Downtown Tampa, Florida

Home to a fun mix of restaurants, shops, museums, sports venues, parks, businesses and waterfront activities, downtown Tampa offers a varied range of attractions, entertainment venues and events. Shop for fresh foods at the Downtown Market, explore the Tampa Museum of Art, see a concert or football game at Amalie Arena, and take the kids to the Florida Aquarium. Since downtown is surrounded by water, book a sailing or boat charter - one the best ways to get around and see the sights of downtown. It's a great place to experience with children, on a date-night, or to soak the Tampa, Florida culture.
