With free live music, fireworks, kid’s play zones, and sand sculpting classes there’s more fun to have during the festival than grains of sand on Clearwater Beach.”

20 Fun Outdoor Activities in the Tampa Bay Area

, ,

20 Fun Outdoor Activities in the Tampa Bay Area

The Tampa Bay area is filled with fun outdoor activities for every age and interest!

1. Pier 60

Clearwater Beach, Florida is the #1 Best Beach in America and Pier 60 is the heart of America’s Best Beach. Pier 60 is full of family-friendly activities. There are large playground areas for the kids, fishing off the end of the pier, beautiful beach views, sugar-white soft sand, calm ocean waves, lifeguards nearby, large beach slides, and much more! Every day there is a Clearwater Beach Sunset Festival with local crafters selling their items, street performers, and often times live music. Pier 60 also is the location of many of the Clearwater Beach events including the Sugar Sand Festival. Stick around after sunset for free outdoor movies under the stars!

2. Caladesi Island / Honeymoon Island

Not far from Clearwater Beach you can find a totally different beach experience. You can find a much smaller beach with tree lines even touching into the ocean. This beautiful area provides almost private beach areas during the week. This area is known as Caladesi Island. There are two ways to access Caladesi Island. You can drive to Honeymoon Island in the Dunedin area and take a ferry to Caladesi Island, or you can walk to Caladesi Island from Clearwater Beach. It’s a long walk, but the directions are easy… just keep walking North on Clearwater Beach!

In my opinion, the best time to visit Caladesi Island is during the week. Look up days when the Ferry isn’t running and you’ll have the whole place to yourself!

3. Bok Tower Gardens

Bok Tower Gardens is a “must see Florida attraction” centrally located between Tampa and Orlando among rolling hills of citrus! Our nearly 50 acres of Olmsted gardens, 2.5 acre children’s garden Hammock Hollow, 20-room Pinewood Estate Mediterranean-style mansion and the 205-foot art deco and neo-Gothic Singing Tower carillon is a place that has fascinated millions of Florida visitors.”

4. Hillsborough River State Park

Hillsborough River State Park is located just outside of Tampa, Florida and is a beautiful escape from the busy city. The park offers over 7 miles of hiking trails, a class II river rapids for kayaking and canoeing, and more!

5. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

6. Fort De Soto

“Whether you are sitting on the beach or kayaking near the still water’s edge at Fort De Soto, you find yourself absorbed in the abundance of natural beauty for as far as the eye can see. The complexity of the ecology is not immediately apparent, but the park offers the greatest diversity of systems just about anywhere.

7. Zootampa

“Five-time winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence (2010-2015), ZooTampa at Lowry Park is one of the most popular zoos in the southeastern US, with over 1 million visitors annually. The Zoo originated in the 1930’s as a municipal department with a small number of Florida native species. It grew gradually throughout the next four decades, but struggled to meet the developing professional standards of modern zoos. In 1982, community leaders created the Lowry Park Zoo Association to take over management of the Zoo for the City of Tampa with the goal of creating a world-class zoo through a public-private partnership. The Association then became the Lowry Park Zoological Society of Tampa, Inc., as it remains today. Working with a national zoo designer, the Society was able to create a modern, 24-acre facility that opened to the public in 1988 and shortly after earned Accreditation by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). ZooTampa has now grown to what now encompasses 56 acres of naturalistic animal exhibits in a lush, tropical garden setting. The Zoo offers popular educational programming, fun recreational amenities, up-close animal encounters and engaging seasonal events for which it has won accolades as one of the country’s most family-friendly zoos.”

12. Ballast Point Park and Pier

“Name for the spot where arriving ships would off-load their ballast to enter the harbor, Ballast Point Park and Pier is located in a quiet neighborhood of South Tampa. It features a wonderful splash park for the kids, a large playground area, shade trees and picnic tables. One of the most impressive features of the park is the view of the downtown skyline and Davis Islands. There is a long pier that juts out into the Bay and a conveniently located bait house if you wish to try your hand at fishing. Alternatively, you can grab a bite at the Taste of Boston restaurant. The food is good and you can sit outside and enjoy the views. There is also a boat dock and ramp.”

Tips for Traveling with a Baby

Tips for Traveling with a Baby - Clearwater Beach Florida

Traveling with a baby can be stressful if you’re not prepared. Planning from the beginning, even before the trip is booked, can make the experience a lot less stressful and fun experience for the whole family!

My wife and I took my daughter on her first trip when she was two months old. We went to the #1 Beach in America, Clearwater Beach, Florida! Here’s what we learned about traveling with a baby. These tips will help you keep traveling with a baby fun and relaxing!

Tips For Planning the Trip with a Baby

When planning to travel with a baby, the first thing you need to figure out is if your baby is even old enough to travel! I found that most airlines would allow babies to travel starting at just 2 weeks old! That was a bit early for me.

My wife and I also asked our pediatrician some questions about traveling with our daughter and he recommended waiting until ~2 months old. This would allow for her immune system to develop a little bit more and she would have some vaccinations as well. Regardless of age, I recommend asking your pediatrician if your baby is ready to travel for the first time just to be safe.

It also wouldn’t hurt to check with the airline about their rules for flying with a baby before booking tickets. You may want to ask things such as if you need to buy a ticket for your child (usually free), how to register a child for a ticket, what paperwork is required for the child to travel, etc. Understand what is needed and the check-in process of traveling with a baby will help make the travel day much easier.

