Explore Tampa.

Grab your swimsuit and your favorite pair of sunglasses and indulge yourself in the white sand beaches that stretch along the western coast of Florida. Tampa Bay is home to numerous beaches known for crystal-clear waters and a beach-walk promenade. Check out Fort DeSoto, a gorgeous barrier island that also has a 1,136-acre park for nature hikes or getting out on the water for boating. For a more secluded excursion, be sure to check out Shell Key Preserve, an island only accessible by public ferry or private boat where you have a good chance of spotting dolphins and other wildlife.

Head back inland to explore many of Tampa’s museums and state parks. Ybor City Museum State Park invites you to experience the rich history of Ybor City, a historical neighborhood located northeast of downtown Tampa. Another neighborhood to check out is the Channel District, known as Florida’s largest seaport where commercial freighters and sailboats call home.

Come face-to-face with exotic animals at the Big Cat Rescue inside Citrus Park. The Big Cat Rescue is an animal sanctuary devoted to rescuing, housing, and rehabilitating native wild cats and other felines. Take part in a number of guided tours to learn more about these animals. Get a look into a life of luxury when you head over to the Henry B. Plant Museum. Formerly a resort hotel during the Gilded Age, it’s now designated a National Historic Landmark where you can see magnificent grounds featuring a racetrack, golf course, and more.

No matter if you’re soaking up the sun or seeing the sights, Tampa delivers on a great time. Ready for take-off on your next adventure? Southwest is here to help!
