Egmont Key State Park
This 440-acre island is the home to one of the last government-operated lighthouses, built in 1858, in the nation. It is still an active navigational aide to all ships entering Tampa Bay. Now a wildlife refuge, Egmont Key was a camp for captured Seminoles during the Third Seminole War and was a Union Navy base during the Civil War.  Several boats offer snorkeling excursions to this island which is accessible only by boat. Egmont Key also has a variety of significant natural resources, including a large population of gopher tortoises, and its beach is used as a nesting area by loggerhead sea turtles. More info

Fort DeSoto Park
The largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, this park consists of 1,136 acres made up of five interconnected islands. The 12-inch mortar battery, located at the fort for which the park was named, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. The park offers boating, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, bicycling, skating, running, nature trails, historical fort, fishing piers, doggy beach, shelling, birding, camping, and swimming.

The Pinellas Trail is a 47-mile fitness trail built on abandoned railways. One of the longest linear parks in the United States, it runs from Tarpon Springs to the north to its terminus in south St. Petersburg. More info

Sunken Gardens
A hidden gem inside city limits, everything is in bloom at Sunken Gardens' exotic collection of more than 50,000 tropical plants and flowers. The four-acre botanical attraction features a butterfly garden, wedding lawn, a walk-through aviary with exotic species of birds, and an orchid arbor. This garden is open seven days a week. More info

The Florida Aquarium
Journey through the bay aboard the Bay Spirit, our 72-foot powered catamaran, allows guests to encounter the awesome animals that thrive in these local waters. The only requirement is a sense of adventure.  Located in Tampa, approximately 30 minutes away. More info

Ybor City
Known as Tampa’s Latin Quarter for over a century, Ybor City is an exotic blend of aromas, flavors, sights and sounds.  From the scent of roasting Cuban coffee early in the morning to the rhythms of Latin music late into the night, Ybor is a feast for the senses.
Choose from a variety of cuisine just by strolling down La Setima, the main street of the Historic District.  Browse eclectic shops and art galleries, visit one of the museums, see a “hand-rolled cigar” being made or just relax and “people watch”.
 Red brick buildings, wrought iron balconies and narrow brick streets give it an old-world charm that is a refreshing change of pace from the beach and the mall. More info
