Tampa & Longboat Key

3 NIGHTS Tampa • 5 NIGHTS Longboat Key

Florida’s Tampa Bay has something for everyone…vibrant nightlife, outdoor excursions, stunning waterfronts, thrilling rollercoasters and engaging museums, all to be enjoyed in Florida’s famous year round sunshine.

Enjoy big thrills and close up animal encounters at Busch Gardens® Tampa Bay, immerse yourself in all things marine based at two fantastic aquariums, see more than 1,200 animals on 56 lush acres at Lowry Park Zoo and experience hands on exhibits at the Museum of Science and Industry or explore the beautiful installations and catch a live glassblowing demonstration at the Chihuly Collection.

Shopping, of course, is an essential part of any Florida holiday and Tampa is the perfect place to find bargains galore. You’ll find quirky boutique shopping in Ybor City and more mainstream stores at Old Hyde Park Village and Westshore Plaza. Whatever you do, be sure to save space in your case for a visit to International Plaza, an upmarket shopping mall that’s home to big-name stores like Tiffany, Diesel and Abercrombie & Fitch.

Longboat Key is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, sophisticated restaurants and a laidback vibe. Just 10 minutes north of Longboat Key lies Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island full of character and charm. Explore the independent boutique stores that line the streets, or head out on to the stunning white sandy beaches and enjoy peace and tranquillity. With nothing over 3 storeys allowed on Anna Maria Island, you will find yourself taking a step back to Old Florida and enjoying the authenticity and natural beauty of a destination that is not over-crowded nor over-commercialised.
