When to Visit Tampa, FL

Tampa is warm all year-long, so it's always a great place to visit. When you travel really depends on your plans and what you enjoy doing. If you love to walk on the beach, you can expect sunny skies most days throughout the year, though you may need a sweatshirt or light jacket during the winter. It can get particularly breezy in the springtime, as well. Those who desire to cool off in the surf and chase the waves should visit during the peak summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Plan your trip on dates just a little outside of this peak period, and you'll discover less crowded beaches, abundant sunshine, and great hotel deals.

Come to experience Tampa's wholly unique Gasparilla Festival in late January or early February. It's a mock pirate invasion that's taken place in the city for over a century. Gasparilla-themed events and other festivals take place in Tampa from January through March, for adults and children alike. However, the January “invasion” is the main attraction, drawing over 400,000 visitors annually, so be sure to book your hotel well in advance for best rates and availability.

Tampa, FL: Best of the Beach and the City

Tampa, Florida is one of America's best-kept secrets for vacations. It's not simply a beachy tourist town. Tampa is a flourishing and vibrant city, where a diverse population lives and works every day. There's a Latin flavor to the town, which you can experience on the dance floor in the city's Latin Quarter, called Ybor City. Salsa dancing is a regular pastime, and the city also boasts a renowned flamenco dancing floor show at Columbia Restaurant. It's a can't-miss Tampa experience. Of course, that Latin spice also extends to the delicious cuisine you'll find here, a unique fusion of German, Jewish, Greek, and Cuban flavors brought by Tampa's immigrants who worked in this former cigar district.

One of the favorite activities for locals and tourists alike is to hit the town after dark. When the sun goes down, the street performers come out to play. You can take it all in from your vantage point on the 2.2-mile fixed rail streetcar which navigates through Ybor City, making it easy to connect to downtown and the Channel District. Be sure to check out the open gallery tour and the opportunity to see world-class art right in Tampa Bay.

"Meetings in Tampa Bay"
Score 5.0 / 5

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.
