Vacations in Tampa

The area and getting around

A thriving metropolitan area bursting with activities

Tampa Bay encompasses four cities: Tampa, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and Brandon, all of which border the largest open-water estuary on Florida's west coast (covering nearly 400 square miles). The outdoor recreational opportunities alone provide reason enough to visit the region, but if water sports aren't your thing, the Tampa Bay area is packed with many other exciting experiences to satiate adrenaline junkies, shopaholics and bar junkies alike.

At the heart of Tampa Bay, we find a city full of character

The city of Tampa is at the heart of all this excitement. Nestled at the mouth of the bay, it is a mid-sized city full of character. The Channelside District is nestled right in the heart of Tampa and is crammed full of fabulous restaurants and shops. Ybor City, northeast of downtown, is Tampa’s historic and hip neighbourhood, popular among the younger crowd. Seminole Heights on the west side of Tampa boasts a hearty art scene and scrumptious hole-in-the-wall restaurants.

Travellers and activities

Tampa for families

Tampa has dozens of world-class attractions that are brilliant for family days out. ZooTampa at Lowry Park, Florida Aquarium, and Busch Gardens Tampa are arguably the most fun and savvy. ZooTampa boasts 60 acres of animals, with wonderfully recreated African and Asian animal habitats, aviaries, a primate area, and huge birds of prey. Florida Aquarium boasts the country’s finest collection of sharks, stingrays, alligators, and other slippery, swimming things to delight the whole family. Busch Gardens Tampa is home to heart-lurching roller coasters, spectacular climbing complexes for kids, superb musical entertainment, and a day out your kids will remember long after you are gone!

Tampa for beach vacations

The St. Petersburg-Clearwater Barrier Islands boast approximately 35 miles of gorgeous white sand beaches lapping the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The beaches in the area are undoubtedly some of the best in the entire country, winning awards for everything from sand quality to environmental stewardship, Clearwater Beach has been ranked as the No. 1 city beach in the Gulf region. This area is one of the few untamed beaches in all of Florida – you'll feel like you're on a desert island!

Tampa is home to the “world’s longest continuous sidewalk”, at 4.5 miles in length – a gorgeous palm-tree lined recreational path just begging to be explored!
