Tampa, located on Tampa Bay along Florida’s Gulf Coast, is one of the major business hubs of the State. However, it’s not all about commerce in this city on the water. It’s also known for its museums, culture, history, and family-friendly attractions. You’ll find Busch Gardens which features pulse-pounding rides and animal-viewing areas, historic Ybor City, a neighborhood developed by Cuban and Spanish cigar factory workers, and much more. It’s a city that’s worth exploring if you’ve never been. Our first visit, but not last.
