The Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association’s annual home tour is the best way to get to know the historic district, and it returns for its 22nd year on Sunday, April 3.

2022’s tour will start at the Seminole Garden Center at 5800 N Central Ave. in Tampa. In addition to visiting homes throughout the neighborhood, this year’s tour will also include stops at Front Porch & Bart's Tavern and the Seminole Heights United Methodist Church—which celebrated its 100th anniversary last year.

Tickets for this year’s tour cost $20 and can be purchased through Paypal at oldseminoleheights.org. To buy a ticket, you must select a scheduled time from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., as tours begin every half-hour.

The self-guided walking tour will feature historic bungalows, mid-century, and new-build homes that date from the early 1900s to the mid-twentieth century. And to make things a little safer for cyclists, TPD Bike Patrol will be stationed in the neighborhood while the Seminole Heights Bicycle Club will provide maps to those who prefer to bike the tour.

Masks will be required at all indoor locations— whether you’re inside of someone’s home or grabbing a drink at the tavern.

Notably, this year’s rendition will include a stop at the office of Timothy Burke, a Creative Loafing Tampa Bay contributor who the New York Times once said is "known among sports journalists for his ability to capture the moment — whether as a still, a video clip or in his favored format, a GIF — better, faster, more frequently and from more sports events than just about anyone."

A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Gracepoint's Coffee Shop, an outreach and engagement center that helps those struggling with homelessness.
