Tampa is a city located along the west of Florida’s Gulf Coast, on Tampa Bay. Tampa has a subtropical climate with hot humid summers and dry sunny winters. Tampa is 36km from the beaches at Clearwater and 135km from Orlando, so can make for a perfect destination on a 2 or 3 day centre holiday.
Tampa has some well-known theme parks such as Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, both of which offer thrilling rides, shows and attractions to fill up your days. Hillsborough River State Park or Lettuce Lake Park are natural areas where you can fish, hike, cycle, bird-watch, kayak or try and spot a lazy gator! Tampa Riverwalk, Curtis Hixon Park and Hyde Park are hip areas perfect for shopping, dining and nightlife. Ybor City neighbourhood is a historic mix of architecture and modern buildings with Cuban and Spanish influences. The old red brick buildings are now popular nightlife venues where visitors can enjoy a cocktail with their meal. Tampa itself is a city stay, but its just a 30 minute drive to the stunning Gulf coast beaches.
Tampa is suitable for all age groups looking for a city break with shopping, dining, nightlife, museums and theme parks. There is accommodation available to suit all budgets and would be the ideal place to spend a few nights as part of 2 or 3 centre holiday with Orlando and the beaches.
