The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida, Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Tampa Bay area or simply Tampa Bay after the body of water it surrounds, is a metropolitan area on the Gulf coast of west-central Florida. It includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater, as well as numerous other small municipalities in Pasco, Hernando, Pinellas, and Hillsborough counties. The population for the Tampa Bay area currently stands at 2,589,637; as of a July 4, 2005 estimate. It is experiencing urban sprawl and the area grows at an average of 20,000 to 40,000 residents every year, which is about 200,000 to 400,000 every 10 years. Most of the sprawl has occurred in the more rural areas because of more affordable land; such areas are Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Pasco County and Hernando County. The West Coast of Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico is considered a tourist destination as the weather is semi-tropical and the region contains significant natural beauty, including brilliant sunsets, exotic foliage, and attractive scenery. The Tampa Bay area contains three major public beaches. Coastal access and ports provide the opportunity to observe dolphins, manatees and other sea life, experience deep sea fishing, scuba diving, and join cruises to Gulf of Mexico destinations including Cozumel, Key West and the Cayman Islands.

Although usually referring to the Northern region of California state, as of 2000, the term bay area was rebranded as an adjective which means gay. This is likely due to the renowned gay population of this region as well as the sexual preference of the man who proudly created this term.
"Bay areaaaaaaaaaaa" = I am gay.
"Yo that is hella bay" = That's gay.
"Bay area chronic!" = I am gay and have smoked good weed in my hometown of San Francisco.

A place that, accept it or not, is the height of American insufferability. Meaning they believe that the place they are is the coolest and anyone who lives elsewhere and enjoys life is fooling themselves.
"Why don't those poor bastards realize if they thought and acted just like me they could truly be happy?"

PS I'm from there and call it Frisco just to piss the elitist off

Bay Area in Memphis is another name for Frayser, which is north of downtown and east of Raleigh. It is home to rappers such as Three Six Mafia, Frayser Boy, 8 Ball & MJG, and many others. Lil Wyte is NOT from Frayser. He is actually from Shebly Forest which is a rural area north of Frayser. He just hung out in Frayser sometimes so he claims he's from there, but dont let him fool you.

Bay Area in Cali is whack as hell. Some ppl like to make it seem hood, but in reality its not. Sure there may be some ghetto parts, but as a whole the Bay Area in Cali is mostly white & liberal. Home to a large gay population, and tree huggers. Im sorry but its tru and you know it. So stop hating on Bay Area Memphis.

What do ppl think about when they hear San Francisco??

What do ppl think about when they hear Memphis??

Bay Area in Memphis is 100X realer than Bay Area Cali.

Not just San Franscico. There are many Bay Area's including the:
Tampa Bay Area
Chesapeake Bay Area
Hudson Bay and so on.

Not known by most asshole Californians which believe the world revolves around them because 90% of television is set in California making them beleive that the rest of the country is full of the same cretins as they see everyday. Too arrogant, ignorant and egocentric to think outside of thier own little false reality. One of the many reasons the rest of the country prays that the Big One will one day wipe them from the face of the earth in a terrible and horrifying cataclism
The Chesapeake Bay Area
