure ports for cruise lines leaving for the western Caribbean.
