Tampa – you want Florida, you want it all, and you only want to unpack once. No problem. You want Tampa Bay. Here, a single day’s itinerary might include breakfast at a waterside cafe, a visit to Busch Gardens Africa, The Florida Aquarium, a streetcar ride to Channelside Bay Plaza for shopping, a Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, or Lightning game, topped off with a stay in one of our luxury hotels or resorts. Then on to historic Ybor City where the Cuban sandwiches are hot and crisp, the cigars are hand-rolled, and the colorful streets are lined with fun.
What next? White, sugar sand beaches, sport fishing, jet skiing, parasailing, and join the party in January as rowdy swashbucklers invade Tampa for the Annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival. Whether you are visiting for a vacation or a convention, Tampa Bay & Company is your official source for destination information on Tampa Bay & Hillsborough County.
Cuisine culture in Tampa Bay is common knowledge among the locals. Red Mesa Restaurant employs a wide variety of flavors and preparations – some you may know, like chorizo, chipotle and poblanos, plantains, yuca and queso fresco and other you may have yet to explore, such as fideo pasta, esquites, chimichurri, morita and pasilla chiles, and sangrita (not to be confused with sangria).
Bern’s Steak House has been doing things differently since opening its doors in 1956. They take great pride in their unwavering commitment to using only the highest quality steaks, painstakingly dry-aged and hand-cut to order, then charcoal broiled to your exact specifications. Sukhothai Restaurant Thai cuisine is considered among the world’s most delicious, with a unique blend of particular tastes: hot (spicy), sour (piquant), sweet, and always highlighted with citrus (lemongrass and lime). They feature authentic Thai cuisine prepared with the freshest ingredients and served by our courteous staff.
