There Are More Strip Clubs in Tampa Than ...

1/28/2009 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's a fun fact for all football fans headed to Tampa Bay for the Super Bowl -- there are more breasts in that city than at KFC!

Strip Clubs

We did some extensive nudie bar investigating and found out there are a total of 43 strip clubs in Tampa. That's more than the city's hospitals (12), high schools (41), fire stations (21) or synagogues (13). The only place that rivals the clubs is McDonald's, which also comes in at 43.

If there's grass on the field, play ball!

I live in Tampa and that fact is definately not all together true, as that includes the surrounding areas. But, there are many strip clubs here. There are also great beaches, shopping, amusement parks, and many other things to do. And, you can't beat the weather so there is much more to Tampa than it's strippers!! I agree that you should definately try and stay the next weekend for Gasparilla!!! Bring on the pirates!!!! Arrrrrrr

1. Tampa
Similar to Atlanta but not as many skyscrapers and very spread out. The club areas are actually suburbs, Ybor City and Channelside. The area surrounding University Of South Florida is where you can get your car shot up, raped or killed.
Tampa rocks, get your mind right.

2. Tampa
The best city in Florida; Rated the 9th most dangerous city in the United States, due in large part to the area surrounding the University of South Florida, where crime rates are very high.

Most commonly known as the 'S.O.G.', the south of gandy region creates a squar landmass which is commonly ruled by the Port Tampa hood. South Tampa region goes all the way from macdill air force base up dale mabry highway till it reaches a short distance of gandy. From Gandy, the rest of the boundries are till Bayshore bulavard and than Weshore Bulavard, creating a 'squar' like area.

The area is shared beyond some gang members most commonly know from the D.P.G., P.I. Mob, Blood, and 8 Ball. The drug usage is not that much of a problem, marajuana is commonly sold and smoked as a relaxer or element of chilling. Zanex or 'Zannies' are the newest drug being handed out in the area but is only seen durring parties. The community is tight, everyone is familiar with everyone's drama and news. Enemies such as West Tampa and Carver City aren't much as a threat no more since more and more of the west tampa community is moving out of Monroe Middle School. Class of '10 had the most drama and is now seen as the future of South Tampa.

You forgot to mention all the hookers in Tampa. I used to live in Tampa/St. Pete areas when it was nice, but it's gone down hill the last 6-7 years. You can't help but, go down a major road and see a strip club or an adult video rental store. They even have them in little strip (no pun intended) malls right next to convenient stores and shops. Coming down 275 South from North Tampa and into Pinellas County, they are every where. Try driving down Ulmerton Road in Clearwater/Largo. There are more dumpy used car lots, adult video rental joints, strip bars and wing joints then you can imagine. Not to add the traffic, out-dated narrow highway system, and roads that should have been repaved years ago; as well as the crime. It seems like everything a "Bush" touches ends up in the crapper. (Jeb Bush was Governor.)

You can't compare Atlanta to Tampa. Atlanta cracked down on strip clubs years ago. The strip clubs that they do have in Atlanta are really classy. Visiting Tampa 2 years ago, I was suprised how dirty and run down it was. Looked like the entire place needs a pressure washing. Tampa - How about planting some palm trees and putting a little paint on down town.

wow, all of the people that have those experiences with the hookers and seedy car lots must have been visiting some family in bad neighborhoods because i don't see that. i have not seen a hooker in years. i guess you have to be in a certain place at a certain time. hmm, what were you doing?
