    Spend an hour or so seeing big cats in a habitat where they are cared for and loved by volunteers. Don't leave Tampa with out doing this! Check the web site for tour times and cost. Note: Children under 10 are only allowed on one tour at 9 am. Good place to start on a Friday morning or afternoon.

  • 2. Canoe Escape
    Canoe Escape, Thonotosassa, Florida

    Choose from 3 trips ranging in length paddling or canoeing down the Hillsborough river. See Tampa the way it was before it was developed. This is probably an all day event.

  • 3. J. B. Starkey's Flatwoods Adventures

    Tour a Florida ranch on horse back or by "range buggy". Tours range from 1 hour to 2 hours depending on the method of travel. This is also probably an all day event.
