Hey Tampa, Lisa here with exciting news about FREE Things To Do In Tampa Bay! Enjoy FREE guided walks

The Tampa Downtown Partnership has created a walking program titled Do The Local Motion to encourage Tampa residents to get outside, and fight adult obesity.

This Friday afternoon from 12pm - 1pm they will be hosting a FREE guided walking tour. Modern day pirates will lead the way spinning tales and and talking about traditions associated with Gasparilla. The tour leaves from Lykes Gaslight Square and covers most of the parade route. They do ask for you to register before hand.

Local Motion has created a free fitness program combining walking with culture and community. Six 1-2 mile routes are available and they feature Tampa's public art, architecture and history. The tours are once a month and are always FREE.

Not only are they offering free walking tours, they are also offering free fitness assessments, incentive programs, downloadable maps and pod casts featuring local musicians and a self guided tour.

The goal of the Tampa Downtown Partnership is to promote downtown through marketing, business development, transportation and beautification efforts.

This sounds like a really fun way to get in the Gasparilla spirit!

That's all for now, but keep checking in for more Tampa Bay Area Events!
