Tampa Bay is a large natural harbor and estuary along the Gulf of Mexico on the western coast of Florida, made up of Old Tampa Bay, Hillsborough Bay, McKay Bay, and New Tampa Bay. It is bounded by Manatee County on the south, Pinellas County on the west, and Hillsborough County on the east. Three prominent cities are located along the shores of the bay, Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge crosses the mouth of Tampa Bay.
The term “Tampa Bay” is also informally used as the name of the entire metropolitan area encompassing Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and several smaller cities. The Tampa Bay Area settlers were originally from Cuba and Italy. The Native Americans from this region are known as Seminoles. A town in Pinellas County, named Seminole, Florida, was subsequently named after the Native Americans who lived in the region.
