Tampa is a great family destination. There are plenty of attractions for kids (and adults!) like Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, The Florida Aquarium, Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, and more. Besides the attractions, there are lots of natural parks and preserves to explore to get a glimpse at Florida’s wildlife.
With world class dining and shopping, Tampa is a great destination to experience new food and cultures. Make sure to visit Ybor City, which was created in the late 1800s around the Cuba cigar-rolling industry. It now has a vibrant nightlife with music and dancing. Hyde Park is an upscale shopping and dining district with lots of boutiques.
Although there are plenty of things in town to keep you busy, if you decide to head to the beach it’s only 30 minutes away. Take a day and relax on the sand or stop at Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The coast is close enough that you can take a day trip and be back in Tampa for dinner.
And there are always free things to do in Tampa as well, so let’s pack and go!
