|I wish this was my view!|
I love my house but the best part about the neighborhood is the neighbors. I have met so many people that have become close friends. I joined a Yoga Group with 8 women. It is held above the garage of the instructor, in the neighborhood. I joined for health reasons and I have stayed for 9 years because these women are incredible. Each one is strong and beautiful. I think we invented Laughing Yoga!
The neighborhood association has a strong city presence. In the last few years it has splintered a bit but all groups go through changes. The point is that there are a lot of passionate people that live here that care.
When I first moved here the restaurants were few and far between but now we have gems! The Front Porch is around the corner and when they have live music I can enjoy it from my backyard. Ella’s and The Refinery are the newest in the ‘hood but fabulous. Independent Bar has great beer and atmosphere and speaking of atmosphere Taco Bus has it in spades along with great Mexican food.

It is a great walking neighborhood too, people walking with people, people walking with dogs, people walking with music, people saying Hi and stopping to chat. Heck I can’t go into my neighborhood grocery store without seeing someone I know.
This weekend Seminole Heights is having their Home Tour, Sunday April 3 from 11:30-5:00. Tickets are $10.00 ahead and $15.00 at the door. I highly recommend making a day of it. You start at the Garden Center on Central between Hillsborough and Hanna. I will be a volunteer at a house on Branch. Stop in and say hello!
I hope you will share what you love about your neighborhood in the comments below!
