What I ate:
How I got around:
The public transportation system in Tampa is not very good, so when I have been to Tampa I have driven, ridden with friends, or used rideshare apps like Lyft and Uber.
Being from Florida, I enjoy the moderate climate in the Tampa area. The weather is relatively warm year-round, but usually has a nice breeze due to the proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. My favorite sports teams (Tampa Bay Lightning and Tampa Bay Buccaneers) both play in Tampa, so it is a treat to watch them play whenever I can. Also, some of my favorite restaurants are located in Tampa.
Least favorite thing:
Tampa lacks a good public transportation system, especially when compared to other major cities.
For next time:
It have not been to Busch Gardens since I was a kid, so it would be nice to go there again. Even though the presentation value may not be as high as its neighbors in Orlando (Universal Studios and Walt DisneyWorld), Busch Gardens does have bigger rides. Also, I would like to have dinner at Bern's Steakhouse sometime. Although it would be expensive, if it is half as good as its dessert room or its reputation, it would be amazing.
