Tampa ranks among the country's most livable cities, attracting newcomers with its growing economy and status as a major port on the Gulf of Mexico.
You'll get in some beach time at Siesta Beach and Saint Pete Beach. Let the collections at Duncan McClellan Gallery and The Dali Museum capture your imagination. Explore Tampa's surroundings by going to Treasure Island Beach (in Treasure Island), Orlando (Disney's Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World Resort, & more) and Parasailing & Paragliding (in Madeira Beach). Pack the 21st (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Busch Gardens. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Clearwater Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, identify plant and animal life at Seaside Seabird Sanctuary, and add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour.

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Tampa route planner.
