There are many theme parks
around Tampa. I can personally recommend Busch Gardens as I went there about
seven times last year and have been on all the coaster rides at least ten times.
Oh, be prepared to get wet as it's an African theme park and there's plenty of
water. If you click on any of the Logo's it will take you to that Attraction, in
a round about way!
We have other places in and
around Tampa that you should check out. Take a look at the following website,
you won't be disappointed.
Orlando is about 75 miles from
Tampa along the INTERSTATE 4 and takes about 1.5 hrs by car if the roads are not
to busy. All signposting to the Park of your choice is excellent. Just remember
to get in the correct lane well in advance on approaching your theme park.
Parking is excellent and you will not have a problem. It is always wise to write
down on something handy what row and lot number you parked that vehicle. Believe me they all look the same in amongst
Once again to view a theme
park click on the Logo below. Have a great day and remember, sunglasses, a hat

world is yours. If you have children you
should take a visit to the Miami Sea Aquarium.
For the children in all of us,
everyone should visit the Kennedy Space Center.
to feed fish?
Feed the Tarpon at Robbie's of
Islamorada. These fish are huge. If you want to hear your wife or

for directions on how to get there.

of these fish were in excess of 200lbs.
We also have some special friends

places around Florida where you can view them and marvel at their size. Try
Homosassa Wild Life Park. You can get there by driving north on the US19 from
