Tampa, Florida Family Vacation
Know Before You GoPrinter-Friendly Version
- At a Glance
With its warm Gulf waters, pristine beaches, temperate climate, and nearly guaranteed daily sunshine, the Tampa Bay area is a magnet for surf-loving families. There's even more fun to be had away from the shore: take a journey through Africa at Busch Gardens, race down a 210-foot water slide at Adventure Islands, stand eye-to-eye with lions at Big Cat Rescue, or float serenely through a 16,000-acre wildlife preserve on a Canoe Escape paddling trip. Even an oh-so-seldom rainy day won't spoil your family's tropical vacation -- head indoors and marvel at underwater life at the Florida Aquarium or ponder the surreal at the Dali Museum. Thrill-seekers, sun worshippers, and nature lovers will all say the same thing when it's time to head home: Can't we stay longer?
