Its ambitious development means you'll find an elegant and vibrant downtown. After exploring the city during the day, end your evening at one of Tampa's best restaurants or relax with a cocktail in one of the luxurious lounges.
But no matter how you spend your time here, make the most of your trip by following our guide to the best things to do in Tampa.
1. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
While Orlando gets most of the noise from theme parks, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay at the theme parks is also a train lover's paradise. The park currently has eight pads as well as a section dedicated to the Sesame Street attractions. Animal encounters are also a big part of the Busch Gardens experience – there are more than 200 different species in the park, from giraffes to zebras.
2. Tampa Riverwalk
The Tampa Riverwalk is a downtown boardwalk that is home to a variety of shops and restaurants. The 4.2-mile stretch is great for walking, biking, or even the Segway.
We recommend taking a walk here after dinner – at night the water in the bay shines thanks to the reflection of light from the surrounding buildings.
