In an effort to promote local businesses and reinvest in our community, the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber has designed #Buybeachesfirst, a shop local movement.
When you shop with local beach merchants, more of your money stays close to home; supporting parks, beach attractions and other things that make this coastal community a desired place to live.
