More Things to Do in Tampa Bay

Influencer of the Week - @thetampaguide

Tampa is by far one of the best cities! While doing literally anything in Tampa would make me happy, two of my favorite weekend activities are grabbing a coffee at Buddy Brew and walking the Riverwalk.

Buddy Brew has always been a South Tampa staple and it will continue to be one of my favorite places to grab an iced vanilla latte. You canโ€™t go wrong with any of the locations, but I especially admire the Buddy Brew in Hyde Park. Something about a stroll through the village under the palm trees with my coffee in hand makes me feel all the 813 magic.

In a perfect world, I would grab a coffee and walk the Riverwalk on the same day. The Tampa skyline and the sunshine remind me of how much spirit everyone in Tampa holds for our city. Of course, you can bike, run, walk, or boat the Riverwalk but walking straight to Armature Works to get a Tampa Girl empanada at Empamamas is the perfect way to end the perfect day in Tampa Bay.

You can check out all my TPA adventures over on @thetampaguide or follow me on my personal over at @heygirlitzshanman. Be sure to also check out this awesome top from Tampa local business, Crรจme de la Crรจme!
