Day trips from Tampa

Busch Gardens: Busch Gardens is a theme park, safari and zoo all in one. Located within the city of Tampa, this entertainment complex is brimming with thrill rides, stage shows and animals from the African Savannah. Travel like a cheetah on the ‘Cheetah Hunt’ roller-coaster, get a chance to help with animal feeding at Jambo Junction and take in the bird’s-eye view in the treetop trails.

Babcock Wilderness Adventures: Babcock Wilderness Adventures is a ranch located just under a two-hour drive from Tampa. Cowboys may not come to mind when you think of Florida, but ranches, cows, horses and country music are a big part of the state’s identity. Still a working cattle ranch, Babcock offers tours that take you through a landscape of swamps, grassland and canyons — plus you get to sneak a peek inside the family ranch.

Walt Disney World Resort: Only an hour’s drive from the city is Walt Disney World Resort Florida. Meet Micky Mouse and friends at this world-famous theme park, where you and your family can enjoy a huge amount of thrill rides in the Magic Kingdom, a safari adventure at Animal Kingdom and movie magic at Hollywood Studios.
