Tampa is well known for its wide range of cultural and scenic highlights. When you're ready to get going, Expedia can make it happen.

This area of Tampa Bay has roughly 340,000 inhabitants.

You'll find this destination some 200 miles from Tallahassee, the state capital of Florida. It's also roughly 13 miles from Valrico.

After you've made it this far, visting Busch Gardens is a no brainer. This iconic attraction is guaranteed to impress.

Leave the grown-up world behind and throw yourself into a world of wonder at Adventure Island and Big Cat Rescue. The Florida State Fairgrounds and the Glazer Children's Museum are also worth stopping by if you're looking for more ways to keep little ones busy.

See the ocean's most colorful aquatic creatures in the meticulously recreated marine habitats at Florida Aquarium.

The Lowry Park Zoo is a terrific place to bring your family for an exciting day among local and exotic animals. If your time is limited, stop by the information counter and take a map so you can quickly find the park favorites.

To learn more about the noble art of brewing, take the opportunity to visit the Cigar City Brewery. The friendly brewmaster will teach you everything you need to know about the different brewing methods they use, and what it is that makes each beer so delicious.

To taste the true flavors of the region, make sure you stop by the Florida Estates Winery. Take a stroll through the vineyards and learn how sommeliers recognize quality drops. If you find something you particularly love, pick up a few bottles to enjoy at home.

On the lookout for some late-night thrills? Challenge the blackjack dealer at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino Tampa, a fast-paced venue where the action never stops.

If you're hoping to learn about the local plant species, a visit to the University of South Florida Botanical Gardens and the Eureka Springs Regional Park would be a great idea.

Bring along a bite to eat and relax for while in the tranquil surroundings of Al Lopez Park and Cypress Point Park. You'll also find plenty of space to relax at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and Picnic Island Park.

Whether you're after a certain map or just some general pointers, the friendly staff at Tampa / Hillsborough Convention and Visitors Association are here to help.

Need to escape the stresses of modern life? Head out on an adventure to Lettuce Lake Park and E.G. Simmons Regional Park. Nature-loving tourists will also have a terrific time at Camp Bayou Nature Preserve and Hillsborough River State Park.

To learn something new, head on over to the MacDill Air Force Base or the Tampa Firefighters Museum. Ask a staff member about guided tours or special events. If you luck out and there's nothing on, simply enjoy a stroll through the contemplative halls.

Examine obsolete watercraft models and nautical artifacts as you sail through the displays at the American Victory Ship Mariners Memorial Museum.

Featuring a great range of scientific artifacts and displays, the Museum of Science and Industry is worth stopping at.

If you're looking for art and design, head over to some of the gallery spaces. Spend an inspiring day touring the Tampa Museum of Art, the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum.

Take yourself back through time and uncover secrets of the past at the Tampa Bay History Center and the Ybor City Museum State Park. The Henry B. Plant Museum and the Oldsmar Historical Society Museum are also respected options.

Visiting history nuts shouldn't forgo the AIDS Memorial Park or La Casita House Museum. Go for a stroll, take a few photos and discover some of the important events that happened in times gone by.

Want to get a glimpse of the area's military history? The drums of war still echo through the walls of Fort Foster.

Get out your camera, walk around the grounds and enjoy the contemplative atmosphere at the Wat Mongkolrata Temple.

Tampa's most famous sights can overshadow its less known, yet equally rewarding attractions. The Grand Prix Tampa and Manatee Viewing Center might catch your interest. Also, think about a visit to the Sun City Center Library and McCormick's Waterski Wakeboard and Cable Park if time allows.
