    This wonderful piece of engineering marvel is always such a pleasure to drive over. The views awesome and you can see for miles! Traffic moves well and there are spots to stop before and after you get on the bridge.

    They are so big cat oriented and not out make money off their rescues. They give the best care possible with compassionate caretakers that provide for the big cats.

    I went on a clear night when the area was bustling. The Bolts were playing and I could hear all the excitement and music from the arena. There was a conference in town and people were out and about. It was nice strolling and taking in the sights and looking at all the different boats. So much to do! Water taxi to the other side, rent a floating tiki bar, water ski, star gaze, eat, drink, you name it. You could even sit in the park or take a romantic walk, or walk around with your pooch. I’ll definitely come back.

    Great zoo. Awesome Christmas decorations and lights. Very large kids area. The african bus tour is well worth the wait. The manatee rescue area is fantastic.

    It was a good rainy day activity. It was very crowded the day we went and we were done in about 2 hours. Nice exhibits. Wish there were turtles or a manatees. Thought it was a little expensive when you have to pay for parking too.

    Blessed beyond measure to spend such a wonderful Mother’s Day Weekend with my kiddos at such a fun adventure theme park! We had a fantastic weekend! The thrill rides were so much fun and we got to conquer the newest roller coaster Iron Gwazi! So much fun! Busch Gardens has always been one of my favorite theme parks and this time definitely did not disappoint! Thank you Busch Gardens Tampa Bay for making my Mother’s Day weekend so fun and memorable! Everything was perfect!

    A few blocks full of bars/restaurants and some shops... nice historic feeling and... that's it. Not easy access from the hotels nearby (not very safe to go walking from hotels to there)

    This really isn't a place to visit, but a great drive to/from the downtown area. Exceptional homes to view along the way.

    The home of the Lightning is terrific hockey arena. The location in downtown Tampa on the river walk is great. Inside, the lower bowl sight lines are really good. The concourse areas felt spacious and not overly crowded even at peak times. Lots of energy in the arena with the boisterous Lightning fans.

    This was a free way to get around parts of the city. It took us from by our hotel, down by the arena, and then down to Ybor City. It runs most of the days during the week and til late at night on the weekends.

    Nice little museum in a very cool building. If you are a history or architecture buff it’s worth a visit. The little museum is on the ground floor of one wing of the building and tells the story of this former hotel and includes many Victorian age pieces original to the hotel. Visit takes about an hour with the free audio tour from your cell phone.

    Looking for something to do in Tampa which is complimentary and offers tasting samples? Yuengling Brewery offers free tours of their Brew Factory many times a day so, the Kid and I were in!
    Yuengling IS the oldest Brewery in the US! It originally began in Pottsville, Pa in 1829, that's 191 years old.
    YEP! It beats out it's Budweiser, the competition by several years. BW was "born" in 1852. The Eagle is original to Yuengling and when BW decided to sue Yuengling for the Eagle copyright, BW lost.
    Back to the tour. The tour is very casual but, organized. Meet in the Guest Center, sign in the guest book, grab a wristband and then wait for the tour to begin. While waiting, one can browse the Gift Shop, walk the grounds or enjoy a beer before the Tour.
    A short oral presentation along with a short film is given at the beginning of the tour. You will be split into smaller groups (no more than 20 people) so, you can hear the Guide's complete description as you move from building to building. HEADS UP: NO photos are allowed in the interior except for the Guest Center. Yuengling is very sensitive to their formula and processing. It's ok, cause you can still take some great exterior photos.
    The tour last for about 90 minutes. There are stairs and it's all walking so, wear comfy shoes. Parking is also FREE. Q & A's are encouraged!
    After the tour, you can enjoy popcorn and 2 complimentary samples back at the Guest Center.
    Great 1st date!

    Great place to take the family. The exhibits are varied enough that elementary, pre-teen, and the hard to please teenagers can all find entertainment. Even the Adults also enjoyed the experience. The young-en’s particularly enjoyed the Pirate Exhibit.
    We found the Garrison Street Parking Lot convenient.
