Although the first word that springs to mind when you think of Tampa-St. Petersburg is probably "beaches," maybe it should be "family."
Without exception, parents who want to give their children the experience of growing up seaside choose Tampa Bay. With 3 of the 10 best beaches in the country practically at your door, there's no excuse to stay inside playing video games. It isn't all about the beaches, either--the Tampa area is jam-packed with family-friendly attractions that will fill your weekends for months or years after you move in. Families cite trips to Clearwater Beach and Busch Gardens for bringing their kids together. Who wouldn't want to spend a day at one of the most pristine white-sand beaches in the country, or ride one of the thrill rides at one of its best amusement parks? "Family time" may just take on a whole new meaning.
While Clearwater is probably your best bet if you're headed surfside with kids, there comes a time in every family's life when the adults in the family need time together at the beach too. The beaches of Caladesi Island State Park, Fort DeSoto County Park, and Siesta Beach are less crowded, more peaceful, and full of natural beauty. Fort DeSoto Park is a frequent contender for the title of "top beach in the U.S.," rivaled only by the beaches of Hawaii. With no plane tickets to buy, and a near-guaranteed spot off-season, that's a great deal for Tampa Bay area residents.
Once a fort, a fishing village, and finally the U.S. shipping capital for a popular brand of Cuban cigars, the city of Tampa may not be popularly known for its history, but there's plenty to find if you keep your eyes open. The Ybor City District, on the National Register of Historic Places, is a great place to start. Take a walking tour and sit down for a great meal in the city's Cuban quarter--there's more to Tampa than meets the eye.
The strong presence of the arts in Tampa complements its Old Florida roots. The Salvador Dali museum highlights the city's aesthetic tastes, but also its connection to the Latin world. The Straz Center for the Performing Arts, the Plant Museum, and other institutions chronicle Tampa's relationship with the fine arts. Keep exploring-- great new artists emerge every year from Tampa's underground arts scene. American Style magazine recently named Tampa as a "Top Arts Destination."
