Buy Beaches First

Buy Beaches First is designed to promote Tampa Bay Beach businesses and communities. We connect community-minded shoppers to local products and services.

Spend an evening with great food, friends and live music all with a waterfront view. The first weekend of October will kick-off two local events, with a new and safe spin, that will bring some excitement to the beaches. On Friday, October 2nd grab a to-go taste from a local participating restaurant and book your own private plot of land to enjoy live music from the Titans of Rock a Tributes to Bon Jovi & Journey. If you love local food and music, this is the way to begin your weekend.

Driving down Gulf Boulevard might look a little different recently. Outside of the beach businesses you will catch a brightly colored yellow sign reminding visitors and locals to Buy Beaches First
