Tampa Holidays Overview

Tampa might be small in its size and might only rank as the 54th largest city in the US, but it is known to be extremely big on its infections mood and travel experiences. The city is famous for offering all sorts of sights and activities that ensure that there is something for everyone and the beautiful cultural infrastructure is known to put larger and more popular cities to shame.

Tampa began its journey as a small settlement close to a major US Army Base that was built in the 1820s. However, it managed to transform itself into a booming economy once the railroads arrived and become home to some of the largest tobacco industries in the US. The Great Depression might have ended Tampa’s rise, but it has still managed to transform itself as a financially secure city and a popular tourist destination.

The main charms and attractions of Tampa can be found in its magnificent museums such as the Museum of Science and Industry and exciting amusement parks and zoos such as the extremely popular Bosch Gardens, Adventure Island, Dinosaur World, Florida Aquarium, Big Cat Rescue and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. Those looking for hip attractions and fiery cuisines cannot miss out on the Ybor City neighbourhood, famous as the Latin Quarter of the city.

What makes Tampa so unique is that it might not be as flashy as Miami or as popular as Orlando, but it is known to combine the very best experiences of both cities and offer it at a subdued level which makes them seem much more intimate and special. Those looking for something other than attractions and museums can also enjoy the city’s exciting nightlife, become a part of unique festivals in the Tampa Bay area and explore the breathtaking natural beauty.

Tampa holidays - Top Places To Go

1. Ybor City
What is it? Ybor City in central Tampa, with its cobblestone streets and huge old cigar factory buildings, is a National Historic Landmark District that beckons visitors back to an era when this Latin Quarter was known as the cigar capital of the world. The historic enclave, founded in 1886, has been fully restored and although the cigar factories are no longer operational, the buildings now house shops, restaurants, clubs and art galleries drawing large numbers of visitors. It is still possible to watch locals demonstrate the ancient art of premium hand-rolled cigar making, or spend a wild night applauding Spanish Flamenco dancers. Hours of Operation: Phone:



2. Busch Gardens
McKinley Drive
What is it? Busch Gardens is a massive zoo-come-theme park, which predates Florida's more famous Walt Disney World and offers an equally exciting and entertaining experience for visitors. The park is based on an overall African theme, divided into eight different areas with thousands of animals living in naturalistic environments. The site also contains thrill rides, live entertainment venues, shops and restaurants, all easily viewed from above from the Skyride cable car that crosses the park. In one day it is possible to visit Tutankhamen's Tomb in Egypt, cross the plains of the Serengeti and watch snake charmers in a Moroccan sultan's tent. Hours of Operation: Opening hours vary according to the day and month, but the park is generally open daily from between 9am and 10am, closing between 5pm and 9pm; June and July opening hours are 9am to 9pm or 10pm Phone:1 888 800 5447

4801 East Fowler Avenue
What is it? The hands-on Tampa Science Museum is designed to educate, amaze and amuse both young and old with more than 450 interactive exhibits.

The biology section features a unique way to explore the human body and stroll through a butterfly garden. Also at the museum is Florida's first IMAX dome theatre, and the museum building is set in a 47-acre nature reserve which features walking trails.
