The urban heart of Florida’s west coast is beating faster these days! A multitude of new developments are adding to the downtown community’s abundance of unique experiences; deluxe hotels, hip new restaurants, and big-budget expansions all add up to unforgettable new discoveries. Downtown Tampa features a variety of events held at Curtis Hixon Park, concerts & shows at the Straz Performing Arts Center, Hockey games & more at the Amalie Arena, and a modern River Walk with a water taxi option. For a more scenic and chilled out experience, many people find themselves drawn to the Historic Hyde Park Village, an outdoor lifestyle center offering a mix of national, regional and local retail shops, extraordinary dining, an upscale cinema, live music, full service salon, specialized markets, and more. Tampa has a rich history with several museums to choose from, along with its Historic Ybor center. Treasure awaits.
