Things to do in Tampa



Calling St Pete and Clearwater a watery paradise is an understatement. Here the beach and water sports are a big part of everyday life. Kite surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, tubing, paddling and cruising on various watercrafts are favourite ways to enjoy the water and get a different perspective of the area’s beaches and waterways. But while the waterfront may be the prime attraction, there are dozens of outdoor adventures waiting to be discovered off the beaten path.

Busch Gardens.

Busch Gardens

Discover Busch Gardens the extraordinary 335-acre adventure park. It brings together an unrivalled combination of incredible rides and amazing animals. Come and experience a new breed of speed on the ultimate launch coaster. Don’t miss Cheetah Hunt and the Cheetah Run. Take a self guided tour around one of the beautiful animal habitats; Jungala gives you the chance to come face-to-face with some of the world’s most endangered animals, Bengal tigers and orangutans.

Beyond the beach.

There’s also a wide range of speciality shops selling everything from antiques to beachwear.
