Hey gang!  Travis here with a small tid bit of info that we thought we should share.  Have you ever wondered exactly how we provide exposure for Tampa Bay as a tourist destination?  Well, one way we do that is by hosting journalists to experience all of our Tampa treasures. 

Well, we recently hosted UK freelance travel writer Kerry Bailey.  Bailey’s story will reach more than six million readers and be featured in publications such as The Daily Mail, Teletext Holiday, and The Oxford Mail and Times Newspaper. 

Side note - in case you didn't know, the UK is Tampa's #1 market! 

The focus of her story is to showcase Tampa as a vacation destination and as an alternative to Orlando by highlighting only-in-Tampa experiences.  During her trip, she toured venues such as the Tampa Theatre and partook in Ybor City’s arts and culture with visits to the Ybor City State Museum and the Columbia Restaurant.  Plus, she encountered attractions like Big Cat Rescue, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, The Florida Aquarium, MOSI, Canoe Escape and Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. 

We'll share her story as soon as it comes out, but this is awesome exposure for Tampa Bay! 

Ok, that's our Tampa tourism update for now, but stay tuned for more updates about this and great things to do in Tampa Bay!
