It is great to bike on Bayshore Boulevard. The views of downtown Tampa are incredible, especially at night. It is a very peaceful area, with beautiful (and very expensive) houses, overlooking the bay. Great to walk, run, or bike.

Tampa's Bayshore Boulevard remains one of the outstanding scenic waterfront drives - anywhere. As it curves along Hillsborough Bay, it affords wonderful opportunities to view the Bay in its various states: calm, rough and wavy, tranquil, sometimes turbulent - but always scenic. Bayshore Blvd. makes Chicago's Lake Shore Drive (which I am also fond of, having lived in Chicago for... More

A lovely bike ride on the bay front. We saw several dolphins and watched as a cruise ship left port. A great view of the downtown skyline across the bay. We started at Ballast Point Park at the south end and rode it to downtown and then back. The park had a little restaurant right next to the pier as... More

If you have the time as parking was easy, have a walk along the boulevard. Really enjoyed it and the views were great.

I believe the total uninterrupted length is 7 miles or so all of which is running along Tampa Bay. Great place to ride bike, walk or run.

This place is so beautiful. Especially at night. I recommend waiting till it gets a little cooler, then bundling up with your loved one and taking a long stroll. The view is incredible, and the lights are stunning. Try some of the restaurants that are in the area after your walk!

This is a very nice walkway. It is filled with beautiful homes to look at and the water is right along the walkway. It is free to park and the people around there are very nice. The walkway is nice and wide so people can ride their bikes and their is no worry of feeling overcrowded. I was very impressed.... More

Some one had said to me that this is a nice walk, well that's a bit of an under estimation, to see the runners, skaters and other walkers out was good but the scenery and feeling of peace on an early morning walk was just a tonic and I would recommend it to everyone.
