Sunday in Hyde Park Village? Made for breakfast at Goody Goody, a walk through the newly renovated shopping district and on the first Sunday of the month a visit with the vendors at the Fresh Market. But tomorrow add to that the rare opportunity to tour some of the historic homes just steps away on the Old Hyde Park Home Tour. This year you’ll be able to tour six beautiful historic homes, some almost 100 years old on Fielding Avenue between Swann Avenue and Inman Avenue, with an added stop on Bayshore.  Add to that a visit to the Old Hyde Park Art Center built in 1899. This is one of the oldest buildings still in use in Tampa and through its lifetime has been home to a grammar school, a lunchroom, and a library. Your tour begins at the intersection of Fielding Avenue and Swann Avenue, with tickets $20 in advance, $25 at the door.

My thanks to Chandra Henthorne for taking the time to give us a little behind the scenes info which I know you’ll love hearing about. Enjoy the market, the tour and the holidays in Hyde Park Village.
