Just 30 miles from beautiful Tampa, Florida, Wimauma is perfectly situated as a base to explore the popular Tamba Bay area, and everything this part of Florida has to offer. From the big city amenities of Tampa to quaint seaside towns like Tarpon Springs and a wide variety of outdoors activities, Wimauma is a perfect jumping off point to see it all. Between Tampa and Sarasota, Wimauma was founded by Captain C. H. Davis in the early 1900s. Its unique name has an adorable origin, as he combined the first letters of the names of this three daughters, Wilma, Maude, and Mary. You can explore this beautiful area with the added flexibility of a mobile accommodation when you book an RV in Wimauma, Florida.
