My family and I will be going on vacation next week (July 1-8). We are staying in Ybor City. So far we have Busch Gardens, the zoo, the aquarium in Clearwater and the Big Cat refuge on our itinerary, possibly the Dali museum and a canoe trip.

What day would be the best to visit Busch Gardens? What other areas/places are must see? Is Ybor City really as rough as some make it out to be? I of course read nothing but good things until after the reservations were booked But the area looks beautiful, so we will give it a shot.

Thanks in advance!

You would really like the Lowery Park Zoo.

For canoes its hard to beat a 4 hour paddle down the Weeki Wachee River, its about an hours drive north of Tampa (Suncoast Parkway)and parts of the drive can be congested but IMO worth the trip/

If you are over by Clearwater a 10 mile drive south on Gulf Blvd you'll come to Johns Pass,at the south end of Madeira Beach very lively place and great beach across the street.

Also a trip over the Skyway Bridge is a thrill and a great photo op perhaps a picnic lunch at one of the two rest areas

Enjoy the trip..

like baseball? Ray will be playing the Kansas City Royals while you're here and tickets (stubhub) are cheap....park downtown, take the trolley into the stadium for free (parking at metered parking is free after 6 pm). Cheap tix on Stubhub - buy the cheapest and move round to many parts of the stadium and sit where you want......
