“Dinosaurs??”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit in the area. Take a kayak or a canoe down the river and you'll agree. It is so wild that I always feel like a dinosaur will come crashing out of the woods at any moment.

“Clean Walkway”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

The Tampa Riverwalk is located along the Hillsborough River with modern fountains frequented by kids. There is also a dog park at the end of the trail. Across the river is the University of Tampa which boasts of a historic landmark.
