Visitors Guide

Super Bowl XLIII

As the nation's 54th largest city, Tampa offers a unique and exciting experience for everyone. A visit to our ever-growing downtown area, or the exciting Channelside and Ybor entertainment districts, will provide you with plenty to see and do. Whether you choose to relax at an outdoor cafe, stroll along the Riverwalk or unwind at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park it will be evident how much we have put into ensuring a safe and enjoyable environment.

We have exciting nightlife, a diverse selection of great restaurants and some of the state's best attractions, including the Florida Aquarium, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, and Lowry Park Zoo. Of particular note is new Tampa Bay History Center and the recently opened Tampa Museum of Art, both are state of the art facilities honoring our community's history, heritage, and commitment to the arts.

We hope you enjoy your stay with us and come back soon.
