Tampa, Florida is looking forward to 2021. That’s the year the city will host the Super Bowl for the fifth time, the last being in 2009. A lot has changed since then, but there is more to be done.
According to Fox 13 in Tampa, new hotels, venues, and restaurants have been added over the last 10 years, along with the Riverwalk across 2.6 miles of the city. Tampa is also transforming its waterfront with a new project called Water Street. It will be a community of retail, residential and hotels, culture and education, which the city says will bring in more money than in 2009.
Visit Tampa, Tampa Bay Sports Commission and others are not stopping there. They are looking at other high-profile events and take lessons from them so Tampa is ready for its own event.
“We try to take what worked really well, and we try to make sure that each of them snowball,” said Rob Higgins, Executive Director at the Tampa Bay Sports Commission.
Organizers said they want to make sure they create a look and feel here that will create lifetime memories for visitors.
