The struggling Channelside complex is situated along the water on the southern edge of downtown, near the Port of Tampa. In recent years, it has fallen on hard times and many tenants have moved out, leaving only Hooters and Splitsville luxury bowling as its major tenants. Until a new buyer is found, the once vibrant complex remains in limbo and is probably not worth a visit unless you're in the area anyway.

Next to Tampa's cruise port on Garrison Channel, Channelside is near the Florida Aquarium, the Tampa Bay History Center and the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

The surrounding area, known as the Channelside district, is home to a number of new apartment, condo and loft developments.
