The sun is out and the water is warm in Tampa. This large and busy city on the north shore of Tampa Bay is always ready to welcome tourists and its regular swell of snowbirds looking to defrost in its year-round balmy climate. Dig a little deeper in Tampa—beyond its many office buildings and retail stores—and you’ll find a bustling city with great shopping, a diverse population, a devoted sports culture and a happening nightlife scene. And when you book a trip to this awesome place through Wotif, you can swell your souvenir fund with excellent Tampa hotel deals.
Things to Do in Tampa
What kind of holiday do you want? If your tykes are begging for kid-friendly entertainment, take them to the nationally renowned Lowry Park Zoo. No kids? No problem: the penguins are cute no matter how old you are!
Those seeking a more sophisticated holiday experience can visit the Tampa Museum of Art. If Tampa is all about pleasure for you, then choose one of the city’s many golf courses to polish your swing…or maybe it’s your credit card that needs a workout. In that case, click your heels three times…and flag down a taxi to the SoHo District, where you can enjoy upscale shopping and some good eats. Finally, head down to Ybor City to boogie the night away at its great bars and nightclubs.
Getting to & Around Tampa
Fly into Tampa International Airport (TPA). If your Tampa accommodation is downtown, you can get by using the HART public bus system. If you would like to explore neighbouring areas like Orlando (where we hear a certain “magical” theme park resides), then you definitely need to use Wotif to secure a rental car.
Since you’re already on Wotif, you might as well save gobs of money on Tampa packages and Tampa hotels. Hey, traveller, since you’re on a roll! Keep going and book your Orlando accommodation too—there’s no time like the present to extend that annual leave!
