Where to Eat
The downtown area offers a wide array of cuisines. Pizza can be found on virtually every corner, and there are quite a few Mexican restaurants, including the Taco Bus. Sports bars are abundant as well, and this is because Amalie Arena is located downtown. Tampa as a whole is big on the food scene, so there aren't a whole lot of chain restaurants. This ensures the food is good, the menus are filled with variety, and the cuisines to choose from are abundant. Whatever you have a taste for, it can be found in the downtown area.
What You'll See
It seems as though there is always something going on downtown. People are walking down the streets on their way to work, people dressed for concerts are rushing to the arena in the evening, and families enjoy the various green spaces when the weather is nice. Channelside Drive is where the Tampa Port exists and so it's filled with a variety of tourists, particularly on weekends, exploring the area and taking in all of the shops.
Friday Night Fun
Fridays are always exciting in downtown Tampa and this is because of the various wine bars and microbreweries. Channelside may have live music going on and it's a beautiful view of the bay no matter what. Amalie Arena always has events going on as well, such as a Tampa Bay Lightning game or a concert. Whether it involves walking around to explore the sights and sounds or even taking a dinner yacht on the bay, downtown knows how to keep everyone entertained.
The Perfect Sunday
Sundays are spent walking around and enjoying the many restaurants that offer brunch. Most of the corporate offices are closed, making traffic much more bearable. Biking around the Channelside area can be a lot of fun, especially when the sun isn't at its brightest. The Orange County Convention Center may even have a family-friendly event going on, such as the Home Show or a special event for kids. Parents can also take their kids to the Glazer Children's Museum, which has an abundance of exhibits that are designed for hands that love to explore.
