Overall Guide : Tampa offers its tourists several attractions and activity options, making it an ideal family holiday destinations. The African Art Gallery and Museum, housing authentic African artefacts as well as the artwork of several African and African-American artists, is an art... more lover’s paradise. Nature lovers will be delighted with a trip to Busch Gardens, where African wildlife roams freely. Kids will enjoy the several rides available here. The Florida Aquarium, featuring the exciting and interesting life of various marine animals, is a must visit especially for children. Other attractions include Children’s Museum of Tampa, Henry B Plant Museum, Lowry Park Zoo, Museum of Science and Industry, Tampa Museum of Art, Tampa Bay History Center, and Ybor City State Museum.

Overall Guide : Extremely Boring. Public Transportation is terrible. It is not a good spot for a fun vacation. If you need a great retirement place this is the place to be. And please take cover for your own safety if there is... more a lightning storm. Tampa is a good place only if you want to do nothing but retire and relax the last years of your life.

Overall Guide : As it was commented earlier Tampa is a dead town. It may be good for retired people but they also may feel it is boring. Absolutely no public transportation and town is scattered with long distances for a visitor traveling... more with a budget it is a hell.
