Today, Tampa has a population of more than 340,000 people, and is part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL metropolitan region — the second largest metropolitan area in the state. Tampa was ranked as the 5th best outdoor city by Forbes in 2008, and has been called a top city for "twenty-somethings."
Local tourist attractions include Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Adventure Island and the Florida Aquarium. One of the most well-known and anticipated events in Tampa is the annual celebration of Gasparilla, which includes various festivities throughout the year.
