Things to do in
Tampa
Departs at 4:00 PM
Pirates once plundered the shores of Tampa Bay, but today this swashbuckling city attracts beach seekers, outdoor enthusiasts and museum lovers alike. Its low-key beach vibe blends seamlessly with its glistening city centre atmosphere – and there’s no shortage of thrills for all ages. Explore Ybor City’s cigar-rolling history or brave the rollercoasters at Busch Gardens. Kayak along the Hillsborough River past sunbathing alligators, and see the elusive Florida panther at Lowry Park Zoo. Geek out at the Museum of Science & Industry’s domed IMAX Theatre – or browse Florida Cracker exhibits at Tampa Bay History Centre. Tampa cruises allow you to discover a treasure trove of adventures, from the beach to the bay.

CULTURE FIX

Stroll along the Tampa Riverwalk and see where it leads you. You might explore interactive exhibits at the Tampa Bay History Centre, or try 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.
Insider tip
The vintage, air-conditioned TECO Line Tram can transport you between central Tampa, Channelside and Ybor City, with 11 stations along a 2.7-mile line. Tickets can be purchased at the stations.

HIT THE SAND

A short 30-minute drive west of the city centre 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 clothing and Florida-inspired souvenirs at the outdoor Channelside Bay Plaza, right at the port. Head to Hyde Park Village for upmarket boutique shops, and pop into local sportswear outfitter Salt Pines. Nothing beats Ybor City when it comes to quirky vintage shops and hand-rolled cigars.
