Things to do in Tampa

If you step outside our doors, you can explore the best of things to do in Tampa and soak in the warmth of the Florida sun.  Don't miss the these exciting nearby Tampa attractions:

Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay, one of the world's great secluded harbors, is a vast body of water separated from the Gulf of Mexico by a peninsula that stretches from Clearwater on the north to St. Petersburg on the south. In the center of the huge bay is a peninsula with MacDill Air Force Base at its southern tip.

WestShore Plaza
WestShore Plaza is one of Tampa's premier shopping destinations with a mix of shopping, dining and a luxury 14-screen theater.

Raymond James Stadium
Raymond James Stadium is home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the South Florida Bulls.  The stadium is also host to the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day.

Tampa Bay Times Forum
The Tampa Bay Times Forum encompasses 670,000 square feet with three decks and seven separate levels. The arena is home to the Lightning and the Tampa Bay Storm.

Busch Gardens/University of South Florida
The Busch Gardens/University of South Florida region is where you will find Tampa's famed Busch Gardens, only about 10 minutes from the hotel. Other attractions in the vicinity include the Tampa Greyhound Track, the Museum of Science & Industry, Adventure Island water park and the D. G. Yuengling Brewery.

Downtown Tampa
Tampa's Hillsborough River winds its way through the Busch Gardens/University of South Florida section of the city and through downtown Tampa, bisecting the city as it makes its way to the sea.  Points of interest in this part of town include the Tampa Museum of Art, the Florida Aquarium and the Tampa Performing Arts Center.

Ybor City
Known as Tampa's Latin Quarter for over a century, Ybor City is an exotic blend of aromas, flavors, sights and sounds.  Choose from a variety of cuisine - Spanish, Cuban, Italian, Greek and French - just by strolling down La Setima, the main street of the Historic District. Browse eclectic shops and art galleries or visit one of the museums.  Ybor is alive with a variety of entertainment that makes it one of Florida's top-ranked nightspots. Red brick buildings, wrought iron balconies and narrow brick streets give it an old-world charm.  Ybor city is also home to many of Tampa's LGBT clubs, lounges, and restaurants. This district of Ybor is also known as GAYbor.

Plant City
Traveling east of Tampa on I-4, built to connect Tampa to Daytona through Orlando, will bring you to Plant City, a farming community renowned for its annual Strawberry Festival and an array of related special events. There are also several interesting shops and restaurants here.

Clearwater Beach
Clearwater Beach is home of pristine white sand beaches, clear gulf waters, warm sunshine, and plenty of hospitality. Meet Winter, the world's most famous dolphin at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. See the Champion Philadelphia Phillies during Spring training at beautiful Bright House Field. Enjoy the nightly "Sunsets at Pier 60" Festival where sunsets, music, magic and fun create lasting memories. Come to watch the National Superboat Championships or the Ironman. And don't miss the Internationally recognized Clearwater Jazz Festival!

Channelside
Channelside has every kind of entertainment: complementary catamaran cruises, IMAX movies, extreme games, dance clubs, piano bars, and unique shops and restaurants. Stroll the waterfront and watch the Port of Tampa at work, explore a 3D cave at the IMAX theater, or play state of the art arcade games.

Florida Aquarium
Located in the Channelside area of Tampa, during your visit to The Florida Aquarium you can follow the path of a drop of water from the underground aquifer to the deep sea, see birds, plants and sea creatures of all descriptions in near-natural habitats.

Tampa Bay History Center
For a glimpse into the city's past, visit the Tampa Bay History Center.

Tampa Museum of Art  
Featuring traveling art from all over the world, The Tampa Museum of Art has been serving the public for the past 30 years and continues to attract famous artist’s exhibitions. The Tampa Museum of Art is convenient to the Sheraton Tampa Riverwalk Hotel, at a 10 minute walk away.

Glazer Children's Museum
Explore the new Glazer Children's Museum and watch your children work with the "hands on" exhibits and exercise their imaginations.

Moccasin Lake Nature Park
Clearwater is known for its natural beauty. You can explore the wilderness at the Moccasin Lake Nature Park.

The Dali Museum
The new Dali Museum is one of a kind. Dali's art, at once classically-based and provocatively imaginative, resonates in the geometry of the concrete and the astonishing flow of glass from the fractured center of the building. The Dali Museum is iconic and a beacon of the arts scene in downtown St. Petersburg. Entertain the possibility of the fantastical as the place and the art invite you to look beyond.

Sunsets at Pier 60
The Sunsets at Pier 60 Festival is a nightly sunset celebration that takes place in Pier 60 Park on Clearwater Beach, Florida. This free family event features artisans, crafters, street performers and live musical entertainment, weather permitting. Bring the family to Clearwater's Pier 60 for a free film screening every Friday and Saturday. Bring a blanket or low sitting chair and watch a movie on the jumbo screen with popcorn and soft drinks.
