Three Fun Fall Things To Do in Tampa, Florida
- The Official Ybor City Ghost Tour

The Official Ybor City Ghost Tour is an opportunity to see the sights and hear the stories of Tampa’s famous historic district, which is charming by day and quite chilling by night! The tour allows visitors to be led by an experienced guide through the district – it lasts about two hours and leads you into historic buildings that have their own tales of harrowing history that is perfect for October nights.
ZooTampa at Lowry Park comes alive with animals and reptiles native to Florida, but many other animals, as well, including giraffes, rhinos, zebras, and lots of birds! It even has an area that is devoted to Australian wildlife for those wishing for a peak of The Outback. This zoo has been rated #1 for families by Parents magazine, and the zoo is a 56-acre non profit facility that is dedicated to giving the animals the habitats they deserve. A tip from locals – go in the morning; that’s when the animals are out and about and most active!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is African themed, so it’s a wild safari adventure with even wilder rides! It has six famous jaw-dropping rollercoasters for the daredevils amongst us, and plenty of peaceful land to observe some exotic creatures in an environments that allows park-goers to handfeed kangaroos!
