Things to do in Tampa

Tampa is a haven for anyone interested in a vacation on the water, or even just some stunning ocean views. Whether you’re on a family-friendly getaway or want to explore what Floridian nightlife has to offer, this coastal city is a great destination. The best things to do in Tampa don’t all involve the water, however. Landlubbers can stay just as busy as seasoned sailors. Whether you explore the local zoo or spend a Sunday at the theater, land-based attractions in Tampa will easily keep you entertained.
