The City on the Bay: Tampa Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Save this trip for a two- or three-day weekend because each of the theme parks, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island, is worth more than one day. In fact, season passes are a good value if you live close enough to come here more than twice. Kids never tire of the water park, and adults love the ever-changing scene of birds, flowers, animals, and shows at Busch Gardens. Tampa itself is one of Florida’s most beguiling cities, from its Latin tempo to its fresh, youthful bustle. It’s a major cruise port, has fine museums and shopping, hosts blockbuster events and festivals, and is the home of world-class resorts and spas.
For Orlando residents, it’s a second home where dining and shopping are world class, big-name artists play in concert, and an international airport sometimes provides better connections or rates than can be found at Orlando International Airport. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Orlando. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
