This was my first time at a professional soccer game of any kind. Although it poured about half the time, and the other time it just rained, it was very much worth it. The electricity in the crowd is unlike any other sporting event I've been to. For 90 minutes people are on their feet chanting USA, Dempsey, etc. If you get the chance and like sports of any kind I would highly recommend going, I can say I will be finding other USA games wherever they are and going in the future. Favorite movie theatre in Tampa. This old historic theatre gets the classics to art-house indie releases, and even some cool love concerts.

A new & unique coffee shop in downtown Tampa's art district of Ybor City. Grab a cup of coffee or tea, and shop for some cool clothes while you are there. RiverWalk GO PACK GO In the pavilion of birds, a friendly employee of the company offered us honest advice: do not spend your money on the nectar to feed the birds; it's so hot out that they aren't very interested in eating right now, but come back in a little while once they're cooled down from their baths. We walked into the pavilion, interested in seeing the birds while opting not to try and feed them, and found the birds flying around like wild, bathing in the pools of water gathering from the sprinklers, and drying themselves on bushes. This little guy decided to show off to me, just before he decided to fly up and sit on my boyfriend's head. Great views of Downtown Tampa great history Eggs, gyro meat and feta cheese pressed on Cuban bread. Baked kale chips with dipping sauces. I like Newcastle beer despite regardless of tap size, but it can't hurt to try and get an edge. Natural spring leading to Hillsborough river. Now has Water Works park built around it.
