Hey everyone.  Travis here again with more great things to do in Tampa Bay for the fourth of July.  This time, the Tampa Bay History Center is offering free admission for all visitors on July 4th (courtesy of a sponsorship by John Bales Attorneys and Bales Security Agency, Inc.) 

Plus, the History Center is extending the hours of the galleries until 8:30 pm so visitors who want to view the Channelside fireworks from Cotanchobee Park can get some relief from the heat and pass the time until the 9:00 launch.  The galleries will be open until 8:30 pm and the Lykes Atrium and Columbia Cafe will be open until at least 10:00 pm.

I'm sure that it'll be packed there, so everyone is encouraged to arrive early as there will be activity throughout the day at Channelside Bay Plaza and multiple showings of “Saltimbanco” at the St. Pete Times Forum.  Visitors can park at the St. Pete Times Forum VIP East lot which is just north of the History Center building, the Channelside parking garage, various downtown surface lots, downtown street parking or in the Ybor City parking garage, taking the HARTline trolley to the History Center.

Now, we have given you a ton of different options to enjoy some Tampa Bay entertainment for the Fourth of July...so, which one will you be at?  or, do you have somewhere else we haven't mentioned...let us know. 

Remember to keep checking in for more great things to do in Tampa Bay for the fourth of July!
