Once upon a time, there was a small village by the sea in Florida. The village was known for their harvest of sweet and juicy guavas, so much so that they became famous throughout the land. As the village grew larger and became a city, they decided to give themselves a new name.

One day, the citizens of the city held a meeting to discuss what their new name should be. They thought about what made their city special and unique. One citizen stood up and said, “We may not be as big as New York or Los Angeles, but we are big in our own way. Just like our guavas are big and juicy, we are the ‘Big Guava‘!”

Everyone in the room cheered, and the name quickly caught on. The city now proudly called themselves the ‘Big Guava‘ and became known as such throughout the state.

Years passed, and the city grew even larger and more prosperous. However, the nickname ‘Big Guava‘ eventually faded away, and people started referring to the city by the name of one of its most prominent landmarks – the Tampa Bay.

Nowadays, the city is simply known as Tampa, but its legacy as the ‘Big Guava‘ lives on as a nod to its rich history and the fruit that once put it on the map.
