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.
