Top 5 things to do in Tampa!
1. Tampa Riverwalk
As the sun traverses the sky from east to west, the Riverwalk serves as a hub for art, leisurely lunches, performances, fitness and more. By nightfall music plays and couples walk hand-in-hand under the same sky. The 2.4-mile Tampa Riverwalk walkable, bikeable and Segway-able path connecting culture and entertainment. However you travel it or whenever you arrive, fun awaits.
2. The Florida Aquarium
One of the Riverwalk’s most popular attractions: The Florida Aquarium. You can’t miss it – enclosed in aqua-hued glass, the wave-shaped building looks at if it’s about to spill over the waterfront. Step inside. A lush, tropical environment combines with interactive programs, educational camps and tens of thousands of fish. In the Coral Reef exhibit, sleek and tiger sharks swim alongside Flip, the endangered green sea turtle, and Snorkelers experience the Swim with the Fishes program.
The Tampa Bay area was recently named one of the top five most culturally diverse and integrated urban areas in the country by the U.S. Census Bureau. Therefore, it’s no surprise that Tampa Bay is a city rich in art and museums as well. Recently Tampa Bay was awarded the honor of being one of the “Top Arts Destinations” by American Style Magazine. Discover an eclectic collage of museums featuring the surreal masterworks of Salvador Dali to traveling Smithsonian exhibitions.
4. Clearwater Beach
Clearwater Beach is a silky white-sand oasis along the warm, calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. More low key than its southern neighbor, the bustling St. Pete’s Beach, Clearwater Beach hosts plenty of spots for kayaking, shelling, and biking. Families especially like its gentle surf, which is perfect for swimming and water sports. Restaurants, shops, and hotels line Mandalay Ave., which runs parallel to the beach. At about 1 mi (1.5 km) long, the strip is easy to stroll. Day visitors should head to Sand Key Beach & Park, a wide beach for swimming and watching dolphins leap out of the sea. For non-beach activities, watch sea otters at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium or watch jugglers and magicians perform at Pier 60. You can also get out on the water on dolphin-watching cruises or even take a pirate cruise. To get an overview of the area, jump on the Jolley Trolley, which travels around Clearwater Beach and up to Sand Key.
5. Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
One of Tampa Bay's hottest dining and entertainment destinations, Hard Rock Cafe Tampa is located in the northwest corner of the casino, just steps away from all the exciting gaming action. In between rounds of Blackjack or Poker, join for a legendary meal or signature drink that is sure to satisfy every craving. The seats offer you a front-row view of live performances and entertainment, as tables surround thr elevated stage. Opposite the stage, our main bar is highlighted by The Band Shell, a dramatic, multimedia canopy that arches over the bar and main seating area.
The cafe also features an outdoor patio and bar and the Wall of Rock™, where guests can interact with memorabilia from Hard Rock's world-renowned collection of rock & roll memorabilia. There's even screens at the tables that will let you browse through all of the history and memories from decades of great music.
