An addition to the Things to Do in Tampa Bay Florida series: Florida Aquarium, just down the street from the Tampa Bay History Center Museum in Channelside. The Aquarium has thorough native Florida exhibits and exotic creatures from around the world; it's a very family-friendly place.
Another in my series of what to do with out-of-town visitors near Tampa Bay, Florida. In Christmas, FL, Jungle Adventures is a little farther afield than most of my destinations, but well worth a visit. Live gators, panthers, peacocks, tortoises - you name it. The staff is enthusiastic and the building is unforgettable.
Continuing the series of inexpensive daytrips near the Tampa Bay, Florida, area, this week I present the murals on the Mazzaro Italian Market buildings in St. Petersburg.

Plus, buy my books and blog gear to fulfill your holiday shopping list!
Come with me on a walking tour of Denver, Colorado: historic restaurants on 17th Avenue, view the Denver Post and Capitol buildings plus the pedestrian-friendly 16th Street Mall with shopping, food and entertainment. Lots of travel photos, including images and details on Sweet Action Ice Cream Shop in the Baker neighborhood.
