Hi-I'm young, only 18, and my soon to be husband is in the Air Force. He has been stationed in Tampa for quite some time now, and we're ready to move myself and our two year old son down there from Oklahoma, where we currently live. I won't re-begin college until fall, so for awhile I'll be a stay at home mom, something I've never even thought about doing. I'm just wondering what there is in Tampa to do with a young child. Are there a lot af parks? I grew up in Denver, and miss the city, but my son has never been there, as we live in Hillbilly Hell now. LOL But anyhoo, if anyone could just please let me know what there is out there for us to do...it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,
There is plenty to do in Tampa with Toddler/Preschoolers. The Lowry Park Zoo is a great place to go for a few hours at a time. You can purchase an annual pass for not too much money. There is a toddler spray ground that I am sure your son will love to run around in. Right next door to the Zoo is a great Children's Museum called Kid City. It's like a child-size town. The Florida Aquarium is another nice place to spend a few hours, with another water sprayground (pirate ship themed). In addition to these places, there are several parks/playgrounds. A Mom's group might be a nice idea for you also. Trust me, you won't be bored in Tampa.

You'll probably get better advice if you give your neighborhood.

Tampa is rather spread out. I'm new here myself, but lived in nearby Pinellas County, (St. Pete) for a while.

We're living at a place called "Island Walk", it's just off Hillsborough Avenue...about seven miles from the airport...
