Four Amazing Tampa Attractions for Residents
The list of great attractions in Tampa is almost endless. However, these are some of the most popular things to do in Tampa when you want a great day out.
The Tampa Theatre is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon or evening. It’s been entertaining Tampa residents since 1926 with movies, live performances and even wine tasting events, and it’s one of the city’s most popular attractions. You can even rent the theatre for your own use.

Even if you’re not an avid angler, you’ll love the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. It lights up at night to create a dazzling panoramic view of the water, and it’s a great place to enjoy the scenery and watch the boats go by.
Location: The north and south sides of the Skyway Bridge on I-275
The Lowry Park Zoo has more than 1,000 animals living in close semblances of their natural, wild habitats. Engaging exhibits thrill visitors, and in some cases, you can even interact with the animals. Annual zoo passes are available, as are VIP tours and experiences – including behind-the-scenes tours of the world-famous manatee hospital.
Location: 1101 West Sligh Avenue, Tampa
The Big Cat Rescue is committed to preserving the health and well-being of big cats, including leopards, lions and tigers. They save the cats from horrific conditions – in some cases, private ownership and in others, run-down zoos without the capability of giving the animals proper care – and give them the best possible futures. You can visit the cats, and they have specific tours for kids and families (as well as feeding tours).
Location: 12802 Easy Street, Tampa
