How to Make Your Trip to Tampa More Exciting

Tampa is a fun and exciting city.  It is like visiting a theme park, as there are many different activities to do such as going to the zoo, watching animals, seeing spectacular shows, and eating at delicious restaurants.  However, even though Tampa has these amazing features, it does not seem as exciting as other places such as Disney World or Busch Gardens because you can get bored if you visit Tampa alone without any friends. Even when you do have a great company,  it can still be difficult to enjoy yourself without any activities planned. , So here are some ways on how to make your trip to Tampa more exciting!

Rent a recreational vehicle

One of the best ways to make your trip more fun is by renting a recreational vehicle.  An RV can be your home away from home.  It has everything that you would need on a vacation such as an oven, bathroom, and bed. Renting an RV will make your trip more exciting because it will allow you to set out on long road trips or go on mini-adventures within the city to see all of the sights without getting tired. You can also use one of these RVs for party buses for companies to transport groups of people around town if they are attending conventions or conferences, which could make your trip more exciting!

Depending on your preferences and the number of people you are going with, with so many options available, you will surely find the one that suits your need perfectly. As seen on, there are different models and sizes of RVs that you can choose from for your trip. For example, if it is just you and a friend traveling together, then maybe a 24 to 28-foot model would be good because it is not too big where only two people would feel uncomfortable in it but also not too small where there would barely be any space left. However, if you are planning on renting an RV with more than 4 people, then definitely go for something bigger like a 32 to 36-foot model.

Visit the Zoo

The zoo is one of the most popular places in Tampa.  There are over 3,000 animals and around 146 acres of land for visitors who want to watch the shows or feed the animals.  Not only that, but people also like to visit zoos because they find them educational as well as entertaining. By visiting zoos, you will learn lots about wildlife and feel inspired by nature, which is something not many people experience these days.  It’s even better if there are some baby animals! If you don’t know where exactly the zoo is located, visit this zoo map. If you’re visiting Tampa with friends, likely, they will already plan to go to the zoo, but if you are planning to go on your own then make sure that you don’t miss it!

Go to a Show

Many different shows in the sea world are very entertaining and inspiring for people who love birds or other animals.  It can be very interesting because some of the shows given by sea world include watching dolphins jump through hoops or even swimming over 1000 feet deep into the ocean. It’s not only about animals, though; there are also amazing magic trick shows and very creative performances. You can mainly find these at times, so buying tickets for shows can be more expensive; you can find out which shows are on during the period of your visit on this sea world schedule.  You can buy tickets on their website or even at the actual sea world ticket booth.

Water activities

You can never go wrong with water activities no matter where you are, and Tampa is no exception.  There are many ways that you can enjoy the water in Tampa whether it’s kayaking, jet-skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, wave running, or even paddleboarding! For example, if you love doing extreme sports then you might want to try out some of their adventures like kayaking on rapids. However, if you feel more comfortable just floating around at a lazy pace instead of going up a river for a thrill ride then there exist lots of other options as well such as Kayak or SUP surfing rentals. Either way, it’s more than likely that you will have a blast doing water activities in Tampa.

However, you should make sure you are well-prepared and have the right equipment so that your trip will be as fun and exciting as you want it to be. There are also various courses available both for beginners and experts, so you can learn and improve your skills before you go out and do the real thing.

Visit Busch Gardens Theme Park

Busch Gardens is one of Tampa’s most popular theme parks because it has rides that can cater to almost any age group; not only that, but its atmosphere is very fun as well since it contains beautiful plants and animals from around the world and provides crazy shows and rides that makes visiting much more exciting.   The park consists of different themed zones like English town, Moroccan village, French quarter, and Celtic crossroads which you should check out.

Busch Gardens is very popular for roller coasters, water rides and even animal shows because the theme park wants to ensure that there is something for everyone visiting it. Be sure to buy your tickets in advance, so you can avoid paying more money or waiting hours in line just to get into the theme park! However, if you do choose to wait in line…at least it will be an interesting experience!

Take a Break from the City

If you are looking for something more relaxing to do in Tampa, then why not take a break from the city by visiting one of many coastal towns like Clearwater Beach?  There are tons of fun activities that you can do in these areas like swimming, surfing, eating out at restaurants and even shopping! 

Clearwater beach is especially popular among people who love fishing; it’s the perfect place to relax after an exciting day with your friends. You can rent boats if you don’t have any equipment, or hire captains to take you out on their boat (which is usually cheaper).  If the sea seems too rough for your liking or if you prefer fishing in still waters without waves, there are many other places along the coast that you can visit and enjoy a day out at.

If Tampa is on your bucket list, then you should make the most out of that experience. As you can see, there are many ways that you can make your trip to Tampa exciting. Having in mind these highlights mentioned above should be on your list of places to visit during your stay
