The hillsborough river waterfront and the Tampa Convention Center are the heart of both business and festive events. The area has scenic dining spots, nightclubs, and amusement zones, perfect for business visitors. It was much better in this downtown district for keeping you active and entertained monday-friday, after your long work day.
The town is a buzz with action, as plenty of out of town business professional stay in the city center on a daily basis. Easy to walk to bars, lots of interesting dishes to try. Good job on including south Tampa's cutest little Waterfront Park, Ballast Point. It is such a neat place to go for walking fitness. It is Tampa's top Community Park.
Make sure you get over and walk the entire sidewalk area of Bayshore Boulevard. Neat, it runs for about five miles or so. At the far end is ballast point picnic park. Love all the zany restaurants in the area. An event at the Tampa Convention Center is your chance to indulge in all of the amenities of Tampa's Waterfront Entertainment District. The downtown area is loaded with cool spots, Happy Hours, cigar bars, and live music.
Near the Convention Center, bayshore boulevard is certainly one of the better places in the area for Bicycle Riding. It starts right there at the Convention Center and you can take it all away down almost to the air force base, over by gandy boulevard.
