What Tampans googled this year

2023’s Google Year in Search is out — check out what Tampans were searching the most this year (it might surprise you).

A search bar that says "What did Tampa Bay residents google most this year?" overlayed a photo of downtown Tampa.

Did you search “Roman Empire” this year? So did the rest of the US — but this is what Tampans were googling on a more local level.

It may come as no surprise that Travis Kelce was one of the most-searched people on Google this year, but what about the fact that the Tampa area was the only place in the US with “lagoon near me” as a top trending search?

2023’s Google Year in Search is out, and its local search function provides an interesting peek into our city’s queries. Take a look at what we were searching most this year (plus, our answers to your searches — we may not be Google, but we know a thing or two about where to find local hot spots).

Unique local searches

  • Top trending “tour” search in Tampa | “Taylor Swift | “The Eras Tour”
  • Top trending “TV show” search in Tampa | “The Last of Us”
  • Top trending “versus” search in Tampa | “PSG vs Al Nassr”

The fact that “TBAYtoday” wasn’t a top local search only hurts our feelings a little bit. There’s always next year.
