Bloomingdale Real Estate Information

The 20,000-person town of Bloomingdale is one of many popular suburban communities in Tampa and is situated fifteen miles southeast of the main city proper. Easily reached from the downtown business district via the I-75 interstate, most residents of Bloomingdale are able to commute to their workplace via a short drive that includes a transfer from the I-75 to the I-4 or Route 618.

Residents of Bloomingdale have come to value the weather associated with the region. Like much of the rest of the Tampa Bay region, Bloomingdale experiences weather typical of a humid, subtropical climate zone. In the summers, the community faces very warm and humid conditions while the spring and fall are more moderate and feature very pleasant temperatures. Relative to many other communities on the east coast, Bloomingdale’s winter season is quite warm with averages only dropping to the low sixties. Residents have come to embrace the noticeable change in seasons while avoiding the unsavory experience of facing radical changes in temperature, precipitation, and other natural events.

Bloomingdale Square is the town’s primary shopping area and hosts a number of convenient grocery stores and other essential places to run errands. The much larger Westfield Brandon is situated in the nearby Brandon community northeast of Bloomingdale. The center features a number of restaurants, including Starbucks, The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, and a food court that offers a number of express and take-out options. More importantly, a number of high-end or national brand retailers, flagshipped by a large Macy’s store, also have stores to serve the residents of Bloomingdale, including Apple Store, Bakers, bebe, Books-A-Million, Cache, Clark's, Coldwater Creek, Dick's Sporting Goods, Fossil, Lucky Brand Jeans, Mixx, Sephora, Quiksilver, Tilly's, Torrid, The Walking Company, and White House/Black Market. Westfield Brandon also houses a twenty-theater movie complex that serves as a primary source of entertainment for many of Bloomingdale’s families.

Bloomingdale West Park and Culbreath Park are two of Bloomingdale’s favorite parks and recreational areas. Residents can enjoy warm afternoons and tropical breezes by taking a jog around the park or walking their pets around the block. The Bloomingdale Golfers Club Golf Course is another popular attraction that brings together golfers not only from Bloomingdale, but Brandon and several other nearby localities.
