Oldsmar?? That's a strange name for a city! Well many Floridians may not know this but in 1913 Oldsmar was originally named R.E. Olds on the Bay after R.E. Olds "the automobile maker" It switched names once to Tampa Shores in 1927 then back to Oldsmar 1937. Oldsmar went through many ups and downs through the years it used to have traffic from people driving from St.Pete on their way to Tampa however once the Gandy and Courtney Campbell bridges where built traffic died down. Then the city's main source of Traffic came from the Horse track, Tampa Bay Downs. Throughout the 1980's Oldsmar was known for the racetrack and the flea market. Today both are still up and running but Oldsmar reputation has changed to a trendy up in coming city. It's location is convenient to Tampa and the Beaches, it has great city parks on the bay and it looks like every other day a new restaurant or speciality store is opening! Not to mention it still has a close community neighborhood feel to it. So whether you are visiting, moving or just driving through Oldsmar take a moment to have some fun!
