    Cheap toll to go over a beautiful bridge.
    There are 2 fishing piers, one on each side of the bridge. Super tall bridge with amazing views across the road.

    They are so big cat oriented and not out make money off their rescues. They give the best care possible with compassionate caretakers that provide for the big cats.

    The only negative I have to say is there is so much circling around and you're not entirely sure if you've seen it all. The app is very helpful but you have to make sure you click all the right things to check the animals off the list. We went on a hot day that turned to rain. Some animals weren't out that's to be expected. Some animals though were just impossible to see or get good angles because of their enclosure. The is some cover from the rain but few and far between. Food and drink is reasonably priced. They do have some unusual zoo animals like Okapi and Shoebill Storks that are only in a few zoos in all of the United States. It is worth a look. If you're into doing other things in Tampa look at the City Pass it saved a ton of money.

    It was a good rainy day activity. It was very crowded the day we went and we were done in about 2 hours. Nice exhibits. Wish there were turtles or a manatees. Thought it was a little expensive when you have to pay for parking too.

    Busch gardens is the best park and you have to do the Serengeti Safari experience it was the most amazing experience ever .we were lucky enough to get the tour just me and my partner which was very surprising as it’s very popular .
    The team which were Gwen , mckenzie ,Liza and the amazing camera lady maleena
    They were all so amazing and so friendly and you can tell how much they care and love each animal. gwen was very funny always cracking a joke,mckenzie was telling us the best facts and was very efficient, Liza kept us safe and maleena took some amazing pictures which we purchased and we will treasure forever .
    They made our experience magical .
    We got to feed some majestic giraffes which was a first for me and my partner all the team helped and explained each step which made it easy and so fun. so if you haven’t done it yet you need to get down there and see these amazing people and these beautiful animal . We will defo be visiting again in the future .

    A few blocks full of bars/restaurants and some shops... nice historic feeling and... that's it. Not easy access from the hotels nearby (not very safe to go walking from hotels to there)

    This really isn't a place to visit, but a great drive to/from the downtown area. Exceptional homes to view along the way.

    Amalie Arena has been my favorite place to go to when there is a specific concert that’s comes to the Greater Tampa Bay Area. This time it was for a Lightning game against the Montreal Canadiens at the beginning of April. The same great service that my mom and I have experienced for a concert or performance, we got the same great customer service during the lighting game.

    Nice little museum in a very cool building. If you are a history or architecture buff it’s worth a visit. The little museum is on the ground floor of one wing of the building and tells the story of this former hotel and includes many Victorian age pieces original to the hotel. Visit takes about an hour with the free audio tour from your cell phone.

    Looking for something to do in Tampa which is complimentary and offers tasting samples? Yuengling Brewery offers free tours of their Brew Factory many times a day so, the Kid and I were in!
    Yuengling IS the oldest Brewery in the US! It originally began in Pottsville, Pa in 1829, that's 191 years old.
    YEP! It beats out it's Budweiser, the competition by several years. BW was "born" in 1852. The Eagle is original to Yuengling and when BW decided to sue Yuengling for the Eagle copyright, BW lost.
    Back to the tour. The tour is very casual but, organized. Meet in the Guest Center, sign in the guest book, grab a wristband and then wait for the tour to begin. While waiting, one can browse the Gift Shop, walk the grounds or enjoy a beer before the Tour.
    A short oral presentation along with a short film is given at the beginning of the tour. You will be split into smaller groups (no more than 20 people) so, you can hear the Guide's complete description as you move from building to building. HEADS UP: NO photos are allowed in the interior except for the Guest Center. Yuengling is very sensitive to their formula and processing. It's ok, cause you can still take some great exterior photos.
    The tour last for about 90 minutes. There are stairs and it's all walking so, wear comfy shoes. Parking is also FREE. Q & A's are encouraged!
    After the tour, you can enjoy popcorn and 2 complimentary samples back at the Guest Center.
    Great 1st date!

    Visited this museum with our 10yo and we all enjoyed it. It had a lot of great displays and several short movies to learn even more. We spent about 2-3 hours here and we were able to take in most of the displays. They are part of the Southeastern Museum Conference so you can get free or discounted admission to museums all over the Southeast if you get a membership.
