Favorite thing: Davis Islands is a neighborhood of two connected islands, very close to downtown and the Port of Tampa. The two islands that form Davis Islands were originally called Little Grassy Key and Big Grassy Key, but they were greatly expanded in the 1920s with fill from the Tampa Bay shipping channels. The neighborhood is named after a developer named D.P. Davis, who owned the islands before they were subdivided for neighborhoods. Originally three islands separated by narrow canals, Davis Islands became two islands when the small Peter O. Knight Airport was constructed. Davis Islands is also home to the Tampa General Hospital and numerous historic buildings such as the Palace of Florence Apartments.