When talking with the airline, you can also ask questions about the TSA rules and how to get through security. Getting through security can be more difficult with everything for the baby, including liquids such as breastmilk (frozen or not) or even the pump equipment.

Another way to make getting through security even easier is the register for TSA PreCheck. “With a 5 year, $85 membership, you can speed through security and don’t need to remove your: shoes, laptops, liquids, belts and light jackets.” This speeds the whole process up and makes it easier when your hands are already full with your child, your bags, their bags, car seat, stroller, etc. If you sign up from TSA PreCheck, your child does not have to sign up, they will be approved to go through TSA PreCheck with you until age 12. Children 13 and older must have their own TSA PreCheck approval.

Speaking of carrying all of that stuff through security, you may not have to take as much as you think you do. If you’re going to rent a vehicle, check with the rental company to see if they also rent car seats – you may not have to unlatch your car seat from your car (which is difficult on its own) and relatch and unlatch in the rental cars as well.

You can also talk with your hotel or condo management company and see if they can provide anything for your baby, such as a Pack n Play and possibly even a high chair. If you’re staying with us at B&W Management, ask us what all we can provide for you! Pack less, relax, and enjoy your stay on America’s #1 Best Beach!

Packing Tips for a Baby

When it comes to packing for a baby, my #1 tip is not to pack everything into a checked bag. Pack a carry on that includes enough clothes, diapers, and wipes for your baby for roughly two days. Packing a smaller carry on will keep you fully prepared for any unknown issues that may popup such as lost luggage, missed flights, or even just a surprising second blow out on travel day (and a diaper bag that needed just one more change of clothes than it had in it).

Second tip: you don’t need everything. You’re packing too much. Pack light so you don’t have to carry so much. You’re already going to be carrying more than you used to. Check to see if you have access to a washer and dryer. (Our beachfront condos all come with a washer and dryer directly in each condo!) If they do, pack fewer clothes for your baby and less for you! Just do a quick load of laundry while you’re on vacation. Don’t pack so many diapers, wipes, sunscreen, medications, etc… there are many grocery stores (and Target) nearby Clearwater Beach, and if you’re going somewhere else I’m sure you’ll be able to find a store nearby as well. Instead of packing everything for a week or longer – pack for a few days and make a quick stop to buy what you need when you arrive at your destination.

When making a packing list, don’t forget to add things such as a sound machine and the baby monitor. A sound machine will help block out unusual noises of sleeping in a new location. A baby monitor will allow you to keep an eye on your baby while in different areas of the condo – including sitting on the balcony overlooking the beach!

Travel Day Tips with a Baby

When it comes to driving, there are not many tips I have to offer. Prepare for frequent stops if needed, bring snacks, relax, and take turns driving/relaxing/entertaining the baby.

If you’re flying with your baby, I have some tips to help with that. In addition to packing light… arrive early. You’ll need to check-in with your baby at the desk area of your airline. They’ll need to print additional boarding passes for you and your baby.

If you are bringing a stroller and car seat, see if they have the ability to connect. If they do, use it! It’s worth being able to connect them and not have to carry them separately. Don’t check the stroller and car seat when you check bags, gate check them. Gate checking the stroller and car seat allows you to use them until right before boarding the flight! If your child is young enough not to need a stroller, consider not bringing one. You may be able to get away with just using a baby carrier. These are much smaller, making travel easier. We didn’t bring a stroller on our trip to Clearwater Beach, and we didn’t miss it. The baby carrier worked very well. Also, strollers don’t work well in sand. I saw a couple of people fighting with their strollers on the beach throughout the week – they all get stuck and are not useful.

My last two tips, and probably most important flying tips!

#1. Before boarding the plane, change your baby’s diaper. You have way more space. It’s much more manageable before getting on the plane with enclosed space.

#2. Feed your baby during take-off and landing. Feeding your baby during these times helps the baby clear the pressure build-up that causes ear pain. Babies don’t know how to clear their ears yet, they need help, and breastfeeding or taking a bottle during take-off and landing helps!

Traveling with a Baby Tips

Once your vacation starts, relax, and stay flexible. Things will not go as planned, and it is okay. Enjoy showing your baby more of the world (even if they’re sleeping and don’t see much of it). Enjoy the new experiences with them. The texted of soft sand, the warm water, watching the seagulls fly, and when they’re napping in your arms enjoy holding them with beautiful beach views.

If your baby has set nap schedules and bedtimes (my daughter does, and she tells me if I don’t follow her rules) do your best to keep those schedules. Our condos offer full kitchens to cook in for your favorite foods. If you want some local food for dinner but it’s almost bedtime for the baby, no worries, many places deliver or have delicious to-go orders, and it’s still hot and warm when you get it back to the condo.

If you feel like people are watching you, they probably aren’t. But sometimes they actually are but they’re usually remembering the times they’ve spent with their families, admiring your family and seeing your happiness makes them happy as well. If you’re in a less than happy moment and are struggling, know everyone has been there and if someone offers help even if it’s just by holding the door because your hands are full – allow help when it will help.

Relax, play, and enjoy a wonderful family vacation with your baby!


What tips would you add to these? I’ll be taking another trip with my daughter soon and I’m always open to more advice on traveling with a baby, and now a soon to be toddler!
