You are finally getting the opportunity to vacation in Tampa. Maybe you have missed the opportunity by always going to Orlando or Miami when you were visiting Florida. However, Tampa has a wide variety of activities from the exciting to the relaxing. With all of these choices, it is easy to be unsure which attractions to visit and which should be avoided.
To help you make the most of your Tampa vacation, we have found three of the very best attractions in the area.
If you are going to be in the Tampa area for any amount of time, you have to make a least one visit to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. This is an incredible African-themed amusement park with an incredible zoo. It is possible to spend the day getting sick on roller coasters then spend the rest of day admiring beautiful wildlife. With the large selection of theme parks in the Florida area, this one is typically not as busy as the Orlando parks.
If the Florida heat is getting to you, you might want to make a quick detour to the Florida Aquarium. Here you can get out of the heat and enjoy over 20,000 maritime creatures that will delight and mesmerize you. If you have been wanting to get under the sea and enjoy some time with sharks, rays, and dolphins, this is the number one place to visit on an incredibly hot day.
Finally, if you would like a little bit of education on your next vacation a visit to the Museum of Industry and Science. This is a great place to bring the kids for some incredible hands-on science exhibits. In addition, there is a beautiful butterfly garden to sit back and relax and enjoy an afternoon in solitude or some peace and quiet with the kids.
