    ZooTampa is a wonderful ace to visit and learn about animals. I do a lot of photography and I am never disappointed after a visit! ZooTampa Member for 2 years.
    ZooTampa is a great family place or I enjoy going solo and working on my photography.

    The Riverwalk is a nice place to take a stroll and has a lot to see along the way. There are also restaurants at one point and we did get to see a cruise ship in port. Very clean and wasn't busy when we went. We did try and take a bike and scooter on the walk on the way back but they wouldn't work so we ended up walking back through the city. Very peaceful to stroll and look out at the water and boats going by.

    I love this place for hockey games! I have not attended a concert though at the arena. For hockey, you can’t have a bad seat! If you want an even better seat, spring for the Chase club! Staff inside and out of the building are always friendly, helpful and just awesome to chat with!

    Great place to take small kids for a picnic. Plenty of tables, play areas and climbing trees. Boardwalk is relatively short and we saw several alligators/birds. It cost $2 to enter the park.

    This area has changed since last I visited, and I think for the better. Beautiful water with lovely vistas. That alone pleases me but there is much more to do.

    Enjoyed experiencing Tab Benoit and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band at this historic theater. On the smallish side the theater provides comfortable seating and good views of the stage. The decor is unique and over the top IMHO but definitely interesting. Lots of street parking and lots nearby. Will call and security are wel organized. Long lines at the one concession stand.

    We couldn't believe that it's free! Best deal in town, for sure. We took the streetcar to Ybor City and had a wonderful lunch at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Thank you, Tampa, for providing this service!

    I love to attend Bucs games here. Fun activities around the stadium on game day. Biggest downfalls are the no bag policy, even the clear ones you get from the team store. And concessions are pretty high.

    Very nicely done! Really good walk through if the area’s history beginning with the Native American inhabitants. Very informative displays. Layout over three floors, all accessible. Plenty of room, things are not crowded in. Cute gift shop and Colombian restaurant on the veranda. Plan on 2-3 hours and definitely plan lunch. We parked by the Aquarium and walked, it was only $10 for all day parking.

    We found the mall to be clean and safe with many good shopping and dining options. Dillards, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom were the anchor stores with many well known smaller stores. The mall was a very large two story building with few places to sit but changing stations at the seating.

    We were annual membership for the last couple of years. This was a place we would go on a day trip or for their holiday events. They have a number of horses (obviously) and a variety of other animals. The paths are almost all dirt, so be mindful when choosing footwear. There is horseback riding, pony rides, and other attractions. They also have a playground and some picnic tables. It's a relaxed family outting.
