Many in Florida have adopted the mantra - "We live where others vacation!"
It’s easy to go on a ‘staycation’ in the Tampa Bay area with the beaches close and many local attractions to appease every generation.
Here is a short list of staycation ideas to help you find the perfect staycation adventure for your family!
Take a trip into an enchanted world by visiting Mermaids at Weeki Wachee, joining the pirate ranks with Captain Memo's Pirate Cruise, or step back in time at the Tampa Theater by enjoying a wide range of independent, foreign, and documentary films.
With a less than 2 hour drive to the major Orlando theme parks, Tampa residents have access to visit these attractions that many people spend years saving up to be able to visit. Many families in Tampa hold annual passes to Disney World, Universal Studios, or Legoland and enjoy these throughout the year!
