Next on my list of things to do in Tampa Bay Florida: Tampa Bay History Center. Entertaining, informative and relaxing stroll through Native Americans, pirates, Buccaneers, orange groves and cigar factories. A good place to add to your tourist schedule.
Kids will love an outing to Cypress Point Park on Tampa Bay Florida. It's right in the approach path to Tampa International Airport and the planes fly quite low and directly over this park. It's a great picnic venue with built-in entertainment, plus it's on the water in a fairly quiet area (if you don't count the jet engine noise).
