A few miles south of the hotel is Busch Gardens Tampa, one of the area's main attractions. The amusement - safari park has activities for children of all ages and offers an opportunity to view many critters rarely found outside of their native Africa. Roller coasters and other rides add to the appeal, while nearby Adventure Island offers aquatic activities to help visitors cool off. Also near the parks is Tampa's first-rate Museum of Science and Industry.
Head to the waterfront, where you'll find the fascinating Florida Aquarium and a promenade where the cargo and cruise ships dock. Ybor City is not to be missed -- its shops and cafes still carry the Latin flavors brought there by the Spanish and Cubans who first made the district home.
