Bring a bathing suit -- Tampa is famous for sunny weather and miles of white-sand beaches. In addition to water sports, you can visit amusement parks, museums and professional sports games.
Check out Busch Gardens or get soaked at Adventure Island's 30 acres of water-drenched madness. Absorb some culture at the Museum of Science and University of South Florida, or shop University Mall.
See Eureka Spring Park's rare plants and stroll the boardwalk. This residential area also boasts Hard Rock Casino and is near Dinosaur World.
Spend a day at one of the area's spectacular beaches or choose from more than 100 parks. Head to the Florida Aquarium or let loose in party-central Ybor City.
Tampa is a popular winter destination, so visit in summer for some of the best bargains. Not only will you save money, but you will also save time by not having to wait in extra-long lines at the hottest attractions.
