Tampa, FL summarized

Boasting of 165 beaches and parks within its boundaries, Tampa brings in huge crowds every year especially in the summer. Armed with a boatload of theme parks and attractions, there is never a boring day when tourists visit Tampa. When in Tampa, guests can start their day off with a visit to the Lowry Park Zoo and take pictures of the 2,000 or so animals that are featured. Guests can hop on a ride to the Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, which is a theme park with an African theme. If Africa is not in the books, then perhaps a water park would take your fancy as Adventure Island offers water rides, and other water-related attractions to all its guests. For a slower day, museum hopping may be ideal for those who want to see history preserved at the World War II Victory Ship, also known as the museum ship and Henry B. Plant Museum. Visiting all of Tampa's attractions may be exhausting, but it does end up in a good way always. When in need of more energy, tourists can always top up at top restaurants such as Carmine's Restaurant, the Jerk Hut and Café Don Jose.

In Tampa Bay, any excuse to celebrate will do and locals break out the fireworks, parade floats, food vendors and live entertainment nearly every month for the area's fantastic line up of festivals and events. While the cool and breezy days of spring draw the largest concentration of festivals, Tampa Bay plays host to a myriad of events from professional and amateur sporting events to world class dance, theater, concerts and shows year round. Tampa Bay's festivals and events showcase the best in entertainment, food, drinks, music, arts and culture, film and fashion. Treasure awaits in Tampa Bay! Once the world's Cigar Capital, Tampa Bay is a vibrant region that takes pride in its rich, cultural heritage. Visitors can experience delicious culinary cuisine, serene river excursions, thrilling attractions and exceptional shopping. Explore by land, air or sea – share your treasures, discover new ones and together we will unlock something new. Enthusiastic Tampa Bay Lightning (hockey) and Storm (arena football) fans and hip concertgoers dig in to inspired fare at the Amalie Arena. With a revolving menu that draws inspiration from the main event inside the forum – after all, Beliebers will certainly have a different palate than hockey buffs – The Firestick Grill completely changes the perception of “arena food.” Whatever the score of the game, Holy Hog BBQ wins every time with Texas style smoked brisket and pulled pork sandwich combos loaded with jalapeno macaroni and cheese and corn fritters drizzled with maple syrup and powdered sugar y'all.
