Tampa

Big Guava

Tampa ranks among the country's most livable cities, attracting newcomers with its growing economy and status as a major port on the Gulf of Mexico. Start your sightseeing in Tampa by visiting its oldest and most diverse neighborhood just northeast of downtown, once home to dozens of cigar factories and now the city's major nightclub and entertainment district. Originally inhabited by Native Americans, Tampa became the subject of European exploration in the 16th century, resulting in brief but violent conflicts between the two cultures. Tampa remained a quiet village of just several hundred people for most of its history, slowly developing into a busy commercial center only in the 20th century. Now, the city attracts tourism for its nature-focused attractions, including two aquariums, a botanical garden, and a pristine, sandy beach. Tampa is in Florida. Whether you only want to go to Tampa, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly United States driving holiday app.
