Tampa Travel Tips

Tampa, the hidden gem of Florida's central west coast, is a bustling city on the Tampa Bay. The explosion of new, exotic restaurants, hip breweries, and galleries throughout the city, especially in the historic Ybor City neighborhood, has changed Tampa from a business center to a vibrant, cultural hub. The Tampa Riverwalk follows the Hillsborough River through the heart of downtown, weaving luscious green space with urban architecture and unique attractions. Tampa’s most famous and fun-filled destination is Busch Gardens, an African-themed amusement park packed with roller coasters, animal viewings, and entertainment. Nearby is the 30-acre water park Adventure Island with pools and water slides perfect for cooling off from the hot sun. After spending the day exploring Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, and many museums, our Tampa vacation homes, condos, and villas give you the perfect place to enjoy a cool the gulf breeze with your family and friends.

Watch manatees play in their natural habitat, kayak through mangroves and sail to nearby beaches, and scream with terror as you drop down one of the world’s tallest and longest roller coasters. Escape to Tampa and relax in a luxury resort, beach condo, or vacation home personalized by Vacation Rentals by Choice Hotels™!
