The hip, urban heart of Florida’s west coast beats in Tampa Bay. When you make this dynamic destination the glittering modern home for your Sunshine State holiday, you’ll find everything you could want for a week away: thrilling rollercoasters, Cuban culture, vibrant nightlife, engaging museums, stunning shows, a sparkling waterfront, tranquil outdoor excursions, creative chefs, and craft beer – all bathed in year-round warmth and sunshine. Tampa Bay has an experience for every budget and style.
Give your taste buds their own holiday with an array of palate-pleasing flavors and eye-catching culinary creations. Wrap yourself in balmy breezes from the Gulf of Mexico while you savor the flavors at Sparkman Wharf, an open-air waterfront food hall where you can dine picnic-style beneath the deep blue sky. Or indulge in the rich textures of authentic Cuban dishes at the picturesque Columbia Restaurant, a pillar of the historic Ybor City neighborhood and the oldest restaurant in Florida.
Test your mettle on the steel rollercoasters and thrill rides of Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay, where you can feel the surging power of a jungle cat as Tigris, Florida’s tallest triple-launch coasters, sends you spiraling through a heartline roll 150 feet above the ground. Later, stroll hand-in-hand along the Tampa Riverwalk as the sun sets and the lights of the city twinkle to life. In Florida’s hub for craft brewing, you can pull a pint unlike any at the local pub or sip a café con leche before a night of salsa dancing in Ybor City. The choice is yours. Treasure awaits.
