Cool Outdoor Weekend Activities

Cool Outdoor Weekend Activities

I just moved to Tampa a few months ago, so it’s safe to say that I’m still learning my way around the area and constantly figuring out what to check out next. Personally, I prefer to keep myself busy on the weekends, especially with outdoor activities (some fresh air is good after working inside all week). With that being said, I’ve been researching fun outdoor activities to do in Tampa! Luckily, in a city this great there definitely isn’t a shortage of cool places to go and fun things to do!  According to my research, here are a few cool places to check out :
  • Experience some thrilling rides at Busch Gardens
  • Take a blanket and enjoy a nice picnic at Curtis Hixon Park
  • Check out the wildlife at Lowry Park Zoo (maybe even feed them!)
  • Walk around and enjoy the music, activities, and wide selection of food and drinks offered at Sparkman Wharf
  • If you’re a dog owner, bring your pupper to the Davis Island dog beach and let them splash around
  • Once it cools off, take an evening stroll down the Tampa Riverwalk
One other place that I found extra interesting was the Big Cat Rescue. This is a non-profit, educational sanctuary for big cats (lions, tigers, and bobcats just to name a few). Here visitors can schedule a tour to see and learn more about these incredible animals. Whether you decide to check out one of these cool places or any other fun spot in town, I hope you enjoy every minute of it because you deserve to have some fun!
