Tampa Bay offers an array of interesting places to visit and explore, including beautiful beaches, aquariums, theme parks, breweries, art museums, parks, and restaurants. But whether you’re a local or a tourist, there are plenty of spots you might be missing.
Why not step into the dark night in Ybor City to discover the streets and spaces where stories of early immigrants unfold on a walking ghost tour? Or watch the 1940s sponge diving video and then soak up the Greek culture and kooky kitsch at Spongeorama in Tarpon Springs. Climb through the great aboveground root forest at Edward Medard Conservation Park in Plant City. Or wait for the first weekend of each month and dig through the treasures at Brocante Vintage Market in St. Pete. In this second edition of 100 Things to Do in Tampa Bay Before You Die, you’ll find one hundred ideas to help you get to know Tampa Bay, or get to know it even better.
When Kristen Hare learned her family was moving from Missouri to Tampa Bay for what was supposed to be one year, she decided they’d live like resident tourists. That was six years ago. But the exploring and adventuring haven’t stopped. Kristen is a journalist, an eager traveler, a former Peace Corps Volunteer, and still a St. Louis Cardinals fan. She’s joined on most of her adventures by her husband, Jai; her son, Max; and her daughter, Leela.
