Fun things to do in tampa

Sun, sea, beach, adventure…yes - we’re talking about Tampa! This gem in the beautiful Sunshine State is a great place to visit with kids!

If the ocean isn’t enough, there’s a whole water park to enjoy! Adventure Island is over 30 acres of water-drenched fun for the whole family!  Need to dry off, will a theme park do? Better still, Busch Gardens is not just a theme park - it’s a safari too! How cool is that!

If the kids are wanting more of those adorable animals, there are plenty of places for them to get their fix! Lowry Park Zoo is amazingly interactive, with activities like giraffe feeding (pretty cool!) and The Florida Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in the world!

Kids can get really active at places like Vertical Ventures Indoor Rock Climbing, and interact and create at the Museum of Science and Industry - completely hands-on and fun for kids!

Get that suncream out, and get your family day out hats on - it’s Tampa time!
