Our Day in Downtown Tampa

We kicked off our day at Buddy Brew in Park Tower. Nothing says good morning like coffee! Then we headed over to Curtis Hixon Park for some beautiful views of downtown and a walk along the Riverwalk. We kicked back at The Sail Plaza, conveniently located on the Tampa Riverwalk and overlooks the Bay. Then we took in the views from above at the J.W. Marriott Six Rooftop. We got around downtown in true Tampa fashion with the Pirate Water Taxi. Our day finished up with happy hour at Haiku.

FAQs

Our most frequently asked questions about Downtown Tampa What are the “must-do things” in downtown Tampa? Some of our favorite spots include: Is downtown Tampa family-friendly? Absolutely! From the Glazer Children’s Museum to the Florida Aquarium, there is so much fun to be had for the whole family! Is downtown Tampa safe at night? Areas like the Tampa Riverwalk and Curtis Hixon Park are great to explore at night because they are well-lit areas. Are most attractions/locations walkable? Some are close in distance, but downtown Tampa offers various transportation services such as the Teco Line Streetcar, Pirate Water Taxi, In-Towner Trolley, HART Buses, Downtowner, Coast Bike Share and City Bike Tampa, Uber & Lyft, and BIRD Scooters. Is it best to park on the street or in a parking garage? There are both options, but we love using the park mobile app on your phone, it is so easy to keep track of your meter.
