Temple Terrace is tucked into the eastern side of Tampa and south of the New Tampa area. Temple Terrace has a long rich history from the Native Americans that lived in the area until the Spanish conquistadors followed the Hillsborough River and started homesteading the land. The city was named after the hybrid "Temple" oranges.
Temple Terrace is centrally located because of its close proximity to Tampa Bay's three major highways. It is bordered by Interstate 275 on the west, Interstate 75 on the east, Interstate 4 on the south, and Fletcher Avenue and the University of South Florida on the north. The city borders rural Thonotosassa on the east and New Tampa on the north east. Temple Terrace is conveniently located to Tampa/St. Petersburg area, Orlando and the sparkling west Florida beaches.
