Small city north-east of Tampa, Florida.

Built on what was once an orange grove, Temple Terrace has become quite an interesting city. Due to it's close proximity to Tampa, it is quite urbanized in most parts but still retains the tranquil areas of a typical riverside suburb. Population consists mainly of upper middle-class families that have been in the area for quite awhile and some students from the University of South Florida living in sparse appartment complexes or townhomes.

Fair warning: If you're driving through Temple Terrace on your way somewhere else exceeding the speed limit or doing anything stupid and/or illegal isn't recommended. The local police have strict quotas to meet, and don't quite adhere to the 5-Over rule.
