One of Florida's more laidback coastal cities, you won't find quite the same spring break party zone atmosphere away from the beaches. Walk the historic cobblestone streets of Ybor City, once a major cigar workshop area, and pop into the local art and history museums, too.

Didn't visit the city itself, as I went to the beaches and they were pretty nice beaches, but the best part really is just being able to swim in the Gulf of Mexico, which is pretty cool to say!

I like Tampa. Though when driving on their streets for the 1st time, it felt very strange. Seems like you're driving right on water (if that even makes sense?) As for stuff to do, regular stuff nothing out of the ordinary. If you were planning a trip to Florida, I suggest somewhere else. Clear-water Beach is awesome and of course Disney World. We haven't been to Miami yet, but I'd love to go :)

I lived in Tampa for 7 years, from 1985 through 1991, which were the worst years for the Tampa Bay Bucs (I didn't let that affect my rating). I've been back several times since and it is a growing, vibrant city. If you get the chance, go out to eat at Bern's Steak House which is ranked as one of the best steakhouses in the US, and don't miss the dessert room!!
