A PIRATE’S PARADISE

Things To Do

in Tampa

CULTURE FIX

Stroll along the Tampa Riverwalk and see where it leads you. You might explore interactive exhibits at the Tampa Bay History Center, or go stand-up paddleboarding from the Sail Pavilion. Tampa Museum of Art’s collections range from ancient to modern— and the Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is home to splash fountains, a playground and skyline views.

HIT THE SAND

A short 30-minute drive west of downtown lands you along the Gulf of Mexico coast, which is fringed by a string of sugary beaches. Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach both offer an upbeat seaside atmosphere, while Caladesi Island State Park and Fort DeSoto Park provide serene shoreline settings.

SEA WATCH

Enter the Florida Aquarium to encounter over 20,000 species of aquatic plants and animals. Cruise to Tampa and see river otters on the Florida Wetlands Trail and ring-tailed lemurs on the Journey to Madagascar. Then say hello to goliath grouper, stingrays, reef fishes, sea turtles and sharks in the Bays & Beaches habitat.

LOCAL CUISINE

Tampa’s food scene stems from a fusion of Cuban, Spanish, Italian and Floribbean influences. Local raw bars serve up fresh shrimp, oysters, scallops and grouper from the Gulf of Mexico. The Cuban sandwich— piled with Genoa salami— is a city signature. For a taste of authentic Florida Cracker cuisine, try sofkee porridge, pilau (rice cakes) or fried alligator tail during your next Tampa cruise.

SHOPPING

Pick up tropical apparel and Florida-inspired souvenirs at the outdoor Channelside Bay Plaza, right at the port. Head to Hyde Park Village for upscale boutique stores, and stop in local sportswear outfitter Salt Pines. Nothing beats Ybor City when it comes to quirky vintage stores and hand-rolled cigars.

INSIDER TIP

The vintage, air-conditioned TECO Line Streetcar can transport you between downtown Tampa, Channelside and Ybor City, with 11 stations along a 2.7-mile line. Tickets can be purchased at the stations.

Erupting With Beauty

The Azores is home to many natural wonders like Lagoa das Sete Cidades. The twin lake is in a volcanic caldera — don't worry, the volcano is dormant — creating a unique shape and even more captivating view. Drive down the 9-1 and across the bridge for stunning panoramic views of the lush surroundings and green blue water.

A pod of Atlantic striped dolphins

Spot Sea Life

Put your exploration skills to the test and spend the day on the water. The Azores is home to around 20 different species of dolphins and whales, making it the perfect place to spot a breach. Go into it with an open mind — when viewing animals in the wild, every trip is different.

Portas de Cidade and the Saint Sebastian church clock tower in Ponta Delgada, Azores

Postcard Perfect in Ponta

Step inside a postcard by posing for a selfie with Portas de Cidade. Built in the 18th century, the triple-arched black and white gateway is what comes to mind when people think of Ponta Delgada — it's even on the city's coat of arms. After you snap your photo, explore the rest of the city center from here by foot.

Mixed Portuguse tapas on wood table

Local Cuisine

In Ponte Delgada, you'll find plenty of pestiscos, or Portuguese tapas. They're a great way to dine on some delicious fresh foods without breaking the bank. Don't leave without trying the grilled octopus and fried mackerel — mouthwatering staples in the Azores. If you're up for a new experience, try lapas, a delicious local sea snail, typically served grilled with butter, garlic and red pepper sauce.

An assortment of ceramic souvenirs in Portugal

Shopping

Head to Galerias Portas do Mar for your pick of handmade crafts. Choose from clay dishes, vases, embroidery and lace products. Pick up some locally grown tea from Sao Miguel's Gorreana Tea Factory, or pop into the smaller shops around the city to purchase some delicious wine to sip at home.

The Blarney house in Cork, Ireland

Kiss the Blarney Stone

Don't leave the region without getting up close and personal with the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle, located eight kilometers northwest of Cork. Legend has it, if you literally bend over backwards to kiss the stone, you'll gain the gift of eloquence.

The gaol in Cork's old city

Go to Gaol

Going to prison is usually a bad thing, but Cork City Gaol (the Celtic spelling for "jail") is the exception. The castle-like building once housed 19th century prisoners. It closed in 1923 to become a broadcasting station and reopened as a museum in 1993. Today, you can tour the cells and see the artifacts of early radio broadcasting.

A building at Fort Mitchel on Spike Island in Ireland

Fortify Yourself

Take the short, scenic ferry ride from Cobh to Spike Island — named the top European tourist attraction at the 2017 World Travel Awards — and explore Fort Mitchel. Over 200 years old, the star-shaped fortress previously held 2,300 prisoners. For brave souls, the island even offers After Dark tours.

A serving of traditional stew with a pint of beer on the side

Local Cuisine

Visit the local artisans selling their fresh produce at English Market in Cork, where trading has been happening since 1788. You'll find artisan cheese and bread, locally raised meats, fresh produce and seafood. Then, head to a traditional restaurant on Oliver Plunkett street for a classic dinner of fish and chips or lamb stew with potatoes and vegetables.

Various souvenir Irish magnets

Shopping

St. Patrick's Street in the city center is Cork's main shopping district to see with your Ireland cruise. You'll find modern pop-ups like Wild Design, which offers ethically made handicrafts and jewelry. Traditional Irish stores like Kilkenny Shop specialize in everything from pottery to home decor. The common theme here is high-quality, Irish-made goods.

Duck leg confit on a white plate with potatoes and mushroom sauce

Local Cuisine

In Waterford, you must dine on blaa. With a pedigree that goes back to the 17th century, the dish is a light and fluffy bread roll, typically served with eggs and sausage. Later on, head to the Grattan Quay and its side streets for upscale spots serving refined plates based on regional ingredients, like slow-cooked local duck confit and Irish-raised angus beef ribeye.

Waterford crystal champagne glasses

Shopping

You won't find anywhere in the world better for buying Waterford crystal, an outgrowth of the city's historic glass-making tradition. Head to the House of Waterford, which has the world's largest selection of Waterford crystal items. For your non-glass needs, head to the Quay to peruse the boutiques selling jewelry and Irish knitwear.
