Tampa: Family Fun for Everyone
If there’s one city, in the United States, that can truthfully claim to be a family friendly city – it’s Tampa, Florida. Literally, every member of your family can enjoy the charms of this city; and yes, that includes your feline and canine friends. Like its sister cities in the state, Tampa has plenty of beaches and an amusement park for your enjoyment. However, history buffs will enjoy it here too and there are a few museums for your choosing. Sports fans will appreciate it – unless these are your rival teams, of course. Cigar connoisseurs will never want to leave. Wherever you fit, and even if you don’t, into these demographics, Tampa will have something for you. So make it your next vacation destination!
Everything’s Pet Friendly in Tampa (Almost)
Tampa is made for families with animals and for people who love animals, even if you don’t own one personally. No matter what part of Tampa you’re in, whether it’s the heart of downtown or near the airport, there will be plenty of places for you, and your pet, to sleep. One example is, Courtyard Tampa Brandon. Although this hotel is not particularly close to downtown Tampa, it’s constantly rated high as one of the best hotels to stay in with your pet. Cats and dogs are welcomed here. Plus, there’s no specific weight limit for your pet. The best part though? You won’t be charged an additional pet fee! Complimentary parking is also offered, so you’ll be able to drive to the heart of the city, with no problems. Another great hotel is the Fairfield Inn & Suites Tampa Fairgrounds-Casino. This hotel praises itself on being ideal for business and leisure. Not to mention, it’s also great for your pet. There is a $25 pet fee, for either your cat or dog. However, staying here will be worth it. Located near the Florida State Fairgrounds, the Tampa Convention Center, the Seminole Hard Rock Casino and other attractions, this hotel is also not far from the city’s center. So you’re literally surrounded by everything and there’s free breakfast, for under $90 a night!
Keeping up with the city’s love for animals, there are some attractions that seem to be dedicated to animals also. For example, the Busch Gardens – the popular amusement park with animal exhibits based on the Serengeti Plain, the Myombe Reserve and other African safari themes. They also have “theme land” based areas, such as, Morocco, the Congo, Egypt and more. However, visitors and locals will tell you the best part is getting up close and personal with the park’s exotic creatures; the kangaroo feeding experiences is a favorite amongst kids. The Big Cat Rescue is another animal lover’s favorite. Even though it looks like a zoo, it’s more of an animal sanctuary. While visiting, you’ll have the chance to learn all about the cats of the wild. For the actual zoo experience, make sure you visit the Lowry Park Zoo.
