Your Visitor's Guide
to Tampa Bay!

Whether you are here on vacation, spring break or a quick business trip, take time to relax and enjoy all that Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater Beach have to offer.

Tampa is a cosmopolitan city known for fine dining, upscale shops, spectacular shows, Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo just for starters.

St. Pete holds its own on both the Bay and the Gulf with gorgeous beaches, Tampa Bay Rays Baseball, a vibrant downtown and Gulfside areas.

Clearwater Beach means "the Beach" to most visitors but it's also home to Winter and Hope, the dolphin movie stars in one of the finest aquariums and movie museums in the Country.

Don't forget the fun to be had every afternoon at Pier 60 as locals and visitors alike gather to pay homage to another spectacular sunset.

Where to start? We've mapped some of Tampa Bay's best attractions starting from Tampa International Airport (TIA).
So much to see and do in the Tampa Bay Area! This listing highlights dozens of our favorite must-sees!
Dining to suit every taste can be found nearby. For those on a budget we've listed "economical" eateries.
From outlet stores to boutiques, some shops might fit right in on Rodeo drive. You name it, you can find it here!
County and City Parks abound for hiking, biking, canoeing or just picnicing. Great places to go, relax and enjoy Nature.
