Tampa Bay & Sarasota

3 NIGHTS Tampa Bay • 5 NIGHTS Sarasota

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.

Some might call it artsy, others call it vibrant. But whatever you call it, Sarasota is a fabulous mix of sun, sand, fun, and culture. This lively beach community is fringed with white strips of sugary quartz sand, consistently voted the best beaches in the world. But what we love about Sarasota is the culture. Visit the symphony, the opera, or take your pick of more than 40 art galleries to explore.
