Tampa Bay boasts some of Florida's best natural surroundings for outdoor activities and eco-tourism. Three scenic rivers—Alafia, Hillsborough and Little Manatee—with tidal inlets leading out to open bay water invite endless enjoyment for all ages. In Tampa, you’ll feel one with nature.
Outdoor adventure in Hillsborough County boasts remarkable wildlife and some of the most unique green spaces for eco-tourism opportunities. Take for instance, Lettuce Lake Park, which combines a 240-acre wilderness with activities like hiking, picnic areas and an educational center that leads visitors to an animal inhabited cypress swamp.
Life on Tampa Bay revolves around the water and our water activities exemplify that. Navigate the bay channels on a stand-up paddleboard, charter a boat for a deep-sea Tampa fishing adventure, escape on a canoeing expedition through a 16,000-acre wilderness park or enjoy a fine dining experience on a day cruise aboard a luxury yacht.
The key to life is adventure, so claim your day in the sun at any of Tampa Bay's numerous adventure parks, expeditions, tours, historic sites and experiences. Soak up the sun at Adventure Island, or turn your regular vacation into the adventure of a lifetime at Adventure Family Motorsports. Unlock authentic adventures in Tampa Bay!
