Tampa is the center for activity on Florida’s west coast. The gem of the city is perhaps the newly built Riverwalk. This walkway is ideal for strolls along the river or to use as a connection between restaurants and shops. It is also one of the best places to partake in one of the city's many events.
As the home to the Tampa Bay Lightning NHL team, there are always sporting events, and even concerts, available at the Amalie Arena. Annual events, such as the famed Gasparilla Parade and River O’Green Fest are another part of what gives this city its vitality. Also be sure to try your hand at Stand Up Paddle Boarding, kayaking, or canoeing available by the bay or at one of the nearby beaches.
Located close by are some of the world’s most famous beaches, including St. Pete and Clearwater Beach. During the summer months, outdoor movies can be seen at dusk on Pier 60. There is a large assortment of nature parks nearby with trails and outdoor play areas for children. Tampa is even the location of one of the Busch Gardens theme parks for roller-coaster lovers.
