As local movers Tampa relies on for their Florida moves and as Tampa residents ourselves, here at Big Boys Moving and Storage, we spend a lot of time enjoying Tampa hot spots. So today, in honor of all of our newest Tampa residents, we thought we’d share some of our favorite spots today here on our blog to give you a chance to explore!
Local Movers Tampa Share Must See Local Hotspots
Just moved to Tampa and ready to explore some great local hotspots? Thinking about moving to Tampa and want to know more about the local hotspots? Either way, we’ve got you covered!
Right across the street from Busch Gardens in Tampa, Adventure Island is a great family spot if you are looking for something to keep the kids busy while including you in on the fun as well! A favorite among water park lovers, Adventure Island has something for everyone, but keep in mind that this isn’t a free opportunity. Adults pay $44.89, children ages 3 to 9 are $40.61, and children under 2 get free access. The tickets are for a single day pass, but if you plan on spending plenty of time here, we recommend a multi-day pass or a year-long pass to save a bundle!
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay
One of our favorite destinations in Tampa has to be Busch Gardens! It’s a great day out for the whole family, but it can be equally as fun if you’re looking for a trip for just the two of you! The park boasts plenty of incredible rides for those of you who like to go for an adrenaline rush, but if thrills are less of your thing and you’d rather observe some pretty incredible animals while spending a relaxing day strolling around the park, you’ll find that here too! Adults pay $84.99 to get in, children ages 3-9 pay $76.99, and children under 2 are admitted for free!
Ciro’s Speakeasy & Supper Club
If you’re not a fan of the more “touristy” locations and you’re looking for somewhere that you can relax and unwind while grabbing some delicious food and incredible adult beverages, Ciro’s Speakeasy and Supper Club is one of our go-to places of choice! Modeled after the clubs in Soho District and Greenwich Village areas of New York, we recommend grabbing some monkey bread to start and when it comes to getting something more substantial, go with the Grilled Wagyu Beef Butcher’s Steak, you just can’t go wrong with either one!
The Claw at USF
Are you a golf lover? If so, forget everywhere else on our list and check out The Claw at USF! As local movers that Florida relies on for moving their homes and businesses, we are always looking for a great way to unwind and The Claw is just that! We can’t promise that you’ll get the best score you’ll ever get, after all, The Claw is one of the most challenging public golf courses in the Tampa area, but you’ll have an amazing time under the shade of the Cyprus, pine, and oak trees no matter what score you get!
Dead River Wilderness Park
If you have dogs, like to hike, love to canoe, or just like getting away from the “big city” once in a while, Dead River Wilderness Park is a great escape in Tampa. You don’t have to give up the convenience of living in a big city or the escape of a great outdoor spot. Grab a picnic and take yourself out of the city for the weekend, take your bike for a little cross-country fun, relax with a little fishing, or just work those calf muscles with a hike while you enjoy the sounds of nature.
Hyde Park Village
Not everyone who moves to Tampa misses the quiet greenery that some other states have to offer, sometimes the lure of a great shopping and dining spot is enough to turn your head! If you are one of those people who likes to get out of themselves for a great weekend of shopping and good food, we recommend taking a trip to Hyde Park Village after you’ve settled into your new home. You’ll find plenty of your favorite big name stores as well as some great boutique stores and when you’re finished shopping the day away, there are some incredible restaurants to check out too!
Raymond James Stadium
We’d be remiss if we didn’t include Raymond James Stadium on our list of great local hot spots to check out when you move to Tampa! Many of our local movers Tampa calls on for regular moving services enjoy catching a game at Raymond James Stadium and we know that you will too! It’s not just a great experience to see our local NFL team play, but it’s an experience in and of itself just to see our incredible pirate ship first hand! Raymond James Stadium isn’t all about football though, you can find plenty of other incredible events to attend there too from concerts to monster truck shows!
Tampa Premium Outlets
Even when you move to Tampa, the Tampa Premium Outlets are still a great day trip and an incredible opportunity to get furnishings for your new home and new clothes for your new job at a fantastic price! Once you’re settled into your new home, drop by the Tampa Premium Outlets and check out all of your favorite outlet shops including Calvin Klein, Saks Avenue off 5th, and Under Armour!
