Our Day in University of Tampa

Play Video

We started off the day with a quick trip to Spaddy’s Coffee for fan-favorite: lattes. We couldn’t forget to snap a few pics in front of their “love” mural while we were there!

Lunch at Harvest Bowl is a MUST! Build your own bowl or order one of their signatures, either way, it’s absolutely delicious.

Next, we were on the hunt for unique finds at Vintage Post. Their unique and repurposed pieces are perfect for any home décor project. Swinging over to The C House, we grabbed a few drinks on their outdoor patio before ending the day. Oh, and we couldn’t forget to take a few extra mural pics while we were out.
