visit-tampa-bayStart your day with a run or walk along scenic Bayshore Blvd. — the world’s longest continuous sidewalk at 4.5 miles — offering a waterfront panoramic view of downtown Tampa.

Head to Busch Gardens Tampa to ride the fastest and longest roller coaster in the Southeast, the all-new Cheetah Hunt® — among a number of other thrilling rides, exciting animal encounters, and more.

Enjoy dinner at Shula’s Steak House, just minutes away at the InterContinental Tampa hotel. It’s where a number of out-of-town teams stay and a great place to celebrity-sport watch.

The night’s still young, so head to the historic Latin district of Ybor City for a high-energy evening along Seventh Avenue, and discover why Ybor City earned the name “Nightlife Capital of Florida’s West Coast.” To make transportation easy, take the TECO Line streetcar system. One-day unlimited fares are just $5.00 and a three-day, unlimited pass is $11.00.

For a late-night dining option, find the Taco Bus, which delivers the real taste of Mexico at a variety of locations.

Game Day
Explore a world of new tastes with brunch at Datz. Start off with the Prickly Pear Mimosa, followed by the When Pigs Fly, featuring five types of bacon served with a selection of accompaniments. Then, choose between house favorites such as the eggs barbacoa, chicken n’ waffle benedict, and 10-ounce big a$$ burger, to name just a few.

Jump aboard the Tampa Water Taxi for a pleasant ride along the river to Rick’s on the River, featuring live music and fresh oysters too — if you’re still hungry.

Next stop is dinner at one of Tampa’s premier locations for Modern American Cuisine, Mise en Place, which serves exciting and dynamic fare reflecting the Chef’s insatiable love of food as well as the region and global community on the West Coast of Florida.

Make sure you’re in your seats at the Raymond James Stadium — also known as “Ray Jay” — for the 8:40 pm kickoff. The north end zone is known as Buccaneer Cove, anchored by the signature 103-foot pirate ship, which shoots off cannons to mark every touchdown and field goal.

Finish out the evening with a jaunt along Howard Avenue — otherwise known as Tampa’s Soho (South of Howard Ave.) district — where there are several places to see and be seen, including World of Beer, Yard of Ale, Dubliner, and The Lodge. Late night pizza at The Deck is always a favorite as well.
