    Tampa Bay is a large, natural harbor and estuary along the Gulf of Mexico on the west central coast of Florida, comprising Hillsborough Bay, Old Tampa Bay, Middle Tampa Bay, and Lower Tampa Bay. "Tampa Bay" is not the name of any municipality. This misconception probably stems from the names of several local professional sports franchises which seek to draw support from the entire Tampa Bay Area, the hub of which is the city of Tampa, Florida.
