I tired this, Type > Fit Headline, but there is still so much adjusting to do after the fact.  Just seeing if there is a better way.  Thanks so much in advance!

For all three lines to be the exact same width- so obviously Tampa and Bay would be a larger font and with more spacing in between letters.

Assuming there are always just two or three lines of text, I'd just do it manually in the Character palette.

 

If that is not desired, you may have a look at a post from yesterday. Adobe Express is recommended (specifically its dynamic text frames).

With a graphical object like that it's usually easier to use three separate lines of point text and resize the individual lines of text as desired. Some people may choose to convert the text objects to outlines in order to get more fine tune control of letter sizes and spacing.

 

Variable fonts that have weight and width axes can be pretty handy for these kinds of projects. The boldness and widths of letters can be changed more naturally than the old bush league tactic of artifically squeezing or stretching the letters. Variable fonts can preserve the harmony of vertical and horizontal letter stroke thickness. The results look more professional. If I was using a variable font with a width axis I'd probably still put "Tampa Bay" on one line and simply make the letters taller to fill the vertical space.

Kathryn, if I may ask, why a desire for a shape different to a heart?
