Hi guys, Julian here with more great stuff to do on father's day: As a gift to all Fathers, there will be free admission to the Henry B. Plant Museum on Father's Day, June 20th from 12 noon – 5 pm! Come to the Museum and escape to the former Tampa Bay Hotel. Are you aware that the former Tampa Bay Hotel was touted as the only fireproof building south of Baltimore? It is made of brick, concrete from crushed Florida oyster shells and the walls are reinforced with steel cables that were left over from the Brooklyn Bridge. The mahogany throughout the Museum is from Cuba, the light bulbs are reproductions of the Thomas Edison carbon filament light bulb and the furnishings are from all over the world. Don’t miss this most unforgettable journey…find out what it is like to be a time-traveler!
