Named after the temple oranges that originally graced
the rolling terraces, the City of Temple Terrace has
been amazing residents and visitors since 1925 when it
was promoted as Florida’s first golf course community.
Today, Temple Terrace captures a small-town lifestyle
with urban amenities in an ideal setting – one of the
region’s best kept secrets. Generations of families and
new residents of all ages and cultures embrace the closeknit,
traditional hometown spirit of Temple Terrace.
Historic Mediterranean Revival homes from the 1920s
intermingle with more modern homes and apartments
along tree-canopied streets to provide a variety of
housing for all lifestyles.
