    Visited on a weekday, got there early and managed to get on all the big rides within the first hour or so (don’t recommend!!). So we then were able to wander and see all the animal enclosures and had lunch before rides again! Have seen some negative reviews which was a worry but we had a great day out! Slightly annoying to have to pay so much for parking and also lockers.

    Very well organized and lots to see. Favorites were sharks, sea turtles, river otters but much more. Touching tanks were nice for rays and jellies. Penguin exhibit very small. Food pretty good but pricey. Have to pay for parking. Tickets expensive but good rainy day activity. Prices better if you buy day before.

    Lovely zoo. Enjoyed the safari guided ride. Saw some interesting animals I never heard of before. Nice less than a full day visit.

    This was a unique birthday gift for our son. We had never done this before and it was fabulous! It is a weather dependent experience but our captain made up for it by taking us to a beautiful bridge and parking underneath it for photos. The price is reasonable for the 3 hour trip. Always looking for something a bit different and this fits the bill.

    Enjoyed my stay, especially my drinks that were made by the best bartender I have ever got to know. Nia thanks again and keep up the hard work.

    Beautiful building but dangerous floor due to it being very slippery. The staff told us it was due to the ice but there was also some cord connections and it was easy to miss step so focused. We were to entered at 4pm so we arrived at 3:15pm....they were still setting up outside and we couldn't even get in to use the bathroom until after 4. I do want to appreciate Lois, Augie, and Jack who were great and so helpful with our disabled family members.

    Boyfriend and I are here for a concert and needed to kill 2 hours. For $2 we went to Lettuce Lake Park and rode our electric bikes. Very quiet and the beautiful! Unfortunately it rained so we didn't do the boardwalk but we did find one of the canoe launches. Great places for families...tons of shade , some playgrounds, and shelters.

    We have been visiting Ybor City since the 1980’s when we lived in Tampa, so we have seen its ups and downs. This was our first visit in ten years, and we were very happy with the current vibe. The streets were clean, there is more informative signage including historical markers, Street Art, the buildings are being restored, the Saturday Market was well attended, and there are more restaurants and clubs than ever.

    We really enjoyed our three night stay.

    This theater is so beautiful and one of only a handful of historic theaters designed by John Emerson still standing. The peaceful decor inside is so soothing. We had so much fun watching the Barbie movie here! I’d recommend seeing anything here as opposed to the typical movie theater. What an experience!

    We had a wonderful time visiting the museum. I was so happy to find this local favorite. I’ve been to Tampa many times and this was never on my radar until I found it listed on Trip Advisor. The architecture of the building is stunning! I enjoyed the free audio tour that really brought each room to life. What an amazing piece of history…everyone should visit while in Tampa.

    This area has changed since last I visited, and I think for the better. Beautiful water with lovely vistas. That alone pleases me but there is much more to do.

    Efficient and free means to getting around Tampa. We stayed on and toured the city via the Trolley.

    I took my 8 year olds to the museum on a warm Sunday afternoon and we had a great time! Lots of interactive activities and interesting films along with cool artifacts from Tampa and Florida's history. The staff were very friendly and we bought an annual pass. One highlight for the kids was the interactive pirate ship exhibit. We did that one a couple times!

    This was one of our activities as part of a baseball bus tour. I found it very interesting even though I don’t watch football. We got to see some behind the scenes views and got to stand on the field.
    The stadium is well maintained and clean. The concourses are wide. The theme of Buccaneers is carried well throughout the stadium. Loved the pirate ship

    Catch a Spring Training Yankee Game. Great to get up close to the field at a reasonable price. Parking is a hassle, plan ahead. They handed out sunscreen and water before the game. Yankee fans should do this at least once.
