    Default nice touristy area near Tampa, Fl?

    I know there are quite a few members from Florida on this board and I wanted to see if anyone could offer a suggestion.

    What is a nice area within an hours drive of Tampa, that is on the beach?

    Looking for places that have bicycle paths, walking paths, nice hotels, easy access to the beach - the typical tourist thing.

    How is the west side of Saint Petersburg?

    without a doubt, "Martino's" on Vine Street in Cincy has the best wings I have ever had, and I'm not real fond of chips.

    but anyhow - anyone have any recomendations for the Tampa area?

    There are a lot of nice areas in and around St Pete and Tampa. Downtown St. Pete has a nice area where you can bike, walk, jog. There are a few museums (Dali is very nice) there and some nice shops. It is on the waters edge. Tampa has Bay to Bay/Gulf to Bay which is the longest, continous sidewalk in the south. In N. Tampa, there is a toll road called Veteran's Expressway. Next to it is a bike/jogging path that was completed in the last 5-7 yrs.

    I live in N.E. Tampa (called New Tampa). Within 5 miles of me are 4 biking parks and one canoeing area (Hillsborough River). Also, I live on a private lake with an Outback. It should be in the mid 70s tomorrow and the rest of the week. I can give you a pull if interested.

    Also, Busch Gardens is a decent place with good rides and lot of animals. The Lowery Park zoo is nice, the Tampa Aquarium is nice (I haven't been) and the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) has lots for kids to do.
