Tampa Travel Guide

Located on Florida’s western-central coast, Tampa is a perfect destination, no matter what kind of fun you’re looking for.

Things to Do in Tampa

Thrill seekers should definitely check out Busch Gardens, with 300 acres of rides, shows, and animal exhibits. If you want more animal fun, check out Tampa Electric’s Manatee Viewing Center, or Big Cat Rescue, a sanctuary for big cats.

Check out the Henry B. Plant Museum for Florida history, or the Tampa Bay History Museum to learn more specifically about the history of the region. Kids will love the Glazer Children’s Museum, filled with workshops, science, and art -- all hands on and designed for kids 12 and under. Canoe through the Hillsborough River or lay out on the nearby beaches. Tampa has plenty of water-based activities as well.

If you’re looking for the eclectic shops and trendy cafes, head to Seminole Heights, full of locally-owned restaurants and bars as well. Ybor City is another popular neighborhood for its historic architecture, museums, and authentic Cuban food. Another hot-spot in the city is Davis Island, full of upscale dining and charming streets.

Tampa is a friendly city, with helpful locals.

A Local's Guide to Tampa Vacation Rentals

Tampa is Florida’s hip, urban blossoming Gulf Coast destination. With blue skies, eternal sunshine, a glistening waterfront, world-class chefs, and a family-friendly culture, Tampa is truly the perfect vacation destination.

Family-Friendly Activities

Tampa is truly a perfect family-friendly vacation destination. Tampa Bay is far more than just another Florida vacation destination. While it is home to a glorious waterfront, the city offers so much more than beaches. Feel the wind in your hair on a speedy roller coaster at Busch Gardens, visit your favorite MLB team during the off-season at Spring Training, explore unique marine life at the Florida Aquarium or take the kids for a splash at the Adventure Island Water Park.

Beyond the fun, Tampa Bay has a unique food scene that is ripe with Cuban culture and influence. In addition to Tampa’s Cuban culinary excellence, there is a new foodie scene emerging that focuses on fresh farm to table ingredients and unique recipes.

Day Trips

Just across the bay from Tampa, a mere half an hour drive away, sits St. Petersburg, Florida. St. Petersburg has been dubbed the “Sunshine City,” and for good reason, the city is a hub for fishing, golfing, and boating.
