The beaches around Tampa are beautiful and a wonderful vacation spot for families however the city isn’t really that interesting in my opinion. I hoped the historic cigar manufacturing neighborhood of Ybor City woub be interesting but it was disappointingly dead.
Traffic can be bad around the highways but there are a lot of diverse options for food! It's a pretty clean city but summers are super hot here. They have Busch Gardens, a zoo, Dinosaur World and a lot of other attractions! It is a great city to visit as a family for kids.
I only been to Tampa once, quick stop on the highway to Orlando. I need to visit again and stay by the beaches.
Tampa is OK. The city itself can be seedy in parts, but Ybor City is super cool. Plus Busch Gardens is here and there's lots of cool little towns nearby with amazing beaches. Swimming in the warm Gulf is amazing! I really like this area of Florida.
