Cool things to do
The city of Tampa was recently named “Top Arts Destination” by American Style Magazine and continues to live up to that title with independent and foreign films, opera and orchestra performances, an amazing Broadway series and a variety of museums and cultural centers. For more culture, head to the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, celebrating works from the famed Spanish painter. Or try the St. Petersburg Art Walk, which takes places every month.
The Gasparilla Pirate Festival is a free event every January that has been going on for more than 100 years. Check out pirate ships in the bay and enjoy live music at the Pirate Fest Street Festival.
Tampa sporting scene
Tampa is home to three major league sports teams, the NFL’s Buccaneers, Major League Baseball’s Rays and hockey’s Lightning. The Bucs (as they are affectionately called) play football in the same stadium as USF’s football team.
