Fun & Free Near TPA Airport

There is no shortage of Tampa events at any time of the year. There are even places that are fun to visit without a special event going on.

Get Moving

If you like to sight-see on foot, Tampa is a great place to do it. Tampa’s popular foot trails are quite long, though.

You may want to have your airport limo shuttle drop you off on one end and pick you up on the other. That way you have plenty of time to rest on your way back to the hotel or airport.
