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

Busch Gardens Theme Park is fun for the whole family! It provides some amazing rides and zoo experience at the same time with many animals throughout the park. Travel across the world all in the same park!

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. Emerging from the wealth of bird life, sea life, wild life and plant life is the majestic tapestry called Fort De Soto.”

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.”

8. Sunken Gardens

Sunken Gardens is a botanical paradise in the midst of a bustling city. As St. Petersburg’s oldest living museum, this 100-year-old garden is home to some of the oldest tropical plants in the region.

Unwind as you stroll through meandering paths, lush with exotic plants from around the world. Explore cascading waterfalls, beautiful demonstration gardens, more than 50,000 tropical plants, and flowers.”

9. Tampa Riverwalk

Walk around the waterfront in downtown Tampa and experience beautiful views, delicious restaurants and more on the Tampa Riverwalk.

10. Dinosaur World

“Conveniently located between Orlando and Tampa in Plant City, Florida. Dinosaur World Florida is Central Florida’s only attraction dedicated to the giants of years past. Encounter a wide variety of dinosaurs in a unique, natural lush garden setting.”

Featuring dinosaur-themed playgrounds, beautiful outdoor areas and more!

11. Ybor City

“There is so much more to explore in Ybor! It’s not just Tampa’s playground, it’s historically different with a thriving influx of growing corporations and small businesses, eclectic retail stores, diverse restaurants and a growing number of new residential units for people calling Ybor City home.

Conveniently located just northeast of downtown, Ybor City is the only neighborhood on Florida’s west coast to be designated a National Historic Landmark District. Founded by Vicente Martinez-Ybor, the district has enjoyed a rich and diverse culture for more than a century.”

12. Big Cat Rescue

“Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate for ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction.  We are the most hated, feared and lied about by circuses, backyard breeders, roadside zoos, cub petting pimps apseudo-sanctuariesies because we are the most effective at ending the abuse of big cats.  We wear that as a badge of honor.

We are home to lions, tigers, bobcats, cougarsservals, caracals, jaguar and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.”

13. Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks

Whiskey Joe’s invites you to grab a couple of our famous tacos in the dining room, soak up some sunshine and sweet waterfront views on our patio or relax under a palapa on our large private beach.

Attendees are serenaded by five musical acts each day. Each performance will surely get your hips moving and arms waving.

A stroll through the food village will surround you with aromas of fresh grouper, cajun shrimp, large dishes of paella, and that’s only the beginning. There are also other options for our non-seafood loving friends. This Festival is free for the public to enjoy and there are also VIP and reserved seating packages available as well. ”

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!

“Beginning with a look at Florida’s first peoples, who inhabited the peninsula some 10,000 years ago, and the arrival of European explorers in the 1500s, to Tampa Bay’s modern role as a port city, industrial capital of west central Florida and a draw for tourists and visitors the world over, the History Center tells the story of Tampa Bay’s and Florida’s history, heritage and culture.

The History Center is also home to the Touchton Map Library/Florida Center for Cartographic Education.

Henry B. Plant Museum

401 W. Kennedy Boulevard, Tampa, FL 33606

“Since 1933, the Tampa Bay Hotel has been home to the Henry B. Plant Museum and The University of Tampa. The building, renamed Plant Hall, is a National Historic Landmark. The Henry B. Plant Museum holds the distinction of accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums. Its mission is to interpret the history and lifestyle of America’s Gilded Age and the life and significant contributions of Henry Bradley Plant to the development of Florida and Tampa Bay. Original furnishings and artifacts and a dynamic self-guided audio tour immerse visitors in the opulence of the 1891 Tampa Bay Hotel and its rich history.

The building was bought by the city in 1904 after the death of Henry Plant in 1899. It operated as a hotel until 1932. In 1933, the Tampa Municipal Museum was established in the south wing of the first floor in order to preserve the legacy of the Tampa Bay Hotel. The remainder of the building, as well as the property, became home to The University of Tampa. The Museum houses original Hotel furnishings and art objects collected by Mr. and Mrs. Plant from Europe and the Orient. The Tampa Municipal Museum became the Henry B. Plant Museum in 1974. Since then, its mission has been to interpret the Tampa Bay Hotel at the turn-of-the-century and the Victorian lifestyles of America’s Gilded Age for people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of interest. The Museum seeks to transport the visitor through educational exhibits and events to the late Victorian period, the beginning of Florida’s tourist industry, and the early years of the city of Tampa.”

It was founded with the purpose of preserving Florida’s rural heritage in 1978 by Mildred W. & Doyle E. Carlton, Jr. The museum holds a collection of 13 original buildings dating from 1870-1912 which were relocated from across the state of Florida. Our buildings range from public buildings like our Terry Store and Okahumpka Train Depot, to private buildings like our Carlton and Smith homes. Today, the historically furnished buildings recreate the lifestyles of the past, and costumed interpreters portray daily living as Florida pioneers.”

The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art

150 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

“The James Museum has its roots in the deeply felt passion for art and culture shared by co-founders Tom and Mary James, and in the couple’s love for St. Petersburg, the city where they live.

Years ago, when their travels took them out West, they were captivated by the art, landscape and wildlife. The art of action and attention to place created by contemporary artists greatly moved them, and they began buying pieces not only for their personal pleasure, but also to help the artists earn a living. These two dedicated patrons of the arts collected works in oil, in ink, in stone; works that define genres yet defy labels; works that evoke the spirit of a wide open frontier and the beauty of life in the wild. Since their first acquisition, a vast artistic legacy has grown — one populated by emerging artists and living legends and filled with tribal tradition and classical finesse.

In building this splendid home for a part of their vast personal collection of Western and wildlife art, Tom and Mary also have succeeded in their aim to share their vision and devotion to art with you and thousands of others.”

Tampa Firefighters Museum

720 Zack Street, Tampa, FL 33602

“Built in 1911, this building served as headquarters for the Tampa Fire Department until 1974 when the building across the street was dedicated.

During its active service years, this building presided over the 63 year transformation from horse-drawn apparatus to diesel powered rescue and firefighting vehicles. Stables were removed and bay doors were enlarged for larger and larger vehicles. Some of the worst fires in Tampa’s history were fought by dedicated firefighters rushing out of this building.

After its active service years, the building was used as storage and office space for city programs. Realizing the importance of preserving Tampa’s fire service history, a group of citizens began a 10 year project of raising funds to restore the building and open the Museum. That the Museum is open today is a testament to the persistent hard work and determination of a handful of citizens and firefighters.”

Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum

2240 9th Ave S, St Petersburg, FL 33712

“The history of African Americans in the St. Petersburg community and throughout the African Diaspora will be the central focus of programming at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American Museum. The Museum serves to preserve this rich history for present and future generations of St. Petersburg residents and visitors to St. Petersburg.

African Americans have played a crucial role in the growth and development of St. Petersburg since the late 1800s. The first African Americans came to this area seeking work. Many of the early migrants worked on the Orange Belt Railroad and other emerging enterprises. As St. Petersburg grew into a major tourist destination, more employment opportunities opened for these early residents. Settling near the downtown area to be near jobs and the railroad, African Americans established neighborhoods and the community grew, establishing independent institutions. In spite of segregation and discrimination, the area thrived culturally.”
