Places to Go

Tampa is home to Busch Gardens, known for its Africa-themed attractions, death-defying rollercoasters and exotic animals. In January, Tampa is flooded with pirate fans donning their best eye patches and swords for the Gasparilla Pirate Festival, a spirited celebration of the pirate José Gaspar.
