Channelside refers to the Channel district of Tampa, adjacent to downtown Tampa, where the Port of Tampa is located. This location has become popular among students and professionals in recent years. Beautiful new, upscale apartments line the streets of Channelside. This does tend to be a pricier district than some of Tampa, since it is close to schools like University of Tampa, the downtown businesses, and the Channelside entertainment complex. The Channelside entertainment complex is home to numerous bars, restaurants, and even a bowling alley that doubles as a bar. This trendy locale is in high demand, so be sure to start looking early if this is your targeted search area.
