Tampa is more than golden beaches and Magic Mike wannabes. In fact, this is a town that takes everything you think about Florida and flips it on its head.
Sure, the weather is always balmy, but did you know ice hockey is a huge sport here? Yes, yogis are commonplace, but did you know that hip-hop yoga is a huge draw? That’s just scratching the surface of surprising things to do in this town. Nab yourself last-minute hotels in Tampa and prepare to let go of all your preconceived notions.
Goals and Sweaters: There’s certainly nothing wrong with taking your family to the beach during your trip, but we know you’re the type of parent to embrace the unexpected. Which leads us to ice hockey. Yes, ice hockey in Florida! The Tampa Bay Lightning are a Stanley Cup-winning team, and always put on heart-pumping games. You might confuse some people as you walk around town in a warm sweater, but you’ll need it near the ice.
Yoga With a Beat: Beach towns and yogis go hand in hand, and Tampa is no exception. In fact, you might look out of place if you’re roaming around in normal clothes instead of skin-tight stretch pants. However, this town is big enough to offer yoga with a twist—or rather, a beat. CAMP is a popular fitness studio that offers Hip Hop Flow. Sweat out bad vibes in the heated room (95-98 degrees) while rap blares on the speakers.
Spa Day—Kinda: Relaxation is the name of the game, but when it comes to loofas and sponges, this town has a surprise. Make your way to Spongeorama Sponge Factory, which has the largest collection of natural sea sponges. Take the free tour, which includes a movie and museum exhibits. Then spend some time in the gift shop where you’ll find souvenirs straight from the area’s waters.
Ahoy Matey: Boating in Florida is nothing new, but Tampa knows how to do it better. Instead of your usual vessel, board a pirate ship. Called—what else—The Pirate Ship, this popular vessel launches from John’s Pass and is manned by costumed actors. You won’t get a chance to shoot off a cannon (bummer, we know), but you can participate in water gun battles on board. With your new sailor skills, book a Tampa hotel on the beach so you’re never far from the waves.
We have a feeling you’re going to have a Florida trip unlike anyone else. Which means you shouldn’t spend money like normal people, either. Use our Hotwire Hot Rates so you can get a 4-star hotel for a 2-star price. From hotels near downtown Tampa to hotels near Tampa Port, we have you covered.
