Top Things to Do in Tampa, Tampa, Florida (B)

Tampa Florida apparently gets lots of visitors. But many just pass through. Lots flit through on their way to join the cruise ships departing from the growing port.

Importantly for visitors, I found a myriad of things to see and do. These included thrills, wildlife, culture, art and incredible places to eat. What follows is my recommendation on the must-see and must-do sights, activities and the best things to do in Tampa.

The park covers a vast area zoned into different regions like Edge of Africa, Nairobi, Congo and Pantopia. The Serengeti Plain takes up an enormous section of the park, and you can experience it either on the free trains that travel around the park or on the Serengeti Safari. This has an additional charge but gets you really close to the animals on an open-topped truck. It includes feeding giraffes by hand. An incredible and moving activity. ......
