Tempted by Tampa

Tampa’s sun-dappled beaches, Cuban history, lively nightlife, and theme parks make it an excellent place to pack your agenda with hour after hour of fun, or just take a slow, relaxing cruise down the coast.

Jump in the balmy water of the Gulf or Mexico, or stay in town and enjoy all the entertainment Tampa Bay throws at you.

Tampa favorites

Tampa is known for its plethora of theme parks where families can get their share of wildlife, thrills, and waterparks.

Ybor City

Explore this historic Cuban neighborhood for treats for everyone. It’s home to the famous Cuban bakery, La Segunda, as well as the world’s oldest running cigar factory, JC Newman’s Cigar Co.

Tampa Riverwalk

With cotton candy sunsets and balmy nights, it’s hard to beat the Tampa Riverwalk for a romantic night on the Hillsborough River. Hit the aquarium, ride water bikes, or take a pirate-themed water taxi for day trips.

Busch Gardens

The favorite local amusement park is an African animal-themed park, complete with terrifying roller coasters, wildlife exhibits from different parts of Africa, and seasonal entertainment events for all ages.
