About Tampa

With Orlando just over an hour to our north and award-winning beaches to our west, it’s easy to see why the Tampa / St. Petersburg area is a year ‘round favorite destination, and an annual get-away for vacationers from around the world.

At its heart is Busch Gardens, a place that celebrates wild lands and the world we share with one of the largest zoological facilities in the country, along with top-ranked roller coasters, Broadway-style shows and world class family entertainment.

Set your watch to island time and come by enjoy a coastal get-away that’s just what the doctor ordered, any time of year. Check out these helpful links for more information on other fun things to do in Tampa. You may also want to check out our Florida vacation packages.
