What To Do In Tampa FLWhat To Do In Tampa FL when it’s raining.  Take a look at a past blue sky day. We are so used to our blue sky that we kind of take it for granted so when a gray day comes along there is always lots of moaning and groaning; especially on a weekend.


The sky is usually gloriously blue and it’s that way most of the time in Florida so don’t let today’s gray sky scare you. And there are lots of things to do inside.

We were at the University of Tampa when I took these pictures; it’s such a beautiful place to wander around in. I love to go there in December for the Christmas Stroll. Come on down to see Tampa and be sure to stop at some of the beautiful places.

The Tampa Bay History Center is at 801 Old Water  St., (813)228-0097. The Columbia Cafe is in the lobby.  Adults are $12.95; Seniors $10.95; Students $10.95, Children 4-12 $7.95; 3 and under Free. Open daily 10 am to 5 pm. The intersection of Old Water St. and Channelside Dr. will be closed for construction Aug. 10 – Sept. 30, 2015. Please allow extra travel time for your visit.

Tampa Firefighters Museum at 720 Zack Street. The building served as headquarters for the Tampa Fire Dept. until 1974 when the operation was moved across the street. The building presided over the 63 year transformation from horse-drawn apparatus to diesel-powered rescue and firefighting vehicles. A group of citizens began a 10 year project to raise the funds for the restoration of the building in order to preserve the history of the firefighters of Tampa, FL.

Founded by cigar manufacturers in the 1880’s, Ybor City is located northeast of downtown Tampa.  It was populated by immigrants from Spain, Cuba, and Italy and is one of Tampa’s historic neighborhoods and is a National Historic Landmark district. Here’s a link to the Ybor City Chamber of Commerce.

Lots to do in Tampa; we’ll cover more next time.
